“Recharge” sounds like something you do with a cell phone or other electronic device. “Recharge” for people is very similar. It refers to sleep, rest, and relaxation, which gives us energy. Our bodies need to have enough of these each day, so that we can live well and enjoy life. Recharging involves getting enough rest, relaxation, and sleep. A good balance of these can improve your physical and emotional health.
