Believe it or not, my calendar claims that March 22 is National Goof Off Day! How fun is that! It’s been sanctioned by someone, but I don’t recommend trying to get away with goofing off if you A) have to report to a supervisor at work, B) have a small child who depends on you for meals, transportation, or general care, or B) have any life-or-death situation that requires you to NOT goof off.
But that doesn’t mean you can’t goof off at all. If you have some freedom or even a few spare minutes in your day, you might take advantage of the holiday. I think it’s actually good for you to goof off every once in a while. So let’s think of some great ways to goof off.
Here are a few ways I can think of:
• Turn off the ringer on your phone and settle down with a good book by your favorite author.
• Close the shades, blinds and curtains, grab a blanket and pillow, and take a nap on the sofa.
• Go to your favorite park or beach and relax with nature.
