Need an excuse to stop, drop, and relax? It’s National Relaxation Day today! August 15 marks the most laid-back day of the year. You’ve made it past Monday and you deserve more than a little bit of relaxation. Slow down, read a book, watch a movie, or go out into nature. It’s your day and you can do whatever you want to to free your mind. Take a breather from the fast-paced lifestyle we live in and rejuvenate your tired mind.
Here are 8 quotes to help you unwind.
Stop a minute, right where you are. Relax your shoulders, shake your head and spine like a dog shaking off the cold water. Tell that imperious voice in your head to be still.
If you want to relax, watch the clouds pass by if you’re laying on the grass, or sit in front of the creek; just doing nothing and having those still moments is what really rejuvenates the body.
Slow down and everything you are chasing will come around and catch you.
John De Paola
Tension is who you think you should be. Relaxation is who you are.
Some of the secret joys of living are not found by rushing from point A to point B, but by inventing some imaginary letters along the way.
Relax and refuse to let worry and stress rule your life. There is always a solution to every problem. Things will work out for you when you take time to relax, refresh, restore and recharge your soul.
Lailah Gifty Akita
Learn to relax. Your body is precious, as it houses your mind and spirit. Inner peace begins with a relaxed body.
Norman Vincent Peale
Take the next 24 hours and just relax with the knowing that everything is okay. Let go of the stress and worry for one day and see what happens.
