Unplug your TV and your alarm clock, and don't charge your phone. National Day of Unplugging is a day to totally disconnect and recharge yourself.

Take a day to give back what you've probably picked! It takes just a few minutes, but it can make you're normal views a little bit brighter
1st Wednesday of the month

7th: National Beer Day
This day kind of speaks for itself. Celebrate accordingly.
22nd: Earth Day
There are so many ways to celebrate Earth Day. From picking up litter to planting a tree to simply taking your bike instead of your car for a day, just do one thing that will make our planet a better place.
Summer is just around the corner..FINALLY! And to celebrate the fact that consistent warmer weather is finally here start up that grill and enjoy the aromas.
22nd: Maritime Day
Yacht or paddle boat, this is a holiday to take anything you can with people you enjoy and just spend a day out on the water.
2nd: Leave The Office Early Day
The bosses may not like this, but we think this is one everyone can get on board with.. Leave work early and spend a longer weekend camping!
15th: Nature Photography Day
It's amazing how many pieces of art there are in the world that you can capture with the click of a button. Landscape or Cityscape there's so much to take in.
18th: National Go Fishing Day
Feeling the tug of a 5lb. bass or a huge Bluefin Tuna for the first time is a feeling of excitement a person never forgets. So whether you're with your buddies on the Caribbean or on a lake or river with your kids, grab a rod and make some memories today.
25th: National Catfish Day
Just can't get enough of that rod and reel? This is just one more reason to get out on the water and catch some dinner!

Again, with the relaxation! We're loving these! Take some time on this day to wonder somewhere where there's not a crowd, leave your phone at home, and just sit and enjoy the peace and quite.
4th Saturday of the month
Earl's got a lot of wisdom between the ears! If hunting is a hobby of yours get out the camo, clean those guns, and head out there.
14th: Motorcycle Ride Day
If you've been on a bike your whole life, you probably don't need a holiday to get you on those two wheels, but if you're just a weekend rider, here's your day!
21st: Flashlight Day
It only makes sense that National Flashlight Day is on the shortest day of the year. Even if you end up not needing a flashlight, this day is a great reminder to check those batteries and light bulbs to make sure it will work when you do end up needing them!
So whether you love hunting, fishing, or just need more excuses to sit around and clear your mind, now you have a legitimate reason to do so!
