National Relaxation Day

National Relaxation Day

Today is National Relaxation Day!

The annual holiday was started by 9 year old Sean Moeller. This brilliant kid told his local Michigan paper  “People don’t think enough about relaxing. They think too much about working, and that’s not good because if you work too hard, then you can get a fever or get run-down and maybe even get sick.”

And...Voila an entire day dedicated to winding down and kicking back!

Here are some great ideas of how to make the most of this all to needed holiday.

I'm packing today for our official Family Summer Vacation in Providence, RI so there won't be too much relaxing for me. But I will absolutely be using some of these techniques during our trip!


Stretch Out Your Favorite Morning Ritual

Coffee? Check. Newspaper? Check. Favorite Playlist? Check! Hang out at home and actually read the whole paper. Or catch up on your favorite magazines or that book you've been meaning to read. Today's the day to make the time!


Take The Day Off From Technology

Nothing make you feel more relaxed than putting down your phone. Due to a mishap we had two days with no phone, TV. or internet. It was amazing how much longer the nights felt (in a good way). And how relaxed we all felt after sitting on the porch watching the sunset just enjoying each others company.


Take A Moment To Zone

If you don't want to give up your phone there are some great apps to help you zone out and re-center. Lake Coloring App will allow you to get lost in creating a beautiful picture. While Calm Meditation App uses soothing nature sounds, images and music to help you melt away.


Do Something Frivolous

You know all those things that you always want to try but they fall to the bottom of your list because you just don't have the time to waste.....well go for it! It's your day why not do something you really want to and will enjoy. After all John Lennon said, "time you enjoy wasting, was not wasted."


Do Absolutely Nothing

In a hammock if you can....need I say more
