National Relaxation Day

Considering all the different fun holidays, National Relaxation Day on August 15 is our favorite! If ever there was a national holiday made for people, it's this day which encourages us all to slow down, unwind, focus on taking care of ourselves, and relax.

Relaxation is very important as we all need a break from the fast-paced and often hectic lifestyles we live. Especially with the last several months with everything that has been going on, most people have experienced an increase in stress.

Today is all about you and your health, and taking time to rest, recuperate and rejuvenate our tired minds and bodies. Not only are the short-term benefits obvious, but most doctors will agree that finding ways to relax and finding ways to reduce stress will improve overall health and boost our immunity.

By the very nature of our business, we recommend the benefits of getting outdoors and enjoying nature at every opportunity. Be it taking the kids to the local playground and enjoying fun and games, or taking a walk-in nature. There are, however, many ways to relax.

If you're stuck for an idea, we came up with some suggestions...

Reading a book
Fishing with a friend
A picnic in the park
Walking along the beach
Taking a drive in the country
Spa
Golfing
Photography
A movie
Window shopping
Lunch with friends
Drinks with friends
Watching sports
Swimming

These are just a few of the many possible relaxation ideas that you may want to use to celebrate this holiday. However, you choose to celebrate National Relaxation Day, take a deep breath, and unwind. No matter what your your favorite relaxation activity is, if it's outside--be it playgrounds, parks, dog parks or other natural spaces--you will probably enjoy with some of our products.
