As we all go through life, we get busier and busier. From work to chores and relationships with our family and friends, our lives are becoming more crowded, and less relaxed. It’s hard to know when you need to take some time off to recover from the stresses of day to day activities. Sometimes we end up forgetting to take a moment to breathe, sit down, and destress. Relaxation is perhaps one of the most important parts of our lives, and yet so many people find themselves without the time to do it.

Relaxation is a process that decreases the effects of stress on your mind and body.
