Numerous studies have proven the impact that slowing down and relaxing can have on people’s lives. Science has shown that calming can relieve symptoms of anxiety, depression, and insomnia - and can alleviate actual pain from numerous medial ailments. Everyone has to deal with stress. It’s a natural part of life, and while most don’t find pleasure in the tensions and pressures of everyday life, a little bit of stress can actually be good for you. It’s when stress becomes persistent (or chronic) that it can begin to negatively affect your health.
