Quotation Reference:

Suppose a patient approaches a doctor and describes his illness. Even if the doctor realizes that his problems are not physical but psychological, he cannot state this directly. He might have been drained in the office for more than 12 hours and could not relax his mind and body in between. The natural cure for this problem as this relax quote suggest is to offer him relaxation as the prescription for his mental illness. A patient cannot readily accept the doctor’s prescription to relax and reduce his anxiety, stress at his workplace. His usual reaction would be “This doctor is giving me only advice to take rest instead of medicine – who needs the information anyhow? He may go to another medical practitioner. The doctor who gives a temporary fix by giving sleeping pill without telling that it would help him sleep and relax better becomes a god to him while the physician who conveys the actual cause of the problem and describes ways to eliminates stress and anxiety by having enough rest becomes a philosopher.

I can relax quotes by Paloma Picasso

I don’t have anything to prove anymore. I can relax.

Many people work restlessly to prove to others that they are unyielding and capable of doing something. If you deeply observe their motive behind their effort, it is just to make others jealous and make himself pride. The pride feeling may not sustain for more than a day or two after achieving the same. But the jealousy and hatred he earns from others will live for a lifetime. Relax in your life and do work which pleases you, not which gives you a temporary gain and lifelong hatred.

Relax quotes on productivity by Mark Black

Sometimes the most productive thing you can do is relax.

If you forget to sharpen your saw, you will not be able to cut more trees. To improve your productivity, you need to think about what you are doing when you are doing it. The only way to get some time to think about your activity is to take some rest. When your mind becomes calm, you get more productivity as your tiredness runs away, and fresh energy grows in your body and mind. If man could not sleep peacefully in the night, the day would be disastrous for him. You might have personally noticed this when you had a restless night during overnight bus journeys. Sharpen your saw to increase your productivity.

Difficult to relax Eva Green

Success is very ephemeral. You depend entirely on the desire of others, which makes it difficult to relax.

Who defines what success means? Even before we start thinking about it, others start explaining success in our childhood itself. Our parents put their desire on us by falsely defining success on the basis of money. Media takes the next spot by providing lots of information and defines success for us. They claim that success is nothing but having a beautiful house in city and to buy all the products and fill up our house so that others can see them and aspire to buy for their home. There is no time to relax between the time we are born and the time we die. We have to run behind getting educated, getting good job, getting Porsche flat, sedan car, etc. We buy everything not from our already earned money but from our future efforts. Promising to put your efforts in future is nothing but taking a loan today and signing a contract to pay for the next 10 to 20 years. When you promise to give away your future to others, where will you get time to relax and how will they allow you to rest. Click here to transform your life by getting out of this rat race and live a financially independent peaceful life.
