When you ask people what it means to relax, most will answer that relaxing is something you play to do later － you do it on vacation, when you retire, or when you get everything done. This means, of course, that most other time （95% of your life）should be spend nervous, restless, rushed, and mad. Could this explain why so many of us operate as if life were one great big emergency? Most of us put off relaxation until our “in-basket” is empty. Of course, it never is.
It is useful to think of relaxation as a quality of heart that you can own on a regular basis rather than something reserved for some later time. You can relax now. It’s helpful to remember that relaxed people can still be super achievers and, in fact, that relaxation and creativity go hand in hand. When I’m feeling tired, for example, I don’t even try to write. But when I feel relaxed, my writing flows quickly and easily.
Being more relaxed includes training yourself to react differently to the drama of life. It comes, in part, from reminding yourself over and over again（with loving kindness and patience）that you have a choice in how you respond to life. You can learn to relate to your thinking as well as your situation in new ways.
