Since 1985, National Relaxation Day is held annually on the 15th August in the USA. This was a great idea by a nine year old, Sean Moeller from Michigan.
Nowadays, with thanks to social media platforms such as Twitter, Facebook and Instagram, many people around the world celebrate National Relaxation Day and more recently, International Relaxation Day. The National Academy of Relaxation supports International Relaxation Day.
International Relaxation Day is an opportunity to reflect on the importance of relaxation and how people, families, organisations and communities can learn about applying relaxation.
