That feeling of bliss that washes over you when you “get away from it all” isn’t just in your head. Whether you spend time in the great outdoors, reading, or even cooking, total relaxation will help you find, clarity and rejuvenate your mind and body. The exercise that generally goes hand-in-hand with spending time outdoors (hiking, biking, water activities, etc.) spurs the production of endorphins, your brain’s “feel-good” neurotransmitters which helps you feel loose, clear-headed and calm. While some find relaxation in exploring the outside, others find relaxation in the quiet alone time reading, doing needlework or just sitting and thinking.
What will you do today to reach a state of relaxation; you can do it! Take a photo of YOU…relaxing!
“Don’t underestimate the value of doing nothing, of just going along, listening to all the things you can’t hear, and not bothering.” –A.A. Milne
