Relaxation should be a vital part of your daily routine. The process of switching off completely is different to sleeping. Many people find it difficult to sit down and relax as they find their minds racing off to other things that they feel they should be doing. This is an indication that there is a problem.
The process of relaxation is different for everybody. Sometimes walking or any form of exercise can be a great way to release stress. For others a long soak in the bath in complete silence is the most effective way of letting go. Whatever your preferred method of relaxation is make sure you allow at least a few minutes every day to incorporate it into your routine.
