It’s Friday, so Just Relax™

“It is requisite for the relaxation of the mind that we make use, from time to time, of playful deeds and jokes”

-St. Thomas Aquinas

Even saints know how important it is to step away from seriousness and pull a few pranks. Admittedly, Aquinas was not well-known for tomfoolery. He was a 1200s friar and priest who earned a reputation as a legendary philosopher and theologian. In many ways that makes his recommendation even more remarkable. Think of it, when was the last time you did “playful deeds and jokes”? April Fool’s? If that’s the only day in the year you’re using for shenanigans then there’s not nearly enough silliness in your life. Make a window of time in your week to get up to a bit of lighthearted mischief and relax your brain. Wearing a brown robe and trimming your hair into a tonsure are optional.

Time to relax

Enjoy your weekend 🙂
