When I was a dental tech, the last lab I worked in had a 4 10-hour day schedule. The days were 5:30a-4p, so people still had time in the evenings to do things. And of course, I loved having 3 day weekends.
Three day weekends made weekend trips a lot easier/better, with having Saturday as an entire day on location without worrying about leaving late Friday night to make that happen. Or having to travel both weekend days.
One of the other benefits was having an entire extra day to work on my side projects, which at the time was diving deep into code so I could learn enough to change careers. Having an extra 50 days in that last year was a huge boost for that.
I'd love to have that schedule again.
