Last weekend, I had a bunch of friends over for a brunch. We had a very nice time. Of course, we discussed many topics and one of the hot topic was why relaxing is hard work. Nowadays life is becoming so hectic and tense that people need to learn to relax.
Relaxation is the art of dropping tension. When you are tense, your mind and body are overactive. You bring needles power into action and that wears you out to no purpose. Strain and fatigue lower your mental as well as physical resistance. The hectic type of life we lead today has made it difficult for all of us to relax. We all have so much to do and to get that we have to acquire the habit of always doing or getting. Even when we think we are relaxing, we are apt to be doing something or worrying about something which makes us tense.
We must experience relaxation, see how enjoyable it can be. By relaxing we can gain a brand new sense of ease, calm and confidence. You can do almost everything better by being relaxed as you possibly can be. But don’t take relaxing as a burden. Instead, drop the burden of tension you have been carrying with you to your work and to your home. People think that in order to relax they have to put a lot of effort. There should not be any effort in relaxing. The goal is not what you have to do but what you don’t have to do. So relax often and enjoy your life!
