Loosen Up Lighten Up Day (LULU Day)

When : This holiday is always held on November 14

 Are you feeling tense and edgy? Do you have troubles on the job? Have the kids got you frazzled? Maybe the upcoming holidays are causing you to freak out a little bit. Okay, the holidays have you more than "a little bit" tense. The stress of the holidays is certainly enough to get to anyone and everyone freaked out. All that tension, that worry and stress is not good for anyone. Today is Loosen Up Lighten Up Day. And, it sure has come at a good time. You can use this special day to do exactly what this day was created for....to loosen up and to lighten up.


 Stress and tension can come from an amazing array of things. It can be something small that just sets you off. Or, it could be some sort of problem that you are facing, or anything in between. Today is the perfect opportunity to spend some time mentally identifying the stressors that are currently in your life. Only after you have identified them, can you take steps to eliminate those nasty stressors, big and small. A big way to loosen up and lighten up, is to increase your sense of happiness. Think about things that make you happy and focus upon them. That includes surrounding yourself with upbeat, happy people, that will elevate your happiness and lighten up your day.


Remember what mom told you when went through trying times: "God will never give you more than you can handle". Mom's right. So, use Loosen Up Lighten Up Day to help you to live a happier and longer life. Undoubtedly, no one wants tension and stress in their lives. It leads to unhappiness. Tension and stress can cause health issues, too. It can cause high blood pressure, strokes and even give you a heart attack. We can't think of anything that's good about tension and stress.


Consequently, one quickly realizes there is plenty we can do to make the best of this day. First, don't take life and events so seriously. Then, take a two prong attack of eliminating stressors, and at the same time, adding things and people that make you happier.


Today's Theme Song: Bobby McFerrin  is right on as he sings in his song "Don't worry be happy". Now, that the attitude to strive for today.
