National No Housework Day

National No Housework Day

Imagine that you have been working hard all day, and that you are now exhausted. Every traffic light appears to be conspiring to turn green. The road isn’t kind. Your “shortcut” turned out to be a detour, which diverted you fifteen minutes further. You reach the door and swing it open. You are now at home, Home Sweet Home.

Realization sets in, and you realize that you have not had the opportunity to clean up after a weekend. Then, you realize that you’ve been putting off cleaning the dishes for weeks.

Then, a sweeter realization hits you in the back of your head: It’s National No Housework Day! National No Housework Day gives you the chance to let go of all your worries and let tomorrow’s dishes take care of themselves.

It’s time for you to listen! The tedious and often painful chore of housework is something that nearly everyone can relate to. There are a few people who enjoy housework. But they shouldn’t be trusted.

Although it is true that many things have changed in the modern world, there are still some great differences. You should remember that floors in some regions did not have carpets or rugs. They were made from dirt. To help with the dust and mess of daily life, rushes were used to make piles.

Proper brooms weren’t available back then so it was difficult to sweep. They were made from ash handles and birch twigs, with strips of willow bark at one end. It worked! But it was hard work to make the broom.

What if there were no vacuum cleaners? Would you be forced to take your rugs out and hang them in the sun, if there was sun, and then beat them with a stick to clean them?

Many people today have a variety of handy appliances that can help clean their homes. Nowadays, most people don’t need to bring water into the house to wash dishes. Yet, housework remains one of the most dangerous drudgeries in the modern world.

It is important to remember, however, that people can get sick from it anytime today.

National No Housework Day was established with this goal in mind: to remind everyone that every person deserves the chance to relax in their happy, cluttered home.

It’s a day for no housework, and it is definitely worth celebrating! These ideas will help you enjoy the day without worrying about the house.

It is a great way to avoid the housework becoming too much. Enjoy the outdoors and enjoy nature. Take off your shoes and walk barefoot on the grass. You will be absorbing positive electrical charges.

Go on a hike. You can listen to the birds sing and then whistle or sing back at them. You can also lie on the grass or in a hammock and just stare up at the sky. You can make shapes out of the clouds. Do whatever keeps your mind off of the chores and housework at home. They will be there later.

Go bowling. Drop by the arcade. Take a relaxing massage. Do some shopping that is completely unnecessary. You can take a break. Play a boardgame. Do a crossword puzzle. You can eat out (where someone else will clean up). You can do something completely silly, whimsical or frivolous. It doesn’t matter what you do, just have fun and relax while avoiding all the mess at home.

This day should give you some time and the weather may not be ideal for outside activities. Consider watching a movie that portrays comedy or tragedy! Housework and domestic goddesses
