How perfect and insane does it sound not working at all the whole day, not even for cleaning? This is the idea of glorious relaxation – to unwind and calm yourself. You won’t tend your garden, run after your children to spoon-feed or wash your piled-up laundry. It’s simply a relaxation day, so chilling is your main motive all through the day.
We all need a mental and physical break from the flurry of work we do daily and when we look back to how crazily we have been working nonstop, a day’s break seems a perfect excuse for a breather. If you are stressed out or desperately needing a holiday/ vacation or simply me-time. This is your day to enjoy.
WHY DO WE LOVE NATIONAL RELAXATION DAY
1. It boosts your mood
Stress is a killer and it can wreak havoc on your state of mind. Relaxation is a great way to relieve stress and improve your mood.
2. Get a good night’s rest
Life can get intense. If your day has you feeling nervous, anxious or fearful, sometimes it’s hard to fall asleep. Take some time to relax before bed with a glass of milk, a good book or some chamomile tea. Your body will thank you for it in the morning.
3. It keeps you healthy
Illness is significantly more common when you’re under stress. By getting your chill on, you’re also reducing trips to the doctor’s office.
History of Relaxation Day
Relaxation Day was founded back in 1985 by Sean Moeller. He was only a fourth-grader at the time. He suggested that on this date people should not do anything of real value. He highlighted that real work and cleaning are not parts of relaxation. Sounds like music to our ears, right? Sometimes, children have the best ideas!
