Sometimes it seems like the more effort we put into shutting down our busy brains, the harder it is to accomplish. Jam-packed, stressful days make true relaxation challenging for many of us, and we often forgo winding down after work because of time demands. If taking a 90-second vacation doesn't always work for you, look through pictures from previous vacations to help get you to a state of relaxation.
While you are flipping through those memories, try your best to recall the little things you loved about a particular trip: special moments shared with your friends or loved ones, things that made you laugh, and the happy feeling of getting away from it all. The simple act of revisiting your memories will take your mind off of your hectic day and to-do list while reminding you of the good things in your life.
