Labor Day: History and Relaxation

shutterstock_266689532

Labor Day: History and Relaxation

Labor Day, or originally referred to as “the workingmen’s holiday”, can first be traced back to a parade in New York City on Tuesday, September 5th, 1882. In a time where working conditions were far from great and employees were fed up, Congress could see tensions rising and moved forward with passing a piece of legislation that made the first Monday of every September a day to recognize workers. The holiday originally included street parades followed by a festival, as well as speeches from prominent speakers. The holiday has since changed in some ways, but the meaning behind it still remains to this day. It is a day to celebrate working men and women and give them a well-deserved break. So, take the time to relax this Labor Day weekend—you’ve earned it.

 

Need some ideas to unwind? Here are some relaxation tips you can take with you even after Labor Day is done.
1.) Find time in your off-peak times to take a break or vacation
If you know a certain time of year is busier for you, then do not choose that time of year to take off. Instead, consider scheduling time after your busy season to take a vacation.
2.) Disconnect every once in a while
Many people find it hard to disconnect in today’s world, but it can be very fulfilling and destressing to shut your electronics down and live in the moment.
3.) Get regular exercise
Exercise is a proven stress reliever. If you don’t necessarily like regular cardio or weights, try yoga! Yoga is a great way to relax and get a good workout at the same time. When people think of yoga, meditation is something else that can come to mind. Try meditation exercises when you are overly stressed.
4.) Get outside
Fresh air and sunshine are great ways to instantly make your stress melt away. Take a break during the day to sit outside and enjoy the warm weather!
5.) Try Aromatherapy
Believe it or not, some people can greatly reduce stress with aromatherapy. Invest in some essential oils. Try them with a diffuser or simply put some on your wrists. Lavender, rosemary, and clary sage are just three essential oils that are said to help relieve stress.

Happy Thanksgiving

Happy-Thanksgiving-From-Inlanta-Mortgage

Happy Thanksgiving!

How much do you know about Thanksgiving? It may have all started with a 3-day festival of hunting and feasting in celebration of the pilgrims first successful harvest almost 400 years ago, but we bet there are a few things you didn’t know. Here are some fun facts on Thanksgiving:

  • The very first Thanksgiving menu included venison – not turkey, pumpkin pie, or mashed potatoes!
  • Abraham Lincoln proclaimed Thanksgiving an official holiday in 1863 during the Civil War – hundreds of years after the Pilgrims first feasted with the Wampanoag Indians.
  • In 1989, George Bush began the tradition of pardoning one turkey each year.
  • On average, about 280 million turkeys are sold for Thanksgiving feasts. Californians consume more turkey than any other state.
  • On average 50 million pumpkin pies are eaten during Thanksgiving.
  • Turkeys can’t see very well in the dark.
  • Benjamin Franklin wanted the turkey to be the national bird of the United States.

From all of us at Inlanta Mortgage, we hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday!

Have a Safe & Happy 4th of July

4th-of-July

Independence Day

The Fourth of July, or Independence Day, is a federal holiday that celebrates the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776. In America, we celebrate this glorious day with picnics, barbecues, fireworks and the good ole red, white and blue. Whatever way you celebrate, we wish you safety and happiness.

Safety Tips 4th of July

With more than 35 million people traveling over the 4th of July weekend, it pays to plan extra time for travel and consider the following safety tips:

  • Check vehicle tires (including spare) and fluid levels before any road trip.
  • Pack an emergency kit with flashlight, jumper cables, water, sunscreen, and commonly used tools
  • Stay focused – No texting and take breaks if you feel drowsy. Do not drink and drive.
  • Barbecue in your plans? Remember to keep food items properly chilled or heated, covered, and avoid cross contamination with raw meats.
  • Swimming? Always swim with a buddy and never leave children in water unattended.

Other great safety resources include the American Red Cross, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Fun Facts 4th of July

  • “Americans began observing the Fourth of July as early as 1777, when the first-ever major celebration in Philadelphia included a parade, a thirteen-shot cannon salute and fireworks, but Congress didn’t make it official until 1870, when it was part of a bill passed to recognize major state holidays at a federal level — like Independence Day, Christmas and New Year’s Day,” according to TIME magazine.
  • Also according to TIME magazine, July Fourth is the “biggest hot dog holiday of the year.” Americans reportedly consuming about 155 million of them on Independence Day alone.
  • According to the American Pyrotechnics Association, more than 14,000 fireworks displays light up skies across the country on July 4. Most fireworks stores spend 11 months of the year planning for the holiday, which accounts for roughly 75 percent of the industry’s yearly revenue. Congress first authorized the use of fireworks for Independence Day celebrations on July 4, 1777, but the tradition truly stems from the mid-19th century when explosives leftover from war were set off to celebrate the day.(Source: Heavy.com)
