Twice today, I was reminded how relaxation can benefit me in so many ways. The first time was when a support partner suggested a form of relaxation as a way to regain focus on a rather large goal. The second time was when the facilitator of another group led the group in a relaxation exercise. The purpose in this case was to “let go” of things that might be hindering us in keeping a daily agreement.
In both of these instances, I realized I have not been relaxing nearly enough. I am committing now to focusing on relaxing at least once per day, and more often if I have things “come up” that need some calm and clarity.
On that note, it is nearly midnight and I need to go to bed. Before I go to sleep, however, I will meditate to get myself in a relaxed state. And I will monitor myself this week to be sure I am sticking to this commitment of relaxing daily.
