Relax and Recharge

Taking downtime is very important for avoiding burnout and decreasing stress. Relaxing protects your heart; chronic stress can have very negative effects on wellbeing. Taking some quiet time to meditate or just relax can help with emotional well-being as well as overall health.

Getting an appropriate amount of sleep is vital for keeping your body healthy and helping you recharge. Getting the correct amount of quality sleep is essential to your ability to learn and process memories. Relaxing can even lower your risk of catching a cold because the immune system can weaken when you don't get enough rest.

Making time to unwind and enjoy life is an important part of maintaining good health. Deep relaxation, like meditation, when practiced regularly not only relieves stress and anxiety, but also is shown to improve mood. Deep relaxation has many other potential benefits as well—it can decrease blood pressure, relieve pain, and improve your immune and cardiovascular systems.
