Happy National Hammock Day!

Hammocks make great camping gifts!

National Hammock Day exists and you should celebrate it!

We’re not sure of the origin of the all-important National Hammock Day which occurs on the 22nd of July every year.

What we do know is that R & R is not only fun, but it is necessary.

Take time to recharge your body whether it be on a camping trip or in your own backyard by relaxing in a comfortable hammock!

#4 Listen to your favorite music.

Get transported without moving an inch by listening to your favorite music!

I recommend using a portable bluetooth speaker with hi-quality sound … but … be sure to choose your music wisely because it will set the tone for your day!

National Hammock Day is all about relaxing but if you want to rock out while celebrating the day … go for it!

#5 Dive into an inspirational book.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics report published by the U.S. Department of Labor, the average American spends about 5 hours of leisure and sports time on an average day and a measly 17 minutes of that is spent relaxing and thinking!

That tells me we need more than one National Hammock Day per year!
