Dolly Parton's song Nine to Five brings back memories to many of how the workplace used to be. When you knocked off from work you were free. The shift in the types of jobs available and the advent of the mobile phone has meant many people now do not get a clean break from work. Rather than being able to "knock off" we are now pretty much "on call". Life is a constant grind of being in touch with work and stuffing experiences into our crowded lives. So many people do not get any quiet, reflective and calming down time.
