Three Not-so-common Ideas for Relaxation

We must rest and relax to be productive, healthy, and happy.

Sleep is the most natural and essential way we do this.

But we often relax by taking vacations and breaks from the mundane.

Here are unusual ways to do it.

1/ Reverse Relaxation – What if relaxation wasn’t about slowing down or being still but doing the opposite? Like finding relaxation in high-energy activities like skydiving, roller coaster rides, or competitive sports.

2/ Sensory Overload – Imagine a world where people intentionally overload their senses to relax. This could be using advanced technology to experience overwhelming sounds, sights, tastes, and smells to achieve a state of relaxation. White noise videos and the likes on YouTube are a part of this phenomenon.

3/ Digital Detox Retreat – In a world where we are constantly plugged in, sometimes the best way to relax is to unplug. Through a digital detox retreat, we offer ourselves a chance to disconnect from technology and reconnect with nature, ourselves, and others. These retreats involve hiking, meditation, yoga, and workshops on mindfulness and self-care.
