Have you ever noticed how animals know instinctively how to relax? The cat who stretches out full length on the floor just because it feels so good. The dog who sleeps upside down because that’s the most comfortable position to be in. The horse who chooses just the right sun-spot to take a nap because the day is quiet and the sun feels so yummy.
By studying and embracing our animal companions and their natural inclination to seek relaxation, we can be influenced to do the same. Finding time within our day to cultivate relaxation of body, mind and spirit keeps us not only healthy, but balanced and happy.
