Rest and relaxation are the most underrated nutrients for health.
The past month we gave you a really important advice, deep breathing. This sole habit has a potential to make you healthier, happier and more relaxed.
However, this month we will focus more on the relaxation. We need to give relaxation the importance it deserves in our everyday life.
If deep breathing gives you a little momentary fix of relaxation daily, you should give yourself one whole day to just relax.
We are really serious when we say that relaxation is crucially important for health. Most people neglect rest and relaxation and underrate their importance.
But being proactive about your relaxation is as important as being proactive about eating healthy and exercising.
Give yourself one whole self care day every week!
Design a little oasis of relaxation for yourself. Do whatever your desired relaxation activity is, sauna, massage, spa, walking in nature, swimming, or just watching your favorite show.
You can do one of these, or mix a couple of them. You can get creative and literally construct this one day to keep you relaxed.
You can plan the meals you will have, the relaxing activities you will do, the mindset you will hold, the things you will be surrounded with, the people you will hang out with.
Create a day just for you. A day you will show kindness and care to yourself and relax your nervous system.
You should have such day every single week. If that’s something you cannot fit in your schedule, do one day in two weeks.
You should consider this seriously because rest and relaxation are really important for maintaining your health.
