Do you sometimes feel like not doing anything? Yes, we all feel this especially when we are stressed and tired. Due to our work, we are always busy and doing something most of the time. From an 8 hour shift at work (even including overtime) and also transportation time, all we can do back at home is to take a shower, change clothes, eat, and prepare for the next day. There is hardly any time for us to do some relaxation activities. But fortunately for you, we celebrate the Lazy Day every 10th of August each year. This day gives us an opportunity to relax in our bed or hammocks and do some relaxing activities like reading.
What is Lazy Day
The Lazy Day is primarily celebrated in the United States every August 10 of the year. But more and more countries are now celebrating this holiday as well these days. During this day, people take a break from doing their daily work and chores where they can spend the day doing absolutely nothing productive at all. This is the perfect day to become a loafer, a couch potato, or a slacker.
