Overworked? Sign up for National Slacker Day

LONDON (Reuters) - Britain's workers are being urged to think of their health and take it easy with a new campaign for a National Slacker Day on August 23.

With stressed-out British employees working the longest hours in Europe, the campaign, launched by a clothing and record company Oncus, wants people to recognise the value of rest and relaxation outside the workplace.

"It is vital to understand the importance of doing nothing. Slacking is a necessity," actor and writer Simon Pegg, a supporter of the National Slacker Day, said in a statement.

"How can you possibly comprehend the value of your own hectic endeavour if you don't occasionally put your feet up and experience a state of complete calm."

The campaigners say they want to contact as many people in Britain as possible and urge them -- for the sake of their health -- to stay in bed on August 23 and enjoy a guilt-free day of relaxation and de-stress.

Supporters of the campaign can sign a petition for National Slacker Day at www.slackerday.com
