Today is National Relaxation Day.  Hold the phone, take a nap, go fishing.  August 15 is set aside to get people to relax and try to reduce stress in their lives.  I don't know about you, but it seems like this deserves more than just one day!

If you are stressed at work or in your life, a simple way to unwind is to just find a quiet place where you can turn off your smartphone and other electronic slavery devices and just breathe deep for a little while.  If you can do with outdoors, even better.

I try to take a nap before I come to work every day.  Even if it's only 20 minutes, it seems to help.  It's something we should all strive for, a little peace in our lives every day.  Here's hoping that you find some!

Here's a few more good ideas on how to observe this important day:
