Why Is It Important to Relax? – Easy Ways to Relax

Meditation in NatureDo you sometimes wonder why is it important to relax? We are not meant to run around and always working like a robots. We are not machines. We are human beings.

If we work too much and forget to stop, rest and relax, we can become ill and we can’t do anything right because we are so stressed. Right?

Is this really true? Do we need to relax?

But if we do what we love? If we lose time because we are immersed in the process that we enjoy so much?

What is the answer? Does this kind of life isn’t relaxing, full of joy and love?

I am sure you would say: Of course, we still need to relax.

Would we ever feel tired, if we are doing what we love? What to do if all your life is relaxation?

Do I hear you saying: impossible? Yes, it seems unlikely that somebody can live a life like that. Is it?

I know this is a hypothetical question and philosophical one, because there aren’t many people who can say that they are truly doing what they like and time isn’t existing for them.

Maybe there even isn’t anybody who can say that. It’s possible that all of this is just in my imagination.

So back to the question…

  1. Thank you for presenting the various ways you can relax. Sometimes, we lose our way and simply cannot find the door because of stress.

      Yes. I think sometimes people don’t understand how important is relaxation.
      I agree that sometimes we also can’t see the way out of stress.
      Thank you for your comment!

  2. Hi Linda,

    You have included some good information for why people should relax, along with some good ways for people to relax. I read a really interesting article here at this website ( https://howtoreducestressnaturally.com/2017/11/15/how-reading-reduces-stress/ ) that put into words the reasons and mentioned scientific proof that reading for enjoyment for 6 minutes helps to reduce stress by two thirds. That to me is an amazing reduction.

    I always knew deep down that reading for enjoyment is good for you. Since I read your article, I have been re-reading novels I obtained a while back. I am getting in between 20 minutes and 2 hours novel reading a day and I think that it is helping to reduce my stress and anxiety levels.

    Self-care is extremely important for health reasons. Relaxing is one way to give yourself some self-care. And reading novels is one way to relax. There are many different ways to give self-care, and knowing and doing a number of them every day should help to reduce stress and anxiety.

    Having a good laugh is another great way to relax.

      Hi, David!
      Thank you for your amazing comments that you always gave me. Thanks for sharing your knowledge with me and all of us!
      It’s so wonderful to read that you like my article about reading, and reading is helping you to reduce anxiety and stress. It looks like you enjoy reading once again and see the benefits of it.
      Yes, reading is a great way to relax. I didn’t add reading as an option, because it seemed that I talked too many times about it before.
      Laughter is a medicine that heals souls, puts a smile on our faces and reduce stress.
      Thanks again, David!
