Top Ten Quotes On The Importance of Relaxation and Fun
Do you take time out of your busy day to enjoy moments of relaxation and fun?
Many studies have shown that engaging in recreational activities increases your life satisfaction, self-confidence and well-being.
Fun and relaxation doesn’t have to take too much time. It can be as simple as taking a few minutes to read a novel, to play solitaire on the computer or even a ten minute walk around the block. I enjoy reading the comics and watching funny cat videos on YouTube.
