We hear the word relaxation, and I’m sure a lot of you laugh when you hear that word. Many people seem to not get any ” me” time due to the hectic lifestyles we live. It’s not going to be given to us, so it’s very important that we make it.
I know your thinking there is no way you can make it, but I promise you can. It can be simply of taking 10 minutes to take a hot bath, or 30 minutes to take a short walk. I love playing tennis on the weekends, and I maintain that every weekend. A wine night out with the girls never hurt either. Statistics show that stress over load or what they call burn out will wreak havoc on our bodies and health. It’s apparative we make ” me ” time.
Stress is such a huge factor in what causes many diseases and ailments. Meditation is a wonderful way to take 10 minutes of “me” time. I have many amazing meditation podcasts that I love. Stress overload can cause high blood pressure, obesity , and heart problems among other things. Take time for yourself. I can’t stress the importance. My favorite way to unwind is watching a great movie with my family and having a good glass of Pinot. We weren’t put on this earth to never take time for ourselves. We have to take care of ourselves before we can take care of everyone else. When we enjoy what we are doing, everything is balanced. Who said Laughter didn’t help stress levels. Laugh every chance you can get. Your heart and health will appreciate it.
