Relaxation Day

When : August 15th

Relaxation Day is a day to kick back and do nothing. Ahhhh! What a great day.

The stresses, the hustle and bustle seemingly consumes us, every day of the year. Even Sundays are no longer days of rest and relaxation. There never seems to be a day to just kick back and relax. For those of us with a hectic lifestyle, Relaxation Day is a day to look forward to. It provides a break from the madness of your busy work and personal schedule. Today is the day to enjoy either doing absolutely nothing, or partaking in your favorite relaxation activity.

Avoiding stressful activities today is the rule. For example, if golf is your favorite hobby, yet it can cause you stress, then make plans to play golf another day. Spending the day in a hammock is a far more appropriate activity.

Top Ten ideas to enjoy on Relaxation Day:

Do nothing today
Go to a Spa
Go fishing
Play a round of golf(caution: not always relaxing)
Lounge around in a hammock
Take a bubble bath
Spend the day at the beach
Go to the movies
Do a little gardening (no heavy duty work, though)
Have a picnic in the park

The Origin of Relaxation Day:
Our research did not find the creator, or the origin of this day. By far, the most common references to this day on the Internet are from spas. It appear that health spas have adopted Relaxation Day for themselves.

    Check out the cute pic on my page......

2 old guys sitting on a porch talking.
One says to the other, "My wife asked me "whatcha doing today?"
I said "Nothing"
She said "You did that yesterday"
I said "I wasn't finished"

I can relax very easily, lol

    Unfortunately too much to do to relax too much today. Corn is ready to put in the freezer and things to do with the grandkids.
