RELAXATION

In Praise of Slowness...

Relaxation is not a task but a rhythm...

We don’t just relax because it is fun; there is actually a really strong connection between relaxation and both our mental and physical health. Don’t believe us? Just ask science because more and more of it’s studies are uncovering the potential causes of stress and why relaxation is important in managing them.

There are no beeping, overscheduled smartphones in Campodimele, Italy, known as the Village of Eternal Youth. Only fresh mountain air, plentiful sunshine, and low stress.

Relaxation is crucial to living well. People in Longevity Hot Spots also lead busy lives, yet they are stress-free because they recognize the rejuvenating power of regular rest, respite, and relaxation. 

A profound connection to nature also plays a central role in every hot spot corner, as does the simplicity of life’s daily rhythms. Nature is restorative. It offers powerful healing qualities and a welcome way to unwind. Spending time outdoors nourishes our bodies and our souls. So do music, meditation, and moments of quiet prayer.

Regular holidays are good but not enough.  We need to introduce a rhythm of relaxation into our lives and to do this we almost certainly have to have a paradigm shift and a change of belief in this area.  We tend to think it noble when we work harder and longer but in terms of living in harmony with our eco-system it is a completely wrong belief.  Working hard is good but equally important is good sleep and regular relaxation.  It restores all the functions you need to be your best and then live and purpose filled life.  When you are alert, healthy and fully alive you create more in less time.

Ignite Life understand this and so therefore we are creating opportunities for you to change your paradigm in this area and also partnering with other experts in this field, to bring you the best resources to help you on this journey towards mindful rest and relaxation becoming a natural rhythm within your life so, keep checking this page for new and exciting programs and ideas.
