There’s something missing from today’s to-do list: relaxation.
A lot of us skip right over time spent relaxing because with everything we have going on, it would seem lazy to kick our feet up. However, relaxing is incredibly valuable when it comes to our health, both long and short term. Taking a breather can decrease our chances of coming down with a cold this week, while decreasing our chances of suffering high blood pressure or strokes later on.
Making friends with relaxation also helps us accomplish more during our active times. We’re less tense and overwhelmed, better able to focus on what’s right in front of us.
