Most of us are so busy on a day to day basis we forget to take a few minutes for ourselves. We are continually rushing through our life and we never stop and think about the consequences that it can have on our health. It is so important that we take some time out of each day to just relax, even if it is just a few minutes.
Recent research has shown that both men and women today are less happy than they have been over the past 40 years. There are many theories about why, but lack of time taken for yourself can be a major reason. The lack of time to yourself can cause you to build up resentments that can harm you and your relationships. When you spend all your time filling other people’s cups, it’s likely yours will run empty. Sometimes, especially when we’re tired, we may become angry about giving so much.
We have to spare a moment or two during day to sit back and just do nothing, we all deserve that sometimes. You think you have to go to the spa to get the full relax mode on, we have a way you can bring the spa experience to your home with just the help of an herb. Bay Leaf!
