Apparently working more than 39 hours a week is bad for you

  Apparently working more than 39 hours a week is bad for you In recent years, we’ve been learning more about the importance of work-life balance, while also realizing the scary truth: Few of us…A study done by the Australian National University in 2017 found that most of us must do a significant amount of unpaid labor per week (i.e. laundry, childcare, yard work, taxes, etc). Meaning we’re not just working when we’re at work. After reviewing statistics from about 8,000 Australian adults, the study found that people should ideally work 39 hours a week so that they may have time to do household-based labor and have time for important self-care, like cooking nutritious meals and exercising.

The former Entourage star, who was raised in New York City’s Greenwich Village, purchased and gut-renovated a home for himself just a few blocks away a decade ago. Now, it’s his mom’s turn to give her home a proper makeover. “We decided she would move closer to me in Brooklyn,” he told the New York Post regarding his mother's switch to the borough in 2015. “You get really good value out there. We got this place so we could be closer and hang out more.” The five-story townhouse, which the mother-son duo bought for $2.05 million back in 2015, still has many of its original details, including ornate plaster moldings and parquet wood floors. Now, the pair are looking to upgrade the home without losing its original charm, with an emphasis on some serious smart-home technology. According to People, one of the priciest upgrades is a self-cleaning toilet from Japanese company Toto, which retails for $10,200. Other items on their to-add list include a $4,499 JennAir refrigerator with Wi-Fi that allows Grenier and his mom to adjust temperatures via an app, as well as a Soda Stream.

Recently it was reported that filmmaker, actor and Entourage star–and sometime boutique brewer and Brooklyn renovator Adrian Grenier had been spotted checking out a three-bedroom co-op in Chelsea, accompanied by his mom , Brown Harris Stevens broker Karesse Grenier .

“It’s a blessing and a curse,” Adrian Grenier told New York Post of the historic-district home. “The landmarks rules keeps the aesthetics of the neighborhood established. At the same time, we want to push the envelope and include some modern design philosophies. It’s really about finding that balance.” The plan for the full five-floor, four-unit house are unclear at the moment, though it has been speculated that the mother-son pair could make a considerable return by converting the townhouse into condos, rental apartments, or even a huge mega-mansion.
