Today we have Spain announcing a four day workweek experiment, Demi Lovato shares new album, and Taylor Swift being featured on Spirit Untamed‘s trailer.

Four Day Workweek in Spain

The Spanish government has reportedly agreed to start allowing companies to shorten the workweek to four days for employees. The goal with this experiment is to increase productivity and improve the mental health of workers. The proposed three-year project would give companies the ability to try out the four day workweek without much risk. Government funding would cover everything the first year, 50% the second year and 33% the third year, according to the Guardian. Based on other similar experiments like the one done at Microsoft in Japan, reducing office time for workers has shown to improve productivity. If this trend continues this could shift the norm and give all of us more time to rest.
