Having a long day, or feeling like life has a way of piling on the stress without giving you an opportunity to unwind?
Then here’s some good news: slowing down and entering the realm of relaxation is one of the healthiest things we can do, ever.
Did you know that all healing, maintenance and repair of body tissue happens in a relaxation response?
It’s literally like an on/off switch in the nervous system. When the stress response is turned on, deep regeneration of the body is turned off.
And when the relaxation response is activated, we swiftly enter our optimum healing state. That’s why people have intuitively known for eons of time that rest is called for in times of illness. Why wait till your sick when you can enter into a healing state right now.
And the way we create a relaxation response is simple:
Slow down.
Breathe deeply.
Feel yourself.
Let go of judgments and unkind thoughts.
Give thanks.
Connect deeply with someone.
Have a cup of tea.
And savor your life…
