National No Housework Day
This April 7th, take a break from all the housework! Whether you love doing your own home or not it’s an international day to sit back and relax listening as well as watching TV. Eat something yummy while taking in some restful time without worrying about making beds/washing dishes etc., just spend this No Housework Day doing anything but chores around the house.
Why No Housework Day?
Women have been doing all of the housework for centuries, but with modern technology, it still feels like a herculean task.
A lot has changed since women were solely responsible for keeping their homes clean and tidy before men left to go work in factories or offices during what we know today as “the industrial revolution.” Nowadays people generally don’t worry about cleaning because there are electric gadgets that can do everything from vacuuming floors (and other surfaces) thoroughly – without even needing much dirt–to washing windows safely so you never see another streak!
We all know housework is a tedious task, but it’s good to take some time off from doing them every day. Unless you’re really into scrubbing floors and washing dishes (or vice versa), don’t worry about postponed tasks like these! Enjoy yourself while getting mentally/physically relaxed without feeling guilty or stressed out – just go with the flow today 🙂
When you’re feeling overwhelmed with the housework, don’t forget to take care of yourself! It doesn’t mean that your necessary sanitary needs are neglected but feel free to leave dishes in the sink; toys on the floor (or multicolored rug); cluttered books table & clothes unfolded. Schedule deep cleaning for another day or use this as an opportunity to catch up on things like laundry- maybe even spring clean everything at once?!
You deserve a day off from your hectic life! So take some time today to relax and rejuvenate yourself. Put on that favorite song or drink an ice-cream cone as you see fit–whatever makes sense for YOU personally 🙂
How Can We Observe National No Housework Day:
Do Nothing Related To Housework!
housework is no fun? Why not take the day off and do nothing but relax! You deserve it after all that hard work. All those dishes, clothes, or toys can wait until tomorrow when you’re refreshed – let’s enjoy our breakfast in peace before starting another busy schedule again 🙂
Go out with family or friends
Housework doesn’t have to be a chore! Instead of working on your laundry or dishes, use the time dedicated to these tasks as an opportunity to do something fun with friends and family. You could go window shopping at one store while watching another movie together in theaters if you’re feeling adventurous this weekend – there are so many options available that will fit everyone’s needs perfectly (and depending on where they live).
Enjoy a hobby
If you are an artist, use the time to work on your strokes and shades! We all must have a hobby. If it’s painting or playing music – do both of those things because they will improve how well-rounded our lives can be when completing tasks at home alone while watching TV without children around (yikes!). What about crafting? Baking delicious treats like cookies for instance…or even sewing clothes from fabric bought at H&M ? The possibilities are endless!
Learn something new
The internet is an almost infinite resource for learning new things. You can use your housework hours to learn about something that will make you more productive at home and work, or simply explore the many unknowns out there!
Enjoy extra TV hours
Can’t get enough of your favorite TV shows? It’s time to curl up on the couch with plenty of snacks and let them binge!
