Relaxation is the opposite of stress. Unfortunately we see too many people stressed out these days versus relaxed. Have you ever seen any one in the middle of the work day take a power nap?
Stress will cause mental and physical impairments on our bodies. Short term stress is beneficial to our mind and body, but chronic stress is detrimental. Examples of beneficial short term stress can be exercise, competitions, or even word puzzles. Chronic stress is usually masked as anxiety, worry, or fear.
We live in a day where nearly everything we want is at our fingertips. I mean this literally. Because most everyone has a cell phone, you can have any object, information, or contact in a matter of seconds. Unfortunately, that means we can get everything in a matter of seconds.
This living by the minute with instantaneous results causes us to expect everything instantly. This is bad for our body and mind because it keeps us slightly on edge. Patience is a virtue that is slowly dying. Remember the good old days of dial up internet where it took minutes to get access. Could you imagine kids these days waiting for the cell phone to “dial up” their Facebook page.
Anyway, the reason I talk about this fast paced world is because I offer a solution to slow things down. For the betterment of your health, I’m strongly recommending for you to relax. Relaxation allows you to step away from the hustle and bustle of life. Relaxation will make you healthier and live a more balanced life.
