Healthful Resolutions: Getting Rest
Published: 01/29/2013

Each Tuesday in January we present healthy resolutions for the New Year. Consider including them in your healthful lifestyle routine!

With hectic schedules, daily stressors like traffic and work issues, and families to care for, many of us simply don’t get enough rest. But the fact is rest is important – as important as physical activity for general health, and getting adequate amounts of quality rest and sleep should be a priority. Identify periods during the day when you can be passive, without stimulation, doing nothing. Then take advantage of these moments and let your mind and body take a break, even if it is just for five or ten minutes. If you have trouble letting go, even for a few minutes, use breathing exercises to quiet your mind and relax, and help you put the day-to-day concerns in perspective.
