Welcome to the BodLog! We are excited to provide tips to help our bodloggers relax and rejuvenate. It's not easy to slow down from our daily demands but, it's mandatory that we make time to. The very definition of relaxation (dictionary.com) states an (1) abatement or relief from bodily or mental work, etc. (2.) an activity or recreation that provides such relief... Massage, Aromatherapies, Body Treatments and the like are some ways to achieve this goal. Rejuvenation is also essential as it is defined as: to restore to original or new state.
Stress is necessary for life but, when stress overwhelms your nervous system your body is flooded with chemicals that prepare you for “fight or flight”. While the stress response can be lifesaving in emergency situations where you need to act quickly, it wears your body down when constantly activated by the stresses of everyday life. The relaxation response puts the brakes on this heightened state of readiness and brings your body and mind back into a state of equilibrium. (HelpGuide.org)
