What’s so great about relaxing? Well, relaxation is an important part of maintaining your health and wellbeing. It gives your body, mind, and heart a chance to relax and recharge. Many people find it hard to relax due to stress, however, it is important to remember that stress is a normal part of life and can be experienced through your environment, body and thoughts.
