National Relaxation Day is August 15th! While many probably already know the general good that taking some time to slow down and genuinely unwind from daily stresses can bring, there are actually many specific benefits that relaxing can have on your physical and mental health, such as:
Lowering your blood pressure
Reducing muscle tension
Improving sleep quality (along with lowering overall fatigue!)
Reducing anger (and improving overall mood!)
In celebration of National Relaxation Day (and every day!), make sure to take some time to relax and practice self-care - in whatever form that may take for you! Exercising, eating healthy (and regular meals), and reaching out to chat with family and friends are some good ways to get started.
MCMC offers many services that can help you achieve your best physical and mental well-being. Make sure to ask about our Steve Cohrs Wellness Center, accredited sleep study program, diabetes education program and more during your next visit. Call (507) 836-6111 today!
