Before you finish for Christmas

21 December 2011 01:59

Well, it's almost time to wrap up for Christmas and New Year and do that last minute (or first minute, in some cases?) shopping.


Before we bid farewell to 2011, let's have a look at what people will be doing whilst they're on holiday.
 
It appears that 46% of employees are planning on checking their work e-mails when on holiday between Christmas and New Year, according to a BBC report.  E-mail on our mobile devices have made us slaves to work.  We no longer control our lives - our jobs control us!  The analysis in the article of why people feel the need to be in constant contact with the office speaks for itself.
 
So, if you feel that 2011 has sped by faster than any other, then when you start your holiday switch off your work e-mail and calendar from your phone, treat yourself to something nice to enjoy over the holidays and relax.  Go on, we dare you to take back control of your life - and see how you feel in the New Year.  The office will still be there in January.
 
Also, we'd like to let you know that First Train will be closed until Monday the 9th January.
 
May we wish you a fun and restful holiday, a Merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year.
 
With all best wishes,
Chris and The Team
