August 15th National Relaxation Day

Why do these days always seem to fall during the work week? Clearly someone who is either retired, or not working created them. Seeing as how no one has claimed it, it makes me think it may be the latter.

However, that being said, today is a day to sleep in, and let your mind, and muscles, take a break (or serve in Congress which is about the same thing). We do need to relax though, it builds us back up, and makes us actually more productive when it is time to work.

In some ways, wouldn’t it be nice if we could sleep walk through our day. Get our work done while we sleep so we can accomplish two things at once! Or how about doing one of those 5k runs!?! If we could sleep through it we could get in shape while catching up on our sleep! Most work an 8 hour day and they say, whoever they are, that we should get 8 hours of sleep too, perfect! Get them both done at the same time!

Then when we are awake we can spend more time… you got it… relaxing! We could be the most relaxed creatures on earth! The same “they” also say we are most creative when we are relaxed. I assume that’s because we don’t have to think about what we have to do. I know a lot of people that I have worked with don’t ever seem to be thinking about work when they are working.

So today is your day to relax. Sit back and let your mind wander, your muscles unwind and your nerves settle. You deserve it because… well because… just because.

How to celebrate – Spend your day relaxing. Figure out your own relaxation schedule, so long as it doesn’t require any effort. Don’t worry, be happy.
