I haven’t posted here in a while, I guess I haven’t really been feeling the positivity of it all, but I wanted to pop in today and share some quotes I found about relaxing, because I just thought they were kind of nice.
3 Classic Relaxation Quotes
“Your mind will answer most questions if you learn to relax and wait for the answer.” – William S. Burroughs
I like this quote because it made me stop and think about all the times I’ve been really struggling to find a solution to a problem, but I was so caught up in the problem I couldn’t see a way through. Then, when I finally just let go, the answer would come to me in a dream or out of blue when I was doing something totally unrelated. Have you ever had that happen? I’ve heard it’s really common – kind of a ‘you can’t see the forest for the trees’ kind of a thing.
“The time to relax is when you don’t have time for it.” – Sydney J. Harris
This one is like the second half of the thought from the first quote, because when you’re under stress or feeling sad, that’s when you most need answers, and it’s when you can’t possibly find them because it’s so hard to relax and let your mind think about anything other than the problem. It just feels like you have to work harder, and that ‘power through it’ mindset can be the thing holding back from finding a solution.
“When the solution is simple, God is answering.” – Albert Einstein
I was struggling to find the right quote to end this post – I should have known I would find it in Einstein’s words. So, here’s why I picked this as the last of my 3 quotes about relaxation to share with you today; when you just relax, and be still, and let yourself move and think outside the parameters of your current existence; when the solution to something that has been making you struggle and ache just comes to you out of the blue, when it’s finally clear, and it’s finally simple, then you know the answer came from a source bigger than yourself.
