  7. I could write for hours on this subject…

    STRESS is the main culprit for disease; disease means dis – ease, meaning the body is NOT at ease. When you are not relaxed, it affects your central nervous system in a very bad way. Most people choose to outright ignore this fact, or numb themselves with mind and mood altering drugs as to never give consideration to the state of dis-ease their physiology is in.

    Great post!

    1. Hello Howard, Thank you for visiting my website and posting a comment and thank you for confirming how important it is to relax. You are right stress will cause disease and most people are unaware of this. Most people could probable stop most of their medicines if they took the time to relax daily. Again, I want to thank you for your input and you are welcome to come back anytime to visit.

  8. I love when other people promote relaxing. I myself am a firm believer we should all relax more. I promote various ways to do so like coloring and reading. I often take long hot baths. Recently I learned that adding a cup of baking soda to a bath helps to detox the skin and feels wonderful. Great article. I love it.

  10. I’m with you on this relaxing thing, Mary! Wow, you have 8 children! You have to be quite organized to handle all the multitasking required for a family that size. I know you’ve learned some things over the years about decreasing stress and increasing relaxation.

    Using essential oils like lavender and peppermint work great for me when I need energized or when I want to relax. I also have favorite candle scents that change with the seasons. Being still, being out in nature, or going for walks combined with using essential oils work very well together. Great post!

  11. It is so important to relax, as you say many benefits to our health. But the way life is today people seem to get too stressed out, their jobs might not help. Just taking a little time to restore again will do wonders. My back starts paining when I get tensed or stressed out. Great article.

    1. Hello Eden,
      Thank you for visiting my website. I understand that life can be distracting and we have a million things to do in one day.

It can be in the car, in the shower or before we go to the bed. This will give us more time with family in the future. Thank you again for visiting and come back soon.
