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 three types of relaxation.

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.
