Didn’t we all know inherently how to relax as children? Everyone’s upbringing is different. But I have intense memories of the world’s I made under a blanket.
This was the pinnacle of relaxation. Being underneath would start as an adrenaline rush often, and then my childish body would become the most relaxed in the world. Out like a light. Now what happened to relaxing under blankets? Where did it all go? How do YOU relax? Life has gotten so noisy, what was once assumed and implicit now requires skill.
― Carl Gustav Jung
Takes a lot of compromises to sail the 7 seas with everyone on a hunk of junk.
The number one factor to health is stress. When did learning to relax need to become a skill?
“I am not what happened to me, I am what I choose to become.”
Stress.org shows us how serious the problem is.
The next time you consume some media, ask yourself - does this cause more stress or lower it in me? I know it’s more nuanced than that- I like spooky stuff to relax. But the bottom line is, watch out and if nothing else, please learn how to relax.
