Relaxation is imperative for the rejuvenation of our bodies and our minds.
Sometimes it is hard to relax.
At times these may be due to physical problems, emotional problems, or spiritual problems. If this is the case, please waste no time in talking to your doctor, counselor, or pastor.
At other times, however, it may be due to simply over-committing ourselves.
By pausing to #taketimetothinktime, this last cause can thankfully be easily avoided in two ways.
First, take time before you dive into each week to evaluate what is on your to do list.
Even if you have the desire to relax, you may not do it because you feel is “in the right thing to do” to fulfill your commitments and obligations (which of course is true). This is why you want to be very careful what you say “yes” to.
Second, take time to evaluate how you can include relaxation into your daily and weekly routines. You will be amazed at how much more effective, connected, and productive you will be when you intentionally plan time to relax and allow yourself to do so.
How do you best relax?
p.s. Have you ever wanted to have a life-coach, but didn’t know where to start? A little think-time can change your life.
