How to Make The Most Of Your Labor Day

Labor Day is coming up in about a month. So, FreshJax is here to show you the steps you need to take to make the most of your Labor Day.

What is Labor Day all about?Ā 

Labor Day is celebrated on the first Monday of September every year. It is a day that people use to celebrate all of their hard work by, well, not working. It is a day to relax and enjoy the fruits of our labor.Ā 

The origin of Labor Day is quite interesting. In the 1800s, manufacturing workers grew tired of having 60-70 hour work weeks. They wanted shorter shifts and more days off. So what did they do to achieve this? Well, in New York City, in 1882, union workers decided to create labor day, at least in a sense. Unfortunately, neither the government or any businesses recognized this as a holiday and expected all employees to show up for work. So how did they respond to this? They went on strike and held a parade in the city. Eventually, from this, Labor Day was created as an official holiday.

Fortunately, most of us won't have to go on strike to get Labor Day off this year, and FreshJax is here to show you the steps you need to take to make the most of it.

Sleep In

This one should be a no brainer. If you have trouble sleeping when the sun is up, grab some blackout curtains or wear an eye mask. You don't need to make any plans for Labor Day. Just wake up when you feel like it and enjoy your schedule-free day.Ā 

Cumin is an excellent remedy for insomnia. Find out which FreshJax Spice Blends contain cumin HERE.


Get Together With Friends and FamilyĀ 

We often spend so much time working that we don't have time to see all of our friends and family. This Labor Day, see if you can reach out to those friends and family that you don't get to see very much. Unless of course, you have a good reason for not wanting to see them very much.Ā 


Grill Out

You can grill up some burgers, ribs, veggies, or an endless number of other options. Whatever you choose, FreshJax is by your side. Try out some delicious flavors with our Smoked and Grilling 5 packs. Or you could grab a bottle of our new Keto Chophouse Steak Seasoning.Ā 

If you are feeling adventurous, you could give our wood grilling planks a shot. Find out how easy they are to use HERE.



This is by far the most important step you need to take to have a great Labor Day. Spend some time just sitting by the pool or curl up on the couch. Don't worry about what you have going on the rest of the week. Just stay in the present and let your mind be at ease. Remember, Labor Day is about appreciating all the hard work you have already done.
