National Relaxation Day – August 15!

What did you do to relax today?

Our brains and bodies thrive when we give them relaxation breaks!

Relaxation may not happen when watching TV or having a beer.  The definition of mind/body relaxation is slowing your metabolism to a restful, restorative, re-energizing state while you are awake and aware.  It’s a healthy, healing, power recharge.

Research shows the benefits of daily mind/body relaxation are many, including

  • decreased tension, anxiety, headaches, high blood pressure, and stress symptoms
  • enhanced healing, sleep
  • greater resistance to illness
  • increased energy, vitality, and performance 

So take a break today, and RELAX!

If you would like to learn some new relaxation techniques, the next Relaxation & Stress Management Skills Training programs begin on September 24 and October 15.
