TODAY IS LOOSEN UP, LIGHTEN UP DAY
Every day is a new lap in the rat race, and sometimes we get so caught up in that that we lace ourselves in a little tight. Things have to go ‘just so’ and if things get out of whack we start to lose our minds a little. Routine and precision are definitely useful traits in certain situations, but Loosen Up, Lighten Up Day reminds us that sometimes, we just have to let go and enjoy the chaos that life brings us with a smile.
How to Celebrate Loosen Up, Lighten Up Day
Well, it all starts with letting it all go, now doesn’t it? Start off the day by not worrying about being late to work if you must, just take things in your own time and let’em ding you if they must. Drive casually, don’t rush as you move through traffic, and if someone cuts you off, laugh it off, and continue about your day. Today is the day to let things that normally drive you up the wall, slide so that you can be free of that pain and that worry. Loosen Up, Lighten Up!
