There is nothing more soothing than to sit and relax, unless of course, you choose to sit and relax by the river. Water has an amazing calming effect. Imagine now working by that water, whether it be on a laptop by a lake or on a deck next to your garden pond with a water fall.
After a stressful day it’s nice to simply sit back and think about nothing. The sounds of water rushing over rocks can be very soothing to anyone who has had a stressful day.
The water can actually carry the stress away if you allow it to. Simply find a comfortable spot and sit back and close your eyes and picture the water gathering up all of that stress and carrying it downriver from you.
The sounds of water are often used in meditation and can be very calming to the most harried of nerves. Focus on relaxation and the soothing sounds of water and nature for a great distressing session.
No one works well if they never relax. Relaxation should be a part of everyday life. It can offer you many health benefits as well as be calming.

Just 20 minutes of relaxation each day can improve your blood pressure by lowering it, it can improve your sense of well being and it can improve your immune system.
Many people just keep going and then wonder why they keep getting sick. Those who never seem to get sick know well that if you don’t slow down now and again you’re going to become ill.
Why not schedule some distressing time into your day and focus on just 20 minutes of relaxation? You’ll be amazed at how much better you feel for taking this 20 minutes to just relax.
The human body is a fine tuned machine that requires many things to keep it functioning properly. Imagine if you never rebooted your computer or phone, you’d have a myriad of issues that wouldn’t give you quality service.
In much the same way, your body needs to be rebooted. For some this may be midday, for others, it may not be until later afternoon.
No matter when it is, take a few minutes to relax by the river. Even if it’s just a virtual river in your mind and allow the stress to melt away by the river.
