5 Stress-Busting Facts about Relaxing*

1. Relaxing is healthy

Your breathing pattern and oxygen levels are affected by stress. Relaxing and doing breathing exercises help circulate more oxygen into your bloodstream and have major health benefits.

2. Music soothes us

For many people, simply listening to calm music is enough to lower stress levels.

3. Put ‘relax’ on your to-do list

A study reported that 40% of people don’t take time out for relaxing, while 45% of people just don’t know how to relax.

4. There are types to it

Relaxation is classified under three categories: physical, mental, and transcendental.

5. Relax, but focus

Just a minute or two of relaxing between tasks results in increased focus and concentration.
