How often have you said, “I don’t have enough time”?
Today is your chance to fix that. It’s Leap Day, which means you get an extra day this year. How will you spend it?
You could spend it learning about a leap year. During Leap Years, we add a Leap Day, an extra – or intercalary – day on Feb. 29. Leap Years are needed to keep our calendar in alignment with the Earth’s revolutions around the sun.
Okay, so now you know about Leap Year and you still have almost your full 24 hours left. How to spend the day…
Rejuvenate yourself: Finally, you have time for you. A spa day may be in order. Or perhaps lunch with a friend you seldom get to see.
Donate time to charity. You could work at a soup kitchen. Drop off supplies at a woman’s shelter. You could change the life of a child in a developing country by sponsoring a child.
Take a vacation. Visit an area attraction. If you read this early enough, board the next plane to Disney World. For the first time in its history, the theme park will be open to guests for 24 consecutive hours for what the company calls “One More Disney Day.” The park will be open for 24 hours so guests can can advantage of every extra minute.
Do something from your bucket list.
Sleep. Too many of us say we don’t get enough sleep, so why not spend the day catching up?
If you’re still short of ideas, you could –
- Leap to conclusions
- Take off by leaps and bounds
- Play leap frog
Happy Leap Day!
