Most three-day holiday weekends are just made for partying, but since you’ve been, well, laboring all year-long, why not spend your Labor Day weekend relaxing or doing something for your mind, body, and spirit–not go to work on Tuesday with an “I-partied-for-three-days-straight” hangover.
Especially constructed for bringing your cortisol levels down (ahhhh! stress!) while saving some dough (yay! cheap!), we’ve made a list of the Top Ten Ways You Can Relax On Labor Day Weekend. Some are obvious; others might require a little ingenuity but they will satisfy your urge for creativity!
10. Have A Cook-Off
Everyone will be having a barbecue, but not you, you will be having a cook-off! Is there something you are great at making? Host a throw-down! If all five of your friends claim to make the best guacamole ever, challenge them to a taste-off with family and friends as judges.
Having a throw-down is instant entertainment, it gives your friends and family a chance to taste something and vote on it (voting is always fun), and it’s a super cheap way to have a “potluck” style shindig. All that is required is a little creativity, some supplies for your awesome dish, and a scorecard.
Tip: Encourage your “challengers” dishes to be pre-prepared at home. Minimal cleaning!
