Labor Day, a day marked on many calendars as a well-deserved day off from the grind. Which means it should be considered a day to relax and recharge the batteries, not cram in a weekend on endless activities. Use these tips to ensure a relaxing and stress-free Labor Day.
Connect with Family and Friends
Connecting with family and friends is a stress reliever. Whether it is over the phone or during a relaxing family barbecue; use this Labor Day weekend to sit back and connect with those you haven’t had time to see or talk to in a while. You’ll feel better.
Although Labor Day is for relaxing, it’s also a day to de-stress. Often when we’re going strong in the office — usually burning the “midnight oil” — exercise gets thrown out the window. Take the day to go for a jog, bike ride or a hike. Get out and enjoy nature, it will help you de-stress, and if you do it early in the day, you’ll be completely relaxed to enjoy the rest of your day.
Knock off an item on the “To-Do” list
If you’ve been putting off your to-do list, Labor Day is a perfect day to get something done. It isn't the most relaxing way to spend the day, but it will relieve the looming stress of needing to complete the list. Get at least one thing on your list done and you will feel great and have the rest of the day to relax.
Catch up on Sleep
Labor Day is your day off. Take this day to turn off the alarm clock and catch up on some much-needed sleep. You’ll feel refreshed and ready to go.
Get a Personal Massage
Perhaps the most relaxing thing you could do on Labor Day is take time for yourself and enjoy a well-deserved massage. Your body and your mind will thank you. Nothing beats a day off on the massage table.
