About Relaxation Day

When is Relaxation Day? This holiday is always celebrated on August 15

Those lazy, crazy, hazy days of summer continue, at least for a little while longer. Soon, vacations will be over, the weather will cool down, and the kids will go back to school. For now, there’s still time to savor these last weeks of summer as Relaxation Day is here. On this August 15 holiday, the expectation is that we kick back and do nothing. Ahhhh! What a great day it’s going to be.

The stresses, the hustle, and bustle seemingly consume 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 to stress, then make plans to play golf another day. Spending the day in a hammock is a far more appropriate activity.

Today’s Motto: Love simply, laugh often, and wine a lot.

Top Ten Ways to Enjoy Relaxation Day

  7. Spend the day at the beach.
  8. Go to the movies.
  9. Do a little gardening. (no heavy-duty work, though)
  10. Have a picnic in the park
