Relaxation Day is celebrated on August 15, 2024. It is a day to sit back, do nothing and relax. Relaxation is the emotional state of low tension, in which there is an absence of arousal that could come from sources such as anger, anxiety, or fear. Relaxation is a form of mild ecstasy coming from the frontal lobe of the brain in which the backward cortex sends signals to the frontal cortex via a mild sedative.
Relaxation helps improve coping with stress. Stress is the leading cause of mental problems and physical problems, therefore feeling relaxed is beneficial for a persons health. When we are stressed, the sympathetic nervous system is activated because we are in a fight-or-flight response mode, over time this could have negative effects on a human body.
