Rest and Relaxation Benefits

Believe it or not, many people take for granted the need for a time to relax or take a break from work, and it’s sad to note that when you are tired or lacking sleep it is evident in your behavior.

So in that light, I have put together a list of benefits that can be derived from proper rest and relaxation and I invite you to read the points below and see if you can identify with some or perhaps all of them:

1. Decreases the risk of making mistakes at work because now that you’re rested and relaxed you are able to focus better.

2. Decreases stress from managers if work is not done properly

3. Make you look more beautiful. A tired face with baggy eyes is not attractive.

4. Less likely to get illnesses related to continues stress on the body like migraine, hypertension and stomach ulcers.

5. You get to organize your time better, so family time is incorporated.

6. You won’t feel tired and drained all the time.

7. More friendly to be around instead of snapping at everyone all the time because you’re tired.

8. It improves your psychological coping skills. Puts you in a good frame of mind for the job.

9. Facilitates better, healthier eating habits now that you’ve taken the time to slow it down.

Now that you have heard my list, go ahead and add yours in comments.

    I’m finally beginning to see that there is a delicate balance between resting and doing: If you don’t rest enough, you won’t do enough; if you do rest enough, you will do enough. I see this every time I actually take the time to rest. It is crucial to have in our arsenals of self-improvement a habit of resting. By balancing resting and doing, you are living.

    I think I’m right when i say stress can cause constipation as well — so a relax body makes it easier to go *winks

    I do consider all of the ideas you have presented for your post.
    They’re very convincing and will definitely work. Nonetheless, the posts are too
    brief for novices. Could you please prolong them a
    little from next time? Thank you for the post.

    Me fall asleep
