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.

Have a safe and fun Labor Day weekend!

Labor Day is observed on the first Monday in September and pays tribute to the contributions and achievements of American workers. It also symbolizes the end of summer for many Americans.

Labor Day weekend is also one of the busiest travel weekends of the year. If you have travel plans this weekend here are a few tips to ensure safe and healthy travels:

Vehicle Preparations

The last thing you want on Labor Day weekend is a car that breaks down on the side of the road! Before you embark on your road adventure check all of your fluids including oil, radiator, and windshield wiper fluid. Although the plan is not to use it – make sure you have a car emergency kit. Your emergency kit should include at minimum jumper cables, flashlight, basic tool kit, duct tape, and an emergency stop sign. Also make sure you have a first-aid kit, a bottle of water, a blanket, and something healthy to tide you over in case you are stranded.

Safe Driving

Most accidents are caused by losing concentration or ignoring the risks big trucks pose on our road ways. To maintain optimum concentration levels avoid driving if you are tired, feel sick, or drank alcohol. Steer clear of big trucks – big trucks have diminished brake times due to their weight and often have several blind spots. Remember that if you can’t see a trucker’s mirror, the trucker can’t see you either.

Timing Your Trip

If you can, leave early. While this is not possible for most of us, be especially careful and alert during peak driving times. Most people will be on the roads between 4pm and 10pm. If you can leave earlier or postpone your travels to avoid these times, you will be in better shape. It is also a good idea to check online before you leave to see if the roads you intend to take are undergoing repairs or scheduled lane changes. This will allow you to research alternate routes saving you the headache and hassle.

Have Fun!

What’s the rush? Usually we want to arrive at our destinations as fast as possible. But what if you had the chance to see the World’s Biggest Ball of Twine? Are you passing by Darwin, Minnesota or Cawker City, Kansas? Both locales boast the largest ball of twine, one built by a single person and one by a community. Here are a few more of the U.S.A.’s Weirdest Roadside Attractions to look out for on your travels:

World’s Largest Fish, Hayward, Wisconsin

Live Mermaid Show, Spring Hill, Florida

World’s Tallest Gnome, Kerhonkson, New York

Cadillac Ranch, Amarillo, Texas

Whatever you weekend plans, we hope you have a safe and fun weekend!
