R- 5 reasons why you must learn to Relax!


Our schedules are so tightly packed these days that we are constantly flitting from one activity to the other. Irrespective of whether you are a homemaker, are working outside, or are a student, there’s hardly a minute to spare for yourself! In the process, you end up fatigued, worried and irritated all the time. Only if you’d slow down a bit a take some time out to relax, you’d see that you can complete all your tasks without keeling over from trying too hard.

Here are 5 reasons why you must learn to relax.


Panicking and worrying is not going to make things right.

Sure, there’s a whole of things that keeps us on our tentacles – work that is pending, work that has deadlines, work that expects us to be in many places at the same time, work that is not going as per plan, or work that drives you crazy because the other people involved in it aren’t as dedicated as you are! But panicking or worrying isn’t going to get you anywhere. Things will happen when they have to happen.  


A relaxed mind can take more rational decisions.

You will agree that we hardly take our best decisions when we panic or worry. We tend to shout, argue, fight, feel discouraged, or angry when the mind isn’t relaxed. But if you take some time out to relax, you’ll see that your mind can react to situations and adversities much better. You will be able to take better decisions.


Relaxing increases productivity.

A relaxed mind is more creative and productive. When you give yourself a time out and spend time doing deep breathing exercises, meditating, smelling the flowers, simply lying down, or taking a nap, the areas in the brain responsible for creative thinking are activated. People brainstorm better, are able to memorize better, concentrate better, study better, and handle work stress better after a power nap. So, next time you find yourself in a jam, just reach for the pillow!


A relaxed person has a calming influence on their surroundings.

A relaxed mind is contagious. People around you tend to calm down if you are relaxed. An agitated person tends to increase the tension in their surrounding but a relaxed person dissipates the existing tension.


Relaxing helps keep illness at bay.

Relaxing helps to calm the body and mind. It prevents stress and depression. It also prevents high blood pressure, migraines and such illness which are all a manifestation of panicking and worrying. What is the use of spoiling the health and regretting later?  



Take time out from your busy schedules and relax. The body needs to rejuvenate and recoup. Don’t deny it it’s due.

  1. Quite a few posts around this topic this A to Z. Honestly, just makes me realize I should take a break from it all and go to sleep. But I'm someone who gets anxious even while asleep sometimes :P

  2. Relaxing is as significant as any other activity. When I suddenly have too much on my plate, I list them down and starting from the easiest I keep striking them off. It helps sometimes­čśŐ

  7. A great post on being mindful and aware to calm one during trying moments. I believe practising meditation help one a lot and I am trying to be more composed to be one with the universe, flushing out negative thoughts and feelings.

  9. It was just yesterday when I was so tired to write anything for today's post... the best remedy I did to me was to relax for a while and then I was all charged up! All the points make so much sense here!

  10. I cant think straight on a tired mind or body. So, I have to relax. And I can relax only by taking a nap. So, I take naps of 15-30 minutes whenever my brain shows signs of fatigue. And that does wonders for my productivity and mood too.

  11. This april I really had a hard a time relaxing and realized that it is indeed hard when there's so many thoughts cluttered in the mind. Getting a good sleep helped a lot.
