Relaxing Things To Do At Home
Yes, relaxing feels great! However, relaxation is more than just something that feels good. It is good for us too! As WellBeing People points out, “When we relax, the flow of blood increases around our body giving us more energy. It helps us to have a calmer and clearer mind which aids positive thinking, concentration, memory and decision making. Relaxation slows our heart rate, reduces our blood pressure and relieves tension. It also aids digestion as we absorb essential nutrients more efficiently when relaxed, which helps to fight off disease and infection.”
