National Relaxation Day

National Relaxation Day - August 15

We live in a frantic pace of life, we are constantly in a hurry and do not notice anything around. But in order to be in good shape and enjoy every day you live, you need rest. At National Relaxation Day you can relax 100%! The date is dedicated to everyone who needs to recuperate.

The History

A simple ten-year-old boy named Sean Moeller came up with the idea for the holiday. It happened in 1985. Sean said in an interview with an American newspaper that adults should have a day in which they can do nothing – even clean the house and make plans for tomorrow.

Adults thought – but really, why not create such a day? Everyone supported the founders. It’s great that today it is celebrated with pleasure!

Interesting facts

What else is interesting:

  • There is a similar holiday – National Slacker Day. People think they are the same, although the second National Day was invented in the UK;

  • 45% of people do not know how to relax.
