Do you want to be productive, happy and healthy? Do you want to feel good while working or playing? Then you must take time to relax. Relaxation is the release of tension, and the return to equilibrium. Sleeping is part of relaxing but your sleep could suffer if you don’t take periods of down time during the day. Relaxation involves the conscious choice to release tension that comes from emotions such as fear, anger and anxiety.
Taking time to relax may involve:
- regular breaks at work
- vacation time
- naps during the day
- any activity that takes your mind off of problems and challenges such as reading, watching tv or listening to soothing music
- art: music, drawing, painting, singing, dancing
- low stress exercise such as walking
- mindfulness techniques such as yoga, meditation, chi gong, tai chi.
- eating mindfully
You may have some tapes or “programming” in your head that says that you should never relax and that you should always be productive. How is that working for you?
Night moves into day. Warm moves to cold. There is growth, then hibernation. Activity and rest is the natural order of things. You are part of that natural order. Give yourself a break if you are not in the habit of doing so.
One 20 minute hypnotherapy session can be like a three hour refreshing nap. If you have trouble relaxing and it’s taking it’s toll on your health or sanity, give me a call or use the contact Ted tab.
