I smiled when I saw this message in my inbox this morning. It brought me right back to my time at Mount Holyoke College when, on one bright and sunny fall day, the chapel bells would ring out signaling the cancellation of classes for a once-a-year tradition: Mountain Day.

The message today included this challenge: “Although you may not be able to join President Pasquerella, and the MHC community for a noon ice cream celebration, you can still evoke the unexpected freedom of Mountain Day: give yourself an unscheduled day off, open your windows, get out of the house or your office for a walk, eat ice cream for lunch, or call a classmate to reminisce.

I’ve already opened my windows and will get out of my office for a walk. What unexpected freedom can you reward yourself with today?
