3 Rs To Make Anyones Life Easier!

By: Gordon Bryan

3 words, all of them beginning with ‘R’, and all of them needed to make
our lives happier and flowing more easily:

1.Recreation.
2.Relaxation.
3.Rich parents.

Ok, number 3 is a joke, and a fairly poor one at that, so let’s concentrate
on the first – recreation.

Music, sport, art, dance, films.
It doesn’t matter what your choice is when it comes to recreation.

What does matter though, is that you do it, and do it regularly.
When we take part in recreation, we release our own natural feelgood
potion – endorphins.

In my case, it’s music.
When I play the drums, or listen to a song I love, I can shut my eyes and
feel the stress and strains lift right off me.

It’s no big secret, it’s brain association.
The brain associates the activity with a happy relaxed you, so when you
do the activity, you feel happy and relaxed!

Ah yes, relaxation, the second of our all-important ‘R’s.
Relaxation is not just for sissies, it’s not just for wasters, it’s essential for
the body.

The body cannot keep going non-stop forever.

It will conk out eventually,
a bit like my car.

You need to get enough sleep, and you need to have time for your self, to
do nothing, and just ‘be’.

This can be as little as a five minute meditation using relaxation
techniques.

In our ever-more hectic lives, recreation and relaxation seem like bonuses,
luxuries we can have ‘later’.

Wrong!
They are not luxuries, they are essential for your productivity and well
being, and just as you schedule your tasks to get them done efficiently,
you also mustFeature Articles, I repeat *must* schedule recreation and relaxation.
