These days life is so hectic, sometimes we need a reminder to just relax, be in the moment, and enjoy life. Chronic stress can lead to physical health issues such as depression, hair loss and ulcers. Relaxation is vital to our health. We all know this, but at times we need to be reminded to slow down.
Today, August 15th 2012, is National Relaxation Day and it’s the perfect excuse to indulge in a mid-week break. You may think that you can’t afford to take a break today because you have too much work. Relaxing will actually help you think clearer, be more productive, and increase your creativity. Taking a break to relax will help you get more done! Think about it, how productive are you when you are tired and burned out?
Here are some tips you can take right now to relax instantly:
- Wherever you are, stop and focus on your breathing. Breathe in for 8 seconds and exhale slowly for 8 more seconds. This will send oxygen to your brain and create instant relaxation.
- Be grateful. Make a quick list of all the things in your life that you are grateful for. Count your blessings and your thinking will shift from negative to positive.
- Get outside and go for a walk! Bathe in the sunlight and appreciate the last days of Summer.
If you own a Thermospa, you have an ideal source for rest and relaxation right in the privacy and luxury of your own home. A lot of our Thermospas owners tell us they use their hot tub every single day! It helps them unwind after a long work day, connect with their loved one, and supports a deeper sleep.
Take the time out today to relax in the warm bubbling water of your hot tub, and let your stresses melt away. Enhance the atmosphere with candles, calming essential oils, and soothing music, then come back here and tell us what you did today to relax!
