4 Simple Ways to Relax

Surrender to serenity during August. This is the month to immerse yourself in relaxation. Most of us live stressed out lives. We live as if relaxation is an unattainable goal or something we do only when our work is finished. We treat relaxation like a luxury. The art of relaxation is essential for our mental, physical and spiritual health. Every species on earth relaxes at regular intervals during their day. We can learn from looking at all the creatures in nature.

Four Simple Short Relaxation Tips

  1. Breathe. Inhale to the count of four, 1-2-3-4, and exhale to the count of four, 1-2-3-4.
  2. Music. Listen to your favorite relaxing music for a few minutes.
  3. Take a mental vacation. Close your eyes and imagine you are in the most relaxing place you know and that you love. How does it smell, taste, sound, and feel?
  4. Inspiration. Read a short inspirational saying slowly and absorb the healing words.
