In our last post, we gave you a number of excuses you can use to blow the day off work. You have had it up to your chin and desperately need a day to yourself away from work. We know just how you feel.

With a good excuse and a little luck, you managed to get a day off, good for you. But now you have to decide what to do. If you want to hide under the covers in your bed and watch Netflix all day, that is your prerogative. However, your day would be better spent if you actually went out and did something.

It’s totally up to you, really. You can splurge on Netflix whenever, but it is a rare occasion you get a day off in the middle of the week and can do anything you wish. If you are having a frozen brain moment and can’t think of anything to do, your Orlando mobile shredding services can help.

Leave Town

When you have a day off, you want to be as far from the office as possible, so you need to leave town. Vacations, even if they are for only one day and held in the neighboring town, are a great way to re-energize your life and connect with people other than the IT guy.

While you are vacationing in the neighboring town, you can experience their culture, cuisine, and shop to your heart’s content. We hear that Applebee’s is a pretty happening place and you can spend the afternoon a the mall.

Hang With Some Friends

In all likelihood, you have any number of friends you probably haven’t seen face-to-face in a long time. In this age of technology and social media, keeping track of your friends means texting them on their birthday and liking their posts on Facebook.

It fine time you actually hooked up with your friends to hang out and have a jolly good time. You could sit around your favorite brewpub and talk about the excuses you use to get out of work.

Read a Book

You might think you do an awful lot of reading ad it is. That’s probably true, but we have some new for you: Reading Facebook posts and Yahoo News isn’t real reading, you need to seriously mix in a book.

Head to the bookstore or library and find a book, a real book with pages, words, character development and a plot. When you get home, brew yourself some coffee or tea and enjoy the day escaping between the pages of a good book.

Spend the Day in Bed with Your Spouse

Convince your wife to take the day off and spend all day in bed. We are willing to guess that you two won’t be too terribly bored.

Start a Hobby

There has to be something that holds your interest.We don’t expect you to go out and start collecting stamps, but there must be something you want to do. You could start collecting vinyl records again, they are making a comeback you know. You could start a blog, you have always had a knack for the written word. Or you could start a death metal band.

Break out that bass guitar, give your buds from high school a call and get the band back together. Spend your day off thinking up cool names for your death metal band like Heaving Mildew or The Devil’s Troubled Desperados.

Go to the Spa

There is nothing wrong with spending the day getting a manicure, pedicure, facial and massage. In fact, your looking a little rough and could probably benefit from the treatments. And you got to know that a massage will leave you relaxed and rejuvenated.

Start a Project

There are any number of projects around the house that need to be started and finished. We aren’t saying you need to redesign and remodel the kitchen, but you could use a new sink and faucet in the master bathroom.

There are any number of things around the house that need some attention. Even if you only get two or three things accomplished on your day off, you will feel better about your home and about yourself.
