The buzz about Matthew Broderick’s Honda ad channeling his character Ferris Bueller made me giddy. After all, I am a child of the 80s.
Most of my friends and I have fond memories of Ferris Bueller’s Day Off – where Ferris, his girlfriend and his best friend take the day off from school to frolic in Chicago. In the new ad, Broderick takes a day off just like his famous character.
As an adult, I see the movie as a good reminder of how we all need to take a day off now and again. We live in this crazy, multi-tasking world where we’re constantly bombarded by emails, phone calls, work, bills, traffic and other things that constantly drain our energy and resources.
To recover from the stress of our daily lives, we need to have regular regimen of rest. When you leave vacation time on the table, it’s not a badge of honor. We need rest to renew our spirits, our bodies and our minds. After all, even God rested on the seventh day.
When you’re feeling tired and cranky and need some rest, tap into your inner Ferris Bueller and take the day off. Bom bom chickah chickah.
