June 3rd is Repeat Day! June 3rd is Repeat Day! June 3rd is Repeat Day!

Repeat Day is celebrated on June 3rd, and it's the perfect time to plan another spa session, make a reservation at that particular restaurant, or even find a new activity you'd like to repeat. Repetition is a wonderful thing. Especially when it involves an activity we love or just indulge in a simple hobby.

History of Repeat Day

Repetition is an important element in everyday life. Daily activities give us a sense of stability and direction. We may not think about it as much, but repetition is also a good example of how our individual tastes are structured. Grab your favorite ice cream: the first encounter with that taste is the starting point of a love affair that manifests itself through repetition. Case and point, the difficulty of choosing another flavor had faced with that difficult decision.

Art has also used repetition as the driving force behind powerful narratives. The most common example is the movie “Groundhog Day,” in which a character finds himself confusingly repeating the same day over and over. Other movies relating repetition and time loops include “Run, Lola, Run” and “Palm Springs”.

But there is more to it than seeing with the eyes. Sanford Meisner who was an actor and teacher developed his acting technique thanks to the repetition of words between performers. By repeating the same word over and over, the literal meaning of the word loses its importance and what remains is the underlying emotion of the moment between the performers.

Some facts about Repetition

  • Bart Simpson knows a lot about it

'Write it 100 times' is an archaic school punishment - we've seen Bart do it over 600 times.

  • A repeating record that you don't want to break

Roy Cleveland Sullivan was struck by lightning seven times however he still survived after all.

  • Some people have gone too far

A man in Canada has just started watching Christopher Nolan's last film "Tenet" 120 times.

  • It is a rhetorical device

Repetition is a rhetorical device in literature that involves repeating a word in a short space.

  • Repetition increases trust

Studies have found that when people hear a statement twice, they are more likely to believe it to be true than when they hear it only once.

Why we love Repeat Day

  • Habits are hard to die

We love this day because it reminds us that we shouldn't do things over and over again that are hard for us to give up. Like drinking coffee first thing in the morning or having to touch the doorknob twice before leaving the house.

  • It can make us improve some things

When it comes to practicing a new skill, there's nothing like repetition to help us master that skill. We all remember having to play the same song over and over in music class until we perfected it!

  • Some things are worth repeating

Christmas, watch "Star Wars" for the millionth time, visit your neighborhood weekly farmers market, buy your favorite birthday cake and even get your hair done - here's everything! However, we can't wait to do again. And we live for the fact that we know they will repeat themselves.

How to celebrate Repeat Day

What do you find yourself repeating throughout the day? Are there phrases you say or act on? Some of us retrace our steps throughout the day. Others repeat the same movements. Are there any traditions at this time of year that you repeat? Here are some other ideas to celebrate the day:

  • Say “thank you” twice instead of once each time.
  • Wrap the same gift, twice.
  • Call your mom twice and tell her the same thing on the second phone call.
  • Repeat your child's name until they respond to you.
  • Re-read your email twice times.
  • Choose and listen to your favorite song twice and do not forget singing along both times.
  • Download and print this Repeating Circle coloring page. Maybe even do it twice.
