Using Time To Relax Daily Improves Effectiveness
Take a look at your every day life and write down in a journal what makes up your average day. Now is there any sort of imbalance there? The bottom line is that you must take time to relax and rest consistently.
Of course there will be some imbalance because it appears to be a constant battle for that life balance that we all seek. It seems that some people are a little bit more balanced than others. This may be an area that you excel in, but on the other hand you may want to tweak a few things along the way.
One of the most important areas is rest and relaxation. Do you take some time to relax everday? Now, come on be honest here, because it is only you and the mirror, because it doesn’t directly affect anyone else.
But indirectly it may well affect members of your family or a significant other/partner if you are becoming grumpy, because this is an area where your effort is lacking.The benefits of taking time to relax, far outweigh any negatives, if there are in fact any.
Some people are on the go most of the day and forget to take time to relax. I actually think that this is extremely detrimental to your mental and physical well being, if you don’t set aside some time to take care of this.
Now relaxing is a personal thing and probably individual to your very own situation.
If you have this worked already, then fantastic and well done, but I suspect that there is a vast majority who have not.
What Are The Benefits Of Relaxation And Taking Time To Relax?
1. You feel much more chilled out and quite happy to get back into some kind of work routine.
2. It is great for the mind to spend time away from the hectic pace of life for a short period daily.
3. You will find that your batteries are re-charged and you can handle life’s ups and downs much easier.
4. You will become a much happier person to be around, if you are not already.
What Are Some Tips To Start Me Off
A. If you can set aside a part of your day to relax. Now this can be the same time everyday or depending on your personal circumstances, just a period of time that is flexible.
B. Let people know that this is your relaxation time so that you will not be disturbed.
C. Ensure you are using your time to engage in what relaxes you. It is a personal choice. For me it is reading, meditating and listening to uplifting audios on my ipod. For you it may be a bubblebath or going for a walk in the woods, who knows.
D. Shut out all distracting things, such as the mobile/cell phone, emails, skype, Facebook, so that you can fully concentrate on the important things.
E. Don’t forget to control your environment as much as you can. Maybe just shutting your bedroom door will be enough.
F. Keep experimenting with new things until you find what is best for you.
The key here is to take time to relax and you can work the rest out as you go along. I find that when I take time to relax I come back much fresher and sharper, so that I can tackle things much easier and quicker.
