Your taxes are due soon. Chances are that you are one of the millions of people who waited until the last minute to file, but that’s ok. Now that your taxes have been completed and your payments have been sent in the mail, it’s time to take a breath and treat yourself. Listed below are just a few ideas to help you unwind after tax stress.
4 Tax Day Relaxation Tips
Get Some Tax Day Discounts
Companies know that we’re stressed during tax season, that’s why so many offer special deals on Tax Day. For instance, Bruegger’s Bagels offers their Big Bagel Bundle (13 bagels and 2 tubs of cream cheese) for the discounted price of $10.40 (Get it? 1040). There’s also Kona Ice. The company will be handing out free shaved ice from their trucks on Tax Day, which they call “National Chill Out Day.” Chili’s, Firehouse Subs, Quizno’s, and other companies have discounts as well. So, do your research and go get some deals.
Get a Free Massage
A massage can help you reduce stress. But a free message reduces tension in your body and your bank account. Fortunately, HydroMassage and Planet Fitness are here to help. From April 14th through April 21st they are running a free message promotion. With the Free HydroMassage Experience coupon, you can go to a participating Planet Fitness location and relax in one of their lux message beds or lounge chairs.
