Relaxation has medical importance, too. Did you know that taking a period of relaxation improves brain function and memory? It does. Making time for R & R also helps to lower your risk of depression, anxiety, heart-attacks, and boosts the immune system. The human body, as well as the frog's, wasn't designed to go full speed 24/7. It was designed to take regular periods of rest and relaxation.
Recently, I came across a sign that kind of hit home for me. It said, "You do enough. You are enough. You have enough. RELAX." These is a simple but profound truth. I hope you remember this the next time you let your busy schedule interfere with your "me" time. You are important. You can't take care of anyone else or anything else, if you don't first take care of yourself. However you choose to relax this weekend, make sure that you let yourself enjoy the time. No guilty conscious and no cheating by doing just "one more thing." All of your responsibilities will still be there tomorrow.
Now it's time for me to get back to work so that when tomorrow does roll around, I'll be ready to just be. And I'm sooo looking forward it!
See you back here on Monday, all rested and ready for a super new week.
