It’s easy to be busy, and to move around endlessly. It’s easy to want something to do, and even easier to have something you gotta do. We all have a to-do list that goes up to infinity on the best day.
It’s really, really hard to relax… which is kind of ironic, isn’t it? You have to make a concerted effort to stop exerting so much effort. Really goes to show what sort of world we live in.
It’s really hard at first–you feel restless and possibly even guilty for not doing anything; for not tackling that infinite to-do list. But you (or at least I eventually do) find that if you give yourself ten, twenty minutes to relax, everything else on your list feels much easier to tackle.
Give it a try. Relax.
Take a bath. Take a walk. Take a nap. Grab a Kit-Kat. Make some tea. Cuddle with your pet, or significant other, or a stuffed animal. Use aromatherapy. Breathe.
