I care for my mind and body by taking time to relax.
Life can hold both internal and external demands at times. Rather than relaxing, my brain may be in a striving mentality—urging me to go full speed ahead toward accomplishing everything on my to-do list. Relaxation is important to my physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual health. So I empty myself of stress and fill myself with peace. I engage in relaxing activities such as going for a walk in nature, listening to soothing music, or coloring in a page of an adult coloring book. I feel bathed in a calm, restorative energy. My thoughts focus on the peacefulness of the present moment. My body responds by releasing physical tension. I care for my mind and body by taking time to relax.
Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, or about your body, what you will wear.—Matthew 6:25
