I don’t schedule things after 6:00 PM or on weekends without having a very specific reason. If I do work then, I take some other time off. If you bring something big into your life, take something big out.

Many studies emphases that employees that reduced working time to 4-day's a week, were ‘freed up’ to spend ‘quality time’ with friends, family, or themselves on a weekend. This included working (grand)mothers and (grand)fathers being more actively involved in children’s lives (sharing meals, attending day-care/school activities, talking and connecting, etc.).
