A simple remedy for turning dull routine of everyday life into pleasure is……lighter moments. These are moments of easy laughter and playful banter. These are the times when you take a short break and share a joke with a friend or a loved one; when you kick up your feet or soak them in warm water and Epsom salts. These are times you steal from your everyday life and prepare a face mask with turmeric and milk. These are the times you drive to your local Amish community to get the freshest milk from grass fed cows.

Everyone needs a mental refreshment now and then. Think about it! Your mind is working all the time. Even when you sleep, the mind is working hard to produce dreams.  There are times when the mind is overloaded, resulting in tensions, worries and anxieties. For the mind to destress itself, it needs lighter moments. So, engage in something the mind takes delight in. No two people are the same. Therefore, decide on what works for you. Even as you plan such an activity, the dopamine levels in your brain start to increase. You start feeling good.

Taking out the time to destress and to regroup is not something frivolous. In many cases it is a lifeline. It will not take away productivity from your life; on the contrary, it will make you more productive. Get up from your desk and stand in the sun for 5-10 minutes. Do some fun stretches in your back yard, or on the park bench. Meditate in the middle of your day. Replace the frown on your face with a beautiful smile.

Lighten up!
