Everyone needs to relax!
In this crazy, busy and hectic world we live in, everyone needs sometime to relax. I have a corner in my room by the window where I like to sit on my quaint little old lady (no offense to old ladies) rocker and stare out the window with tea in hand and a good book in another. I like to listen to the birds chirping and watch the trees swaying in the wind. It's a moment to clear my thoughts, to regroup if you will. I especially like doing this in the morning after I have juiced some oranges. I will take my giant cup of sunshine over to my special window to breathe, rock, sip and listen to nature. This I appreciate coming from New York City, I didn't have much nature to appreciate and the only sounds out my window were cars honking and people yelling. I have a back massager on my chair and foot massager at my foot rest so I pretend I'm at a spa. Everyone should pick a place whether in your home, park, salon or coffee shop where you can relax and clear your thoughts. Stress is a key factor in heart disease and high blood pressure so it's important to take some time to relax. Try some relaxing teas such as chamomile, white, green, roobios or a cup of dark hot chocolate is nice too. If you don't have nature near by you can purchase a c.d with soothing nature sounds such as birds chirping, waterfalls, rain and so on. You can also try burning some lavender oil which is very calming. So take that needed minute or hour to relax, your body and mind will thank you for it.
