Relaxation is a natural medicine with far-reaching health benefits
Relaxation is a natural medicine with far-reaching health benefits. It restores your mental balance and allows your body to repair and replenish itself, strengthens your immune function, improves your self-worth and confidence and increases your sense of having control of your life. Being able to relax is essential for maintaining your health and well-being, but the constant pressures and technology over-whelm of 21st Century life can make it hard to relax – it’s as if we forget how to.
Overcome common blocks to relaxation
Protect Your Body From Daily Stress shows that relaxation is a process that involves the whole of you. It looks at the most common blocks to relaxation and how to overcome them.
