In brief: Go for a
Walk, a swim, a bike ride.
Yoga, tai chi, meditate. Soak in a hot tub, aroma therapy. Do something different, something fun. Laugh! better yet, make these things a part of your daily life. Live, laugh, love.

In brief: So Much!!
The most important part of relaxing is a) doing something you really love and b) giving yourself permission to take the time to de-stress without feeling guilty.
We get so wrapped up in always doing something that we feel guilty in relaxing. I would agree with dr. Uhrich on everything she wrote. I also have a ton more info on stress and stress reduction on my website (www.Thehealthymind.Com).
