It’s nice if people can finally loosen up a little bit and just go out laugh at silliness. I mean, people take themselves way too seriously sometimes.

Larry the Cable Guy

Every day is a new lap in the rat race, and sometimes we get so caught up in that that we lace ourselves in a little tight. Things have to go ‘just so’ and if things get out of whack we start to lose our minds a little. Routine and precision are definitely useful traits in certain situations, but Loosen Up, Lighten Up Day reminds us that sometimes, we just have to let go and enjoy the chaos that life brings us with a smile.

History of Loosen Up, Lighten Up Day

Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.

Ferris Bueller

That’s right, we’re throwing out a quote from the man himself, Ferris Bueller. If you’ve never seen Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, it’s time to change that. The whole movie is a dedication to the concept of Loosening up, and Lightening up, and the amazing things it can bring into your life. Stress is an absolutely killer, and trying to control things that can rapidly get out of control is just another way of bringing it into your life. Instead, Loosen Up, Lighten Up Day reminds you that sometimes it’s ok to just let things slide.

No fear. No distractions. The ability to let that which does not matter truly slide.

Tyler Durden

Words to live by right there, and it’s the key to utter freedom and happiness. It doesn’t have to be so hard, it doesn’t have to be so complete, it doesn’t have to be so utter. Just open your hands and let it all go, even if just for one day.

How to Celebrate Loosen Up, Lighten Up Day

Well, it all starts with letting it all go, now doesn’t it? Start off the day by not worrying about being late to work if you must, just take things in your own time and let’em ding you if they must. Drive casually, don’t rush as you move through traffic, and if someone cuts you off, laugh it off, and continue about your day. Today is the day to let things that normally drive you up the wall, slide so that you can be free of that pain and that worry. Loosen Up, Lighten Up!
