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!
