We all love a three day weekend. But what if I told you that you really should be getting a four day weekend! Don't take my word for it. Take the word of science!

A new study out fo the University of Melbourne in Australia found that we should only be working three days a week. Why? Researchers found that our brains can only perform at the peak levels for around 25 hours per week. After that, the quality of our work declines at a rapid rate. The drop off is so bad that if you ever work a crazy 70 plus hour work week, the work you do at the end is basically useless.

The one catch of the study? It only applied to employees over the age of 40. That may mean that younger workers can take more hours of work per week. But for me? Hey, I'm 41 years old. Today is my Friday!
