How do You Relax? There’s a Special Day!
National Relaxation Day falls on Saturday, August 15th. Yep, there's a special day dedicated to the art of doing absolutely nothing. According to daysoftheyear.com, the day was established in 1985 by a fourth-grader suggesting that people should NOT do anything of real value on August 15th. That's pretty much every Saturday and Sunday for me. Throw in the COVID-19 pandemic, and it seems almost EVERY day. Strange times, for sure.
How much can a person relax? I guess everyone's tolerance is different. I consider sleeping in a mode of relaxation. Watching Netflix, Hulu, or any streaming service is relaxing for me. I admit that I spend a lot of time online, searching for deals that aren't really necessary and aren't in the budget.
Recently, I've also found cooking to be relaxing. It seems there's a lot of time to relax during a pandemic. Our gyms haven't re-opened yet. so, there's a lot of time to peruse cooking websites and create different dishes. Better yet, heat up the grill and barbecue on the patio. My husband and I have been spending quality time on the patio, almost every night, doing nothing of real value, in other words, relaxing.
What do you do to relax? I find pedicures to be relaxing. Some people go fishing or camping, which I find NOT relaxing at all. There is a lot of preparing and packing involved with those activities.
I believe I get enough relaxing in. I'm ready for some action. I took the bike out of the shed, dusted it off, and traveled a bit of Richland's Riverfront trail. And, my cat's stroller should be arriving any day now. That'll be me, walking, no baby, just a cat. Now, go relax. How do you relax? Comment on our app.
