I do it?
There's never enough time to do all the nothing you want.

How you do it depends on you. The concept of relaxing is different for each person. Maybe you like to listen to classical music, curl up with a good book and/or cat, take a walk, or head to the beach.
Chilling doesn't necessarily mean doing nothing. Some people relax by working. Not working at their everyday jobs, or doing chores, but by working at their hobbies like painting, scrapbooking, or gardening (not to be confused with toiling in the hot sun).
In today's world sometimes relaxing doesn't come easy. We feel guilty if we're not being productive or if we aren't marking off all the items on our never-ending "to do" list. Stress can be a 24/7 problem, interfering with our rest. That makes it all the more important to add "relax" to our list of things to accomplish. Yes, sometimes it is necessary to schedule down time.
Here are some of the health benefits* of relaxation:
- Helps protect your heart.
- Helps protect you against getting colds.
- Helps boost your memory.
- Helps protect you against depression.
- Helps you make better decisions.
So whether it's taking in an afternoon matinee or lying on your back watching the clouds, take some time to just chill - it's good for you!
