National Relaxation Day
National Relaxation Day is this Saturday, August 15. This has been one wild year full of unknowns, transitions, life-altering events and changes. It is important as humans to set aside time for yourself to relax and unwind.
We often times feel the need to constantly stay busy in order to feel productive. When in reality, a face-paced life with no breaks can cause stress and exhaustion, which can be detrimental to our emotional and physical health.
