Relaxation is all that every living being needs around the world. It isn’t always about staying calm in peace and remaining quiet; in fact, often it’s quite the opposite. But that’s the beauty of looking around the world for inspiration. Find a new way to look at what you really need in order to unwind. You might find a new sport or a new activity that you hadn’t considered before. Or you might see your coffee break in a new light, not as just a way to work on something else but as a way to lower your blood pressure during a hectic day. Many of these activities are done as a community. Reconnect with your neighbours. Set up a regular time for everyone to get together to have fun. Play music, dance a little, and get to know the folks in your town. You might find that everyone benefits from a little rest and relaxation, too.
