No matter how hard I try, there is always some element of stress around the holidays. This year I did much better and managed to wrap presents in record time. Maybe because I opted not to buy as much and scaled back the recipient list. I hope you didn’t get sucked up into holiday drama and are preparing for a serene New Year. One of my intentions for the new year is to relax more. To that end, I am sharing ten (10) inspirational quotes I found on relaxation. Actually, one of these I wrote myself! I would love to hear which one(s) resonate the most with you!
“Every now and then go away, have a little relaxation, for when you come back to your work your judgment will be surer. Go some distance away because then the work appears smaller and more of it can be taken in at a glance and a lack of harmony and proportion is more readily seen.” ― Leonardo da Vinci
“Your mind will answer most questions if you learn to relax and wait for the answer.” ― William S. Burroughs
“Tension is who you think you should be. Relaxation is who you are.” ― Chinese Proverb
“Close your eyes and imagine you are lying down on an empty, warm, sandy beach. Hear the ocean waves crashing, sea gulls singing. Feel the golden sun rays dancing in your hair. Take a deep breath and inhale the salty sea breeze. Exhale your worries.” ― Sandi Duverneuil
“As important as it is to have a plan for doing work, it is perhaps more important to have a plan for rest, relaxation, self-care, and sleep.” ― Akiroq Brost
“Energy healing is like defragmenting your hard drive. The scattered pieces of yourself become whole again.” ― Jennifer Ritchie Payette
“Relax, Recharge and Reflect. Sometimes it’s OK to do nothing.” ― Izey Victoria Odiase
“Don’t you simply love going to bed. To curl up warmly in a nice warm bed, in the lovely darkness. That is so restful and then gradually drift away into sleep…”
― C.S. Lewis, Letters of C. S. Lewis
“The secret of relaxation is in these three words: ‘Let it go”!”
― Dada J. P. Vaswani
“Relax, refresh and refocus.”
― Lailah Gifty Akita
