Time to relax!

  • “Even small disruptions to sleep habits can dull our mental performance, according to researchers. In some cases, the effects can be serious — the number of car accidents actually increases the day after we turn our clocks forward.” – 5 ways to feel rested, even after turning your clock forward
  • “Recent studies are showing that taking time for silence restores the nervous system, helps sustain energy, and conditions our minds to be more adaptive and responsive to the complex environments in which so many of us now live, work, and lead. Duke Medical School’s Imke Kirste recently found that silence is associated with the development of new cells in the hippocampus, the key brain region associated with learning and memory.” – The Busier You Are, the More You Need Quiet Time
  • “Your mental wheels start turning, anxiety builds, and before you know it, you realize an hour has passed since you turned out the lights. You worry that if you don’t sleep now tomorrow will be completely unproductive. Needless to say, this doesn’t relax you any further, and spin further into the cycle of insomnia. The crushing exhaustion that hits after only a night or two of sleeplessness is enough to derail anyone.” – Too Stressed To Sleep? How To Turn Off Your Brain Before Bed
  • “Fake laughter triggers more brain activity – in the medial prefrontal cortex, associated with problem-solving – as we try to work out why the person is doing it. Genuine laughter simply activates auditory areas in the temporal lobe – where we process all sound. But both activate the brain’s mirror regions that mimic other’s actions, and she says this is the reason behind why laughing can be so contagious.” – Why we get the giggles: Scientist reveals how social bonds can cause contagious laughter – even when something isn’t funny

Time to relax!

  • “In fact, the very act of climbing forces me to release the tension in my body. I cannot force myself to continue to move up the wall if all my muscles are contracted — I have to relax. With the release of tension in my muscles, I can feel the worry leave my body.” – Relaxing does not mean turning your brain off
  • “Everyone experiences anxiety on some scale. It could be from situations that are totally out of your control or things you’re just nervous about, such as a work project or tough conversation. But here’s the good news: This type of stress doesn’t have to take over your life.” – The Best Songs To Reduce Anxiety And Stress
  • “She says she wrote it to honor a maid she once watched ride the bus in New York City. But it was the woman’s laugh that caught Angelou’s attention. The unnamed woman, who was carrying two shopping bags, laughed whenever the bus stopped abruptly. She also laughed when it stopped slowly.” – Maya Angelou knew how a laugh could be a survival tool
  • “…when you ask people directly, or force them to rank a list of benefits, you don’t always get a clear picture of what they really value. People often have a poor understanding of what makes them happy, and this applies at work, too.” – If You Want to Be Happy at Work, Have a Life Outside of It
