More and more healthcare practitioners are encouraging patients to slow down, hit the “pause” button, or to have a little fun because these breaks are essential to good health. Taking a moment to pause can change heart rhythms, relax muscles, and improve immunity, to name a few benefits. What I find so amazing is that the body can and will respond favourably to the moments we find in life to pause. Taking a deep breath, stopping to listen to a favourite song, or just lying flat on the grass to check in with your body are all ways to send your mind and body the message to restore. And I promise these moments will pay off for your health and wellness.
Have a wonderful and safe day.
