Active relaxation or the act of doing nothing is a powerful healing prescription. Regular practice substantially improves our body’s key operating systems. It is a behavior that strengthens the immune system, relaxes the nervous systems and recharges the brain. An essential first step is to give your self permission to do nothing. Start with simple behaviors such as listening to soothing music or a walk in the park. My all time favorite is to sit in silence and stare into space. You may prefer to stare out the window or at an object, photo, painting. Anything you chose will work. A pet is a great choice. Experiment with what works best for you. Make time. Practice doing nothing. Use your imagination. Create a set of do nothing behaviors. Practice does make perfect. Especially any thing we wish to master. So, reduce your stress and anxiety. Do nothing. Besides it’s free. It is just that simple. margiesdaughter.com
