Relaxation – Def: to become less active and more calm and happy.
I know people who are busy from the moment they awaken to the time they go to bed. When I ask them if they ever relax they tell me that their work is their relaxation. I don’t argue with them. We need, however, opportunities to get away from the stressors. We need opportunities to find a change of pace. We need opportunities to “turn off the noise.” Can you watch TV without looking at your smart phone? Can you eat a meal with your smart phone tucked away? Can you have a conversation without bringing up work or stressful topics? Small changes to acquired behaviors can make all the difference. Make relaxation opportunities a priority. The benefits will amaze you.
