Take Back Your Time Day

Today is the ninth annual Take Back Your Time Day. In the words of the day’s founder, John de Graaf, the day is “a nationwide initiative to challenge the epidemic of overwork, overscheduling, and time famine that now threatens our health, our families, our communities, and our environment.” October 24 was chosen as Take Back Your Time Day because it falls nine weeks before the end of the year, symbolizing the fact that the average American now works a full nine weeks longer each year than the average European. Learn more about the Take Back You Time movement at or check out de Graaf’s book Take Back Your Time: Fighting Overwork and Time Poverty in America.
