Did you know last Wednesday was Hammock Day? It’s always on July 22nd, but it’s difficult to enjoy a hammock on a Wednesday so I’d suggest today’s the day to climb in the hammock and relax. If you’re feeling especially energetic, you may want to take a book and read, otherwise, napping in the hammock will suffice.
“I’ve never understood activity holidays since we seem to have far too much activity in our daily lives as it is. Find a culture where loafing is the order of the day and where they don’t understand our need to be constantly doing things. Find somewhere you can have a hammock holiday.” ~Tom Hodgkinson
“My perfect day is constantly changing. Right now, it would be to lie around in a hammock reading with a portable phone and a table of food next to it. I would spend all day there. And that’s all that I can possibly come up with on the spur of the moment.” ~Eric Stoltz
“Your best ideas, those eureka moments that turn the world upside down, seldom come when you’re juggling emails, rushing to meet the 5 P.M. deadline or straining to make your voice heard in a high-stress meeting. They come when you’re walking the dog, soaking in the bath or swinging in a hammock.” ~Carl Honore
“I don’t care who you are, the pressure is on to go to the next task immediately. What happened to the days of hanging out in the hammock all afternoon?” ~James Brolin
“My goal involves a hammock, a vegetable patch, and a solar-powered house. And I hope to eventually get there.” ~Miranda Kerr
“Reading is a joy for my kids, and to swing in a hammock on a lazy summer day reading a good book just goes with summer.” ~Marcia Gay Harden
“I like to sit in my backyard. I go out on the hammock and sit in silence and kind of meditate. Nature is calming, and it’s nice to go out there and clear my head.” ~Devon Werkheiser
