Things that harm your health....not relaxing

We live in a world that is moving so fast and we feel like we have to keep up.  Technology has evolved so much that our "down time" is spent on Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin and other social media sites.  If we aren't in front of the computer we are in front of the TV, outside working or playing but none of these will help you relax.

To truly relax you have to do nothing.  Our bodies AND our brains need this down time.  You don't have to spend hours doing this but a few minutes a day will change your life and how to view your life.

We all know how to relax on a beach so take a good look at this picture.....close your eyes.  Now imagine yourself lying on the beach.  Take a few moments and enjoy the sun, the sand and the sound of the ocean.  This is a great video to watch and listen to while you are relaxing.

If you would like to learn more relaxing techniques the Mayo Clinic has some great ways to relax.
