An Affirmation: I Will Allow My Mind to Relax

I Allow My Mind to Relax
Art by Adwaita Das for The Health Collective

The mind is working non-stop. Apart from wakeful hours, even in sleep, consciousness continues to process information, especially if one has a lot of thoughts already going on running. The brain needs rest though. The human being needs respite for both body and mind. But most people have been taught to never take a break or made to feel guilty about relaxing. In such conditions, one can give one’s brain this permission to rest, reiterating it with compassion whenever required.”
