How Do You Relax?

There are times when we need downtime from meeting all the demands on our time. Some of us feel guilty in taking time or indulging in ourselves; but, its all about balance. We need enough time set aside to escape into pleasurable thoughts and activities. There are many studies on great thinkers who found that when they relaxed after intensely focusing on a problem; they had a solution come out of nowhere in the midst of their relaxation. The mind is like a muscle that gets overworked by constant pressure and unless you relax it and allow the blood to circulate then it will seize up. You will find you will be more productive and enjoy the times you are focused on your goals if you treat yourself well.

Find and enjoy your balance between work and relaxation.

A nice brisk walk does it for me. Everyone has their own way and it would be interesting to see how folks handle this issue.

Yes everyone needs to find several ways with differing time amounts required so they will always have a tool whether it be for 3 minutes or 3 hours.
Thanks for the comment.

I commented on your other post just recently and I would say breathing and listening to my heart :) I think that is the most effective. I would also want to add activities that can divert me from busy to lax. Sometimes we need to take a break and we don't have to stress ourselves out just to reach a goal or something.
