Do you remember how you used to celebrate your birthday as a kid? You looked forward to it. You counted down the days. You had a party. So why is it that when you become an adult, you start writing it off, as just another day?
I used to be the same, and then one year, I started working for a company that included one personal holiday in their holiday benefits, so “Naturally,” I made my birthday a “Holiday” that year.
Every year, I take my Birthday off. I gift myself at least one full day to spend it doing whatever I want - and I think everyone should do the same!
Believe it or not, I’ve only worked my birthday once, maybe twice since. (I remember the first exception because I had started a new job and an important Client meeting was already scheduled for that Thursday - I took Friday off instead!)
Your Birthday Should be Holiday! YOU ARE WORTH CELEBRATING!
Spend the day relaxing at spa. Spurge on a fancy meal at your favorite restaurant. Soak in the sunshine at the beach. Get yourself a gift. Sleep in. Have a party.
Take Your Birthday Off & Do What Every You Want!

In fact, I engineered a whole “NATurally Powered Birthday System!”
Depending what day your Birthday falls on, positively power it up like this:
Monday or Friday:
