Laurie Ruettimann says Work-Life Balance Starts At The Beach

Laurie Ruettimann Worldwide FOT

Now that it’s summertime, I’m back at the beach.

From now until Labor Day, I’ll be at the beach at least once a week. I’ll wake up at the crack of dawn, drive to the ocean, fall asleep, read, eat some snacks, and then drive home in time for dinner.

We had some weather, so my weekly beach outings for Summer 2016 were delayed. I finally made it out, last week, and it was magnificent. I read The Vegetarian (it was good) and playedLetterpress (I’m bad at it). I worked on my commencement speech. I took some hardcore naps.

No social media. No HR blogging. No stress. The whole thing cost me a half-tank of gas and whatever I spent on pink lemonade and a grilled cheese sandwich at the local restaurant.
