Relaxation in the New Year

relax Starting February 8th, celebrations for the Chinese New Year will begin all over the world. 2016 is the year of the Red Fire Monkey. A New Year brings the opportunity to reflect and sweep away any misfortunes or hardships from the previous year and start fresh. People born in the year of the monkey will find a balanced lifestyle will improve their health conditions.

Use this time to bring friends and family together, celebrate, and begin working towards a more balanced lifestyle. It is a time to refocus, recharge, and relax.

We’ve put together a few ways to help you relax and recharge as we begin a new year:

  • Music & soothing sounds: Whether it’s classical music, your favorite rock song, or soothing nature sounds, music and sound can help you relax while lowering blood pressure, anxiety levels, and your heart rate.
  • Massage: Relax your neck, shoulders, back, and legs to calm your mind and help you recharge. Massage chairs and massage cushions offer personalized comfort and relief in your home or on the go. Massage benefits include reducing stress hormone levels and chronic pain, increasing circulation and improving sleep quality, to name a few. Bring luck, prosperity, and relaxation into your home with the DreamWave Massage Chair by Inada in red leather and receive 48-month financing.
  • Meditation: Just a few minutes a day can help ease anxiety and make you more resilient to stress. Sit with both of your feet planted on the floor and repeat a positive thought or mantra – silently or out loud – such as “I feel at peace.” Syncing your breathing to your mantra will help you focus.
  • Restorative Yoga: This type of yoga sequence uses props to help calm and relax your entire body and mind. Yoga is a good tool for learning and practicing ways to find relaxation, on and off the mat.

Relax The Back wishes everyone a Happy Chinese New Year. May this New Year bring you all good luck, good fortune, and good health!
