For some people, the weekend is our time to rest and unwind. Other people can’t seem to slow down. Those people have a busy work week followed by a busier weekend. While being busy can be good, sometimes you need to relax. Here are 4 reasons you should take some time to chill out.
You’re not thinking clearly: When you’re stressed or riled up, your brain can easily betray you. The last thing you want to do when you’re frustrated is to make a decision that could cause more frustration. You know I’m right.
It’s good for you: Studies have shown that relaxing prevents colds, lowers risk of heart attack, boosts your memory, lowers risk of stroke, and can even prevent depression. Now I’m no doctor, but if coolin’ out can do all of that, who needs an apple a day?
You’ll burn out: If you don’t take time to relax, you’ll never get rid of the stress that life brings. Between work and home, stress can creep up on you. Sometimes we need to relax so we can recharge our body physically, mentally, and emotionally.
It’s fun: All work and no play can make anyone a monster. It’s fun to relax and have fun. Sometimes we just need to sit on the couch and take a load off. A little laughter and laziness is good for the soul. Why don’t you give it a try this weekend?
