One of the kindest things you can do for your body and wellbeing is just taking a break.
It sounds obvious, but in the competitive work and study situations we are often operating in, it feels hard to let go sometimes.
We went camping last week. A simple no-frills trip in the Sierra National Forest.
No internet, no wifi, no social media. Just hanging out, playing UNO, cooking, reading, swimming and sitting among the wildflowers.
As time passed, I could feel myself decompress as I slowly let go of the little stressors that kept my muscles wound tight like a ball of string. It was such a strange (and good) sensation.
Sometimes the only way to let go, is..... to physically let go.
