What are the holidays all about? Some of the words that come to mind are peace, love, brotherhood, sharing, celebrations, gratitude, family and friends. So let’s make sure that we take the time to balance and ensure that these positive elements stay at the forefront. We can do this with R&R: reading and relaxing!
Reading a great book unleashes the imagination that can immediately whisk us away into another world. It doesn’t stop there, the process strengthens imagination, memory and improves analytical skills. By imagining ourselves in the story we can also ignite new emotions. Hence, if we are feeling stressed, our imaginations can transport us to experiencing another place plus the emotions of a character, distancing us from our present lives.
