The end of the summer is upon us. For some, it’s a sad time when the kids go back to school and the trips to tropical destinations come to a close until next year, and for others it’s a time to welcome the fall season and pull out the scarves and boots they’ve been waiting months to wear again. Either way, Labor Day is here and it marks the last weekend of the summer. But it also is a tribute to the hard work and contributions you have made all year. You did it! Let’s celebrate the fruits of your labor, and close this summer chapter with a bang!
Here are a few ways to revel in your Labor Day fun:
Have a BBQ with friends and family: Call up and invite those you want to spend time with over for a healthy BBQ and outdoor activity day.
Plan a day at the beach: Take in your last moments basking in the sun, while the kids build sand castles.
Go on a shopping spree: Sometimes a new wardrobe is a great way to feel refreshed. Get yourself and your kids some new looks for this coming fall season and school year.
Get pampered at the spa: You work hard all year; this day is all about you! Let someone else take care of you, and go for that facial and massage option at the spa. Relax, you have zero responsibilities today.
Check out your local Labor Day Parade: Look for a local listing of when and where your area’s Labor Day Parade will be, and celebrate the day with your neighborhood.
Go camping: Take some time to get out in nature, clear your head and your lungs with some fresh air. Getting away from distraction will allow you to disconnect and reconnect with your own self.
Plan a hike and picnic at the top: Pack a few snacks to enjoy at the summit of a nice hike. Take a break, and enjoy with your significant other.
Stay home: You don’t always have to leave the house to have fun. Stay home, spend some time gardening or in the yard, prepare a healthy meal with your family, and enjoy going with the flow!
Lastly, take some time to respect everyone else that works hard too! Let’s not forget why we have Labor Day as a federal holiday. Thank your coworkers, your supervisors, your mailman, everyone for their hard work too. Enjoy your day off, do something fun and make it count!
