Dpoll 20: Do you look forward to your weekend?


Today is the first day one of my children needs to work.

This is a part of the school education. Fifty hours of work at a place school agrees with.
This means only one day weekend (Sunday) needed for homework.

I never had a weekend in my entire life.
As a child, I had to wake up at 6 am. Cleaning the house was one of my jobs next to taking care of a large garden, doing all shopping for one week, cleaning the car, etc.
Till today I have no weekend and never celebrated it. I always worked for someone 40-60 hours a week, next to my own company, shelter, volunteering jobs, household, and children.

Although companies can be closed during the weekend, many people work these days. Saturday and Sunday is no longer the week's end. More and more people have a burnout and even children are diagnosed with it.

Do you have a weekend and if so do you look forward to it and is it relaxing time or fully booked?


  • No, I have no weekend

  • Yes, I have a weekend and relax

  • Yes, I have a weekend and it is scheduled 24/24

I work harder from Fri noon to Monday noon, since this is a time other people take off. I get better votes and attention on steem at these times.

Are there other days you take off, which can be seen as your week's end?

50 hours for a child? That is far, much too much.
And you had to get up at 6 a.m., clean the house, the large garden, clean the car, etc.?! Paah, that's incredible. Parents shouldn't really ask for that.
So, I would say we have to reduce working hours considerably, and I would say that as an employer. That more and more people and children suffer from burnout and that nobody does anything about it is irresponsible and I think that apparently it doesn't matter to those who could change something. We shouldn't exploit anyone like that. I find these facts selfish, short-sighted. If I were an employer, I would want workers to feel fit, comfortable, and healthy, and not to build accidents or get sick because they are exhausted, listless, and demotivated. And also at school, why should we stuff the children with knowledge that will make them exhausted and that will make them forget most of the things anyway or not get them in the head. We should take an example from the behavior of animals that are not so hectic. We can look at a duck family or a tiger family in the wild and I think this exudes a lot of harmony and wisdom.
We have forgotten how to live or we have never really lived.
I have free time on weekends, but doing household chores, taking away recycling waste and food shopping is also a lot of work. So that I don't get burnout, I sleep at least 7 hours

I partly agree with it but also notice people/children do not only have a burnout of work and school. Parents want them to join all kinds of clubs too. Weekends, free time are seldom used to relax. There is a lot of time used for all those things we didn't had the time for yet and going on vacation is a must too.

A high percentage of people get stressed out a burnout because of their holiday. How can that be?
