Perhaps working from home means you already celebrate your own 4th of July style independence day every day of the year!
But while your friends, family or colleagues in traditional jobs probably take time off for holidays like the 4th of July, you might find yourself at home, working, or perhaps, just not invited to join in the festivities.
But that’s okay! We’ve put together some fun ways you can still have fun while putting in a hard day’s work at the (home) office.
Brush up on your history
Did you know that in the pre-revolutionary years, colonists celebrated the king’s birthday with bell ringing and bonfires. This tradition carried on after the Declaration of Independence and fireworks are still commonly used right across the United States to celebrate 4th of July today. A little time on YouTube and Google will take your US history knowledge to the next level, and everyone will want you on their table at the next trivia night. Get to it.
Have a Barbecue/Grill Lunch
Throw your own party and invite along the neighbours, or even just your dog. It’s summer time in the US and that’s the perfect excuse to fire up the grill. Plus, the leftovers make for great quick lunches for the rest of the working week. Winning!
Watch ALL of the Fireworks
And we mean all of them! Yes, you could head outside to watch your local 4th of July display, or, you could embrace your virtual prowess and live stream all the best fireworks displays from right across the nation. The best bit – you can turn down the volume, and, you don’t even have to get out of your pyjamas. Umm, yes!
Go Low Key, If You Want
Working from home gives you the freedom to paint your face (or your entire body) red, white and blue, if you want to. But hey, if you’re not feeling like putting on a patriotic display today, that’s okay too. You can hide away from it all without the guilt trip, and use the time to catch up on your to do-list and get ahead on important projects and pressing deadlines. After all, it’s a day about freedom right?
Look for a New Job
Maybe you’ve got the day off and you’re thinking of taking your career in a new direction? After a better work-life balance? Well this is the perfect time to brush up your CV and search for a remote job. These are just a few fun ways to celebrate the 4th of July when you work from home.
