Every four years a certain day comes around: February 29th.
If for some odd reason you are not familiar with what this means – the extra day is added to keep the seasonal year in sync with the calendar year.
If you are born on a leap year you have the unlucky fortune to only see it only a quater of the time everyone else gets to celebrate their birthday. Womp Womp. On the upside, you are always MUCH younger!
I like to think about what I will do with this extra day.
Yes, there are those that will call me silly for thinking I have an additional day to accomplish things – it is only a number. But, in the span of a year, 2012 offers me an extra day to achieve awesome!
In relation to travel – there are many options to make use of this February 29th!! So, the following is a list of what you can do with your bonus day!
– For those of you planning a trip or vacation, you have an extra day this year to research, to find an awesome spot to visit or to discover great deals on vacation packages to make your trip less expensive!
– If you are currently on the road travelling, you have the opportunity to see an extra site, museum or place all together!
– For the foodie lovers, you have a whole extra day of EATING!!! Amazing right?! Indulge in something extra sweet and tasty!
– For those of you who are single travel affords you plenty of opportunities to meet people and flirt with the idea of romance without the worry of seeing the person at the grocery store back home should it not pan out. This year, you have a whole extra day to find the love of your life!
First, I’m going to wake up early in an effort to not waste this rarity.
I will take some time to stretch and meditate so that my body and mind can reap the benefits of this extra time.
I will spend a few hours reading – I need to catch up on my New Years Resolution of reading 12 books…
And I will make three calls to improve and advance my business. Why not right?
What about you? How will you spend your Feburary 29th?
