🍎 Today’s Health Tip ~ Learning to Relax for Good Health

Plan a vacation that will actually charge your batteries

Most of us work our asses off all year and then race off to a vacation fully booked with excursions, eating, drinking, and socializing. You can come back even more tired than when you left. Plan a trip, even just a day or two, with the intention to just relax and recharge.

Balance your health with more than just working out

When we live high-stress lives, sometimes our only release is to push harder at the gym. You don’t have to stop working out, but play with swapping in some sauna time or a walk outside. See how it feels to care for yourself in new ways.

Take time to do nothing

Schedule a time in your day to literally do nothing. Yep, nothing. Just park it on your couch and stare at the wall, lay in a hammock and gaze at the clouds, or sit in a nearby park and watch the trees sway. Do it for at least 10 minutes. This will help you get used to letting your nervous system relax.

Take a nap

Take a nap!?! How? When? You can figure it out. Give yourself a gift and just take a damn nap.
