When you lead a busy life it is not always easy to find time to relax, and yet it is vitally important that you do so. Both physically and mentally, relaxation will keep you on the right track for being healthy. Stress posed by the challenges that you have to face every day will cause premature aging of your skin cells. Without rest your mind will become sluggish. You will face an increased risk of medical conditions such as high blood pressure, heart disease, dementia, and diabetes.

No matter how busy you are, you need to find time for you. If you find the time to relax, even for just a few minutes, you will soon realize the benefits of doing so. You don’t have to make it a big deal. It can be anything that will take you away from your busy schedule for a short while.

Learn To Say No And Mean It

There are only so many hours in a day, and only so much you can do in those hours. When someone asks you to do something that you don’t have time for, say no for the sake of your health. You should not take on more than you can handle, as this will only create more stress. Only say yes to things that are in line with your priorities and goals, and only those things you have time for.

Turn Of The Technology

Checking emails, playing games on the computer or updating your social media does not relax you. You need to turn the tech off for a while so that your mind gets a rest as well as your body. Taking a walk around the outside of your workplace on your lunch break, or soaking in the bathtub when you get home will be much more effective in helping you to de-stress.


Regardless of whether you are watching a funny TV show or telling funny stories to your friends or family, laughter is one of the best medicines around for relaxing your body and your mind. Laughter will not only reduce the stress you are feeling, but it will also stimulate your organs and boost your immune system

Make An Appointment With Yourself

Over the next few days as your calendar fills with appointments, put one in there for yourself. This appointment, which is just for you, has the potential of being more important than anything else on your calendar. Join a yoga class, or go for a massage or perhaps a manicure. All of these things will help you to relax and make life easier to cope with.
