The power of relaxation

Believe it or not, the body’s natural state is relaxation. However, day after day we subject it to a busy schedule, riddled with setbacks, stress and tension. Therefore, time set aside daily for relaxation is recommended, because if we manage to have a clear, firm and stable mind, we will significantly improve many aspects of our body.

What are the benefits of relaxation?

  • It reduces fatigue and favours a deeper rest.
  • It decreases the heart rate and blood pressure, as well as the risk of cardiovascular problems.
  • It increases blood flow to the body's muscles, eliminating tension.
  • It slows down the breathing rate.
  • It decreases unhealthy emotional responses, such as stress, anxiety and frustration, leaving space for an increase in energy and optimism.
  • It improves our power of concentration and memory.

In addition, when we feel good on the inside, we glow on the outside. The same goes for your skin; when it is not exposed to stress, it looks healthier, younger and more radiant. ☺

How does relaxation affect your skin?

  • It provides greater protection and hydration.
  • It favours oxygenation and production of collagen, elastin and other properties that restore vitality to the skin.
  • It makes our skin appear fresher, softer and brighter, and with less wrinkles.

How to achieve mindfulness?

The first step is to dedicate time to yourself. You must find a peaceful, calm space, and above all somewhere you feel comfortable. For example, in a park, in a café or even on the beach. Try to relax your body and see how, little by little, you clear your mind!
