Recharging involves getting enough rest, relaxation, and sleep. A good balance of these can improve your physical and emotional health.
Why is it Important to Recharge?
To recharge in Whole Health means to re-energize by sleeping, resting, and relaxing. To live well and enjoy life, your body needs to have enough of these each day.
Sleep, rest, and relaxation refresh your body and mind. Both your body and mind need enough sleep to work properly. A good balance between activity and rest improves your health and well-being.
