Relaxation

We may associate relaxation with "wasting time," but in fact, regular relaxation and stress manegement are important for physical and emotional health.

  • This is because your body's stress response can get triggerd often throughout the day and, if your body doesn't return to its regular state of relaxation afterward, you may find yourself in a state of chronic stress.

Learning to relax your body and your mind can be more effective than simply relying on distraction or resilience.
