Overworked, underpaid, the cat’s moved in with a neighbour, generally stressed?
International Panic Day
is just what’s needed. Not to be confused with International Picnic Day – which albeit confusingly is celebrated on the same day – it’s the one day of the year when it’s (almost) considered okay to go postal on whatever it is that causes stress. Perhaps a better – and somewhat safer – idea would be to celebrate the day by taking a step back from the hustle and bustle of daily life. Make some waffles and refuse to share, retreat to a favourite coffee shop and spend the day with a long past due library book, lounge in a bath overflowing with bubbles, or spend quality time with a close friend. How about heading out to a local beauty spot and enjoying a picnic? Now that’s really confusing.
