Sip some tea and read your favorite book Tea has some seriously delicious soothing properties. Read some of our favorite teas to soothe your soul here.

Go on an easy walk in nature Walking is another great way to relax, and this way, you can do it while getting some exercise! We know that hiking in nature literally changes our brains, and there’s no better time to get outside and get moving than during the summer! Choose an easy path and spend time exploring. 8. Netflix and Chill — really Grab your partner (or curl up with your dog) and literally chill. Put on your favorite Netflix show or binge a new one– sometimes we all need a day in bed with nothing but our computer and a Netflix password. 9. Take a nap Any holiday we can celebrate by sleeping is a holiday we love. Seriously, sometimes your body just needs a break– and what better way to take a break than with a nap. Think happy thoughts and drift off to sleep. Don’t set the alarm. Just let yourself rest. 10. Do whatever makes you happy! The best way to really celebrate National Relaxation Day is to treat yourself! Do whatever that means to you. Whether it’s something on this list or another activity that makes you happy, relaxing is all about you and your body. Live your life! What are you doing to celebrate National Relaxation Day?
