Labor Day Recharge

Today is Labor Day in North America.

Labor Day is an annual national holiday developed over 100 years ago as a tribute to the worker. It is generally less political than May Day, and more a day to renew yourself away from work.

Go away from the computer.

Walk or bike or skate outdoors nearby to somewhere green. Do real activity that you love. Doesn't have to be for long. Eat a piece of fruit instead of candy and soda. Lie with a book and learn something wonderful.
