Hikes Around Cincinnati
While I work from home, my family will tell you if I’m in working mode it is hard to get me to stop.
Now, you and I have a legitimate excuse besides increased productivity and our sanity to leave the office early. June 2, 2016 is National Leave the Office Early Day.
I’m going on a hike. I think you should too.
There are a several places you could go hiking around Cincinnati to see waterfalls – who doesn’t love a good waterfall?
These Cincinnati Area hikes include: Clifton Gorge, The Wilderness Trail, John Bryan State Park, Sharon Woods, Cincinnati Nature Center. and Clifty Falls State Park and Clifty Canyon Nature Preserve. (if you want more detailed maps and descriptions…umm..buy my book.)
While most of these waterfalls are not of Niagara class, they will still fill the air with that wonderful melody. If you want to see some great falls then Clifty in Indiana is going to be the spot to go to. I love Tunnel Falls the best.
Enjoy leaving the office early – just make sure you aren’t heading home to do more work. You deserve and need a mental break — you deserve a hike.
On this day, upon completion of all the necessary day’s work and the needed approval, it is suggested that you can then leave work early to enjoy the rest of the day with fun activities of your choosing. Use #IhikedonLeaveTheOfficeEarlyDay to post on social media.
The History of Leave the Office Earlier Day
This day was the invention of Laura Stack, a specialist in employee productivity, amongst other things. Stack noted that Americans work about 49 hours a week, and a grand total of about 350 more hours a year than most Europeans. This can prove detrimental for many reasons.
Leave the Office Earlier Day is an incentive for employees to complete tasks before schedule, making a conscious effort to increase their efficiency and productivity so they can go home sooner. Basically, the perspective of leaving the workplace earlier acts as a carrot for the hare inside all of us, compelling employees to perform his or her tasks to his or her maximum potential, reducing levels of idleness amongst workers.
