Cancel your plans, have breakfast for dinner, and get ready to de-stress by living spontaneously. This Monday, March 22, is National Goof Off Day. The point of this holiday is to brush off responsibility and let loose to relieve a bit of weekly anxiety. And it happens to fall on a Monday this year, which makes it the best possible day to call in "sick" and get silly.
At Olympus Las Colinas, we're here for it all. Show us how you spend your day goofing off! Residents can send their photos to our office email, and we'll choose the goofiest picture for a prize. If you're having trouble thinking of some creative ways to accomplish your goal – of accomplishing nothing – here a few ideas for mindless fun.
Try Something New
Today is the day. If you've never had deep-fried snails before, do it. If you've been wanting to learn how to skateboard, it's time to hit the pavement. Have you been on a Gondola adventure through the Mandalay Canals? Make a memory by getting out of your comfort zone and trying something different than your regular routine.
Do What You Love
Instead of getting out, stay in. Make your childhood comfort food of Cup Noodles and sit on the couch watching cartoons. Fill your day with things you love but haven't done – or eaten – in a while.
National Goof Off Day is a great excuse to schedule some self-care. Get a pedicure, a massage, or whatever helps you relax. Plan a spa day for a little you-time. Allow yourself the day to be selfish and refill your metaphorical cup.
One whole day to complete one whole TV season. Or a whole book. Or a whole video game? If your loved ones have been bugging you to consume a popular media story, now is the perfect time to hit two birds with one stone. You can finally see what the hype is about and get your friends off your back.
When was the last time you just took a nice long nap, without stress trying to overtake your quiet time? Responsibility, deadlines, bills, appointments ... Let them all drift away. Those are future you problems. Today is just about the blissful nothingness behind your eyelids. Nap as long as you want. The world can wait.
We can't wait to see how you choose to spend National Goof Off Day. Residents, send those photos over to our office email, and the Olympus Las Colinas team will be in touch with the prize winner. For more great ways to de-stress, read the Olympus Las Colinas blog.
