While the rest of us are working out butts off, Finland’s new Prime Minister wants to introduce a four-day work week and six-hour days, reports Evening Standard.

 “I believe people deserve to spend more time with their families, loved ones, hobbies and other aspects of life,” said Sanna Marin (34), the youngest female head of government in the world. 

Neighboring Sweden, tried the six-hour workday in 2015. The result was a more productive and much happier workforce – duh.

Marin leads a five-party center-left coalition – completely led by women. However, in her opinion, it is not a question of governing with a feminine style but offering help and keeping promises to voters.
