Set aside time to relax each day

Some people prefer to relax right before bed to help fall asleep. Others relax first thing in the morning to start the day refreshed and revitalized.

Consider if there are times in the day when your stress level is high or your energy is low. These can be ideal times to schedule in a brief relaxation session.

Relaxing energies

Being out in nature is relaxing for a reason. We have a symbiotic relationship with mother earth.

If you want tangible proof; be aware of your inner body while touching a tree.

You will feel a calming, loving energy come through. All things on this blue planet of ours are imbued with energy. Go for a stroll in the park, sit below a tree, or have a picnic.

How to relax at your desk

When tightening up at your desk, relax all your muscles. Let them go limp and loose like a soft towel. Don’t try, just let it all go.

Consciously let the muscles relax every time you feel them tighten, which might be all day long to start with. It is almost impossible to feel stressed if your muscles are relaxed.

Start a relaxing bedtime routine

Do the same things each night to tell your body it’s time to wind down. This may include taking a warm bath or shower, reading a book, or listening to soothing music.

Relaxing activities done with lowered lights can help ease the transition between wakefulness and sleepiness.

Clear your mind

When you need to clear your mind, there’s nothing like getting a breath of fresh air — literally!

Take a brisk walk or jog outside — maybe some music, no cell phone, just you. You don’t have to get off the beaten path. Even a circuit around your neighborhood will work. Tune out what’s going on around you (but still watch out for traffic!) and concentrate on the rhythm of your strides.

When performing massage, start from the lower back in slow strokes, applying medium pressure, and move upwards. Continue this until you reach the top of the shoulders. It would help the person relax even more.
