Did you know stress is linked to six chronic illnesses?  According to American Psychological Association stress can lead to heart disease, cancer, lung ailments, accidents, cirrhosis of the liver and suicide, which is why it is important to have days like today, National Relaxation Day.

While that is probably is not what today’s founder, Sean Moeller, was thinking back in the day in the fourth grade when he thought of the day, I know it is what many of us are thinking about as we learn of more health statistics and reflect on our workload. Let’s not forget the 10 hours a day, we as a society are said to spend online.

It is even said that 75% of doctors visits are related to stress. Today, steal a minute for yourself and consider some of these methods to relax.
