What does it mean to relax? Most people will answer in a way that suggests that relaxing is something that you do later. You will do it on vacation, when you retire, or when you get everything checked off of your list-DONE! Most of us postpone relaxation until our "inbox" is empty. Could this contribute to why most people operate as if life was one great big EMERGENCY? Here's the thing, you can relax now. Yes, right at this given moment. It is helpful to think of relaxation as a quality that you can access on a regular basis rather than it being reserved for later. Being more relaxed involves training yourself to respond to the different dramas of life with kindness and patience. Now, its up to you to continue to live your life in a constant state of crisis or take a few moments out of your day to relax and make healthy life choices to the dramas of life. Choose to relax.
