As we experience this Labor Day, remember what is means: a day to honor working people by giving them a break from work. In other words, RELAX.

“Relax: re·lax (rəˈlaks/) v. make or become less tense or anxious.

Being tense and anxious can make you worried, uneasy, irritable, exhausted and even susceptible to illness, including diabetes, heart disease, obesity, gastrointestinal ailments and depression. 

To live our best lives, we must take time to relax.

Clearly, relaxation is good for you. The benefits of lessening tension and anxiety are enormous. It makes you think more clearly, work more efficiently, handle stress better, and live as a nicer, happier and healthier person. Use this Labor Day to rejuvenate your mind and body with these ideas for relaxing.

Get Out & Enjoy Nature. Being in your office, constantly focusing on client needs, can make you mentally exhausted. Luckily, nature will give your brain a break from everyday over-stimulation. Go for a walk in the park, take a hike with family and friends, share a kayak with a loved one on a quiet lake, have a picnic dinner date rather than going to a restaurant. Really pay attention to your surroundings and soak them in.

Engage in Play. Focusing energy on an enjoyable activity relaxes and rejuvenates the mind. Depending on your choice of activity, it can provide quiet peacefulness or much-needed social interaction. Think back to the things you enjoyed before you had so many responsibilities and time constraints, and do those things again. Whether it be painting, playing guitar, bird-watching, or shooting hoops with friends, do it today with your family and friends.
