No matter how much you Netflix and chilled this weekend, there is something about Mondays that are inherently, well, not relaxing. Perhaps it’s the crash of coming down from a few day carefree bender or having to actually face and tackle your to-do list, but Mondays are, to state it simply, not great.
But alas, this Monday can and should be relaxing. Why might you ask? It’s National Relaxation Day! Yes, a day dedicated to slowing down, unwinding and relaxing.
So, just for today, don’t apologize for pressing that snooze button, forget that you still haven’t packed a single one of your boxes for school and leave your to-do list to do later. Take time today to de-stress and do something relaxing you love. All your everyday obligations will still be there for you tomorrow, ensuring the most Monday-est Tuesday ever.
