Relaxation is my doorway to peace, productivity, and motivation
I aim to live a life that is peaceful and productive. Relaxation is one of the most important tools I use to achieve this goal.
When I relax, I allow the stress of the day to slip from my body. My muscles loosen, and within a few minutes, my thoughts begin to calm.
By allowing relaxation, I enable myself to choose healthy responses to stress. I disallow reactionary responses and, instead, choose words and actions that reflect wisdom and insight.
Taking a few moments out in the middle of a busy day also increases my productivity. This time is important, and I make it a priority. By allowing myself to sit back and close my eyes for a few minutes, I restore my energy and revitalize myself.
Sometimes the busyness of my day does not allow for more than a few moments of rest. That’s okay. When I reserve time for myself in the evening or on the weekend, it still enables me to be motivated and able to deal with the challenges at hand.
Setting aside time for myself is an investment. It gives me energy and allows me to be far more productive. I find that I am calmer, wiser, and better able to deal with life’s challenges when I make time to relax.
