From the biggest dreams to the smallest achievements of our day-to-day lives, the result comes from our effort. Whether getting a diploma or winning the dream job, all of this requires a lot of dedication and individual effort from each one.
But success is not built by effort alone. To get there, you also need to relax!
Relaxing means returning to the natural state of calm, both physical and emotional, leaving the state of tension. Relaxing is to drastically reduce muscle, physical and psychic activity, through a conscious and self-directed act.
Relaxation exercises have been known since ancient times and vary from culture to culture.
Here are some easy-to-access techniques, so you can balance your body and mind:
Listen to music
The benefits of music range from pain relief, memory improvement and encouragement to practice physical activity. Music activates the brain’s pleasure center and causes a sense of well-being.
Choose the songs that calm your mind, the ones that increase the energy in your body, choose the ones that reduce tensions and worries, choose the ones that take you to travel… choose and create your own playlist and always use it whatever you want. Music can be an economical technique and is always within your reach.
