There is no doubt Massages are very relaxing for the body. It is a time when the body can totally wind down and reset the stress system to zero.
We live in a stressful and worrisome environment and there are few outlets to allow these strains on the body to be released.
In the absence of access for a Massage the other calmer is Meditation. The simple thing about Meditation it can be done anywhere. The easiest is to sit in a chair and just relax – not sleep – just relax. I would also suggest a cool drink to help soothe the insides.
Meditation does not need to be complicated. Nor does Meditation need to be in a special surrounding in the Lotus position but rather relaxing in a comfortable chair, sitting in the garden or on the beach.
So find your method of relaxation and give your body a rest.
