When was the last time you relaxed?
Our minds are locked in a constant battle between living in the current moment and searching for the next. So, let me ask you again … when was the last time you relaxed?
For most of us, time seems limited. We all have the same amount of time in a day and yet, it seems there is never enough of it. It looks like time is running out, and time is in high demand but short supply. So, how do we “find” more?
We are surrounded by technology that is designed to make life easier. This same technology has created a modern-day work model in which employees are on-demand 24/7. With our ever-present smartphones, it has become impossible to escape work emails and business calls. Our work is with us everywhere we go.
We over-book, over-schedule and over-commit, which creates stress. For most of us, stress has become an accepted part of life. We earn vacation time, yet often feel guilt or shame for taking time off work to get away. We know that we need to relax and slow down, but we are all looking for an efficient way to fit it into our schedule.
Finding a relaxing activity doesn’t seem to be the problem. The question we all seem to be pondering is,
“How do we find the time?”
There are many quick and easy ways to relax. In an article written by Elizabeth Scott, author of the book 8 Keys to Stress Management, she suggests some of the following practices to “relax fast.”
•Progressive Muscle Relaxation
•Have a good laugh
These are all excellent suggestions. For some of us, spending time with our children, reading a book, doing yoga or working out might be our go-to stress-relieving activity. The bottom line is that we all need to make time to relax to avoid letting the pressures of life sneak up on us and stop us in our tracks.
Relaxing looks different for everyone. Finding a relaxing activity doesn’t seem to be the problem. The question we all seem to be pondering is, “How do we find the time?”
