Homework can be stressful, whether you are still in school or not. No one likes to do homework every day. In fact, it can be so stressful that it can hinder rather than improve education. There is No homework day to save you from these long hours. It just gives you an excuse to do whatever you want. Let’s learn more about the history of No Homework Day and how to celebrate this day.
Who made That?
Created by Thomas and Ruth Roy of Wellcome.com, No Homework Day is designed to get students focused on activities other than homework. Parents should not give their children any work on this day and the school should consider not assigning homework on that day.
Homework can be stressful:
According to some studies on the subject, homework can be stressful and detrimental to learning. It can use any free time for other activities and makes it difficult to see the importance of learning. Duke University professors suggest that the 10-minute rule should apply to homework.
They also feel that homework should be different for each student. Homework day is not about removing homework completely from the picture, it’s about taking a step back and relaxing. The ultimate goal of No Homework Day is to get the kids to do what they want.
No Homework Day encourages parents and students to take a day off from homework so they can do whatever they want. Whether that means sleeping, reading a good novel, creating art, playing sports, or any other hobby/activity.
This is the perfect excuse to work whenever you want. Because while homework can be a useful learning tool, doing homework for the sake of new homework only works. Homework can be stressful, so a break from homework is well worth it. It allows people to explore their lives and fulfill their desires.
How to make the best use of this day:
Make the most of today’s time to find the interest you missed because of school, or just go out and have a good time.

You can just sleep, watch movies, and relax because you deserve it. Share this holiday with friends and family and help them.
