Slap af det er søndag. Læs en bog og stress ned. Det er dokumenteret effektivt!

Til alle jer stressramte, læs lige her hvad The Telegraph skriver:

Reading can help reduce stress

Reading is the best way to relax and even six minutes can be enough to reduce the stress levels by more than two thirds, according to new research.

And it works better and faster than other methods to calm frazzled nerves such as listening to music, going for a walk or settling down with a cup of tea, research found.

Reading worked best, reducing stress levels by 68 per cent, said cognitive neuropsychologist Dr David Lewis.

Psychologists believe this is because the human mind has to concentrate on reading and the distraction of being taken into a literary world eases the tensions in muscles and the heart.

Subjects only needed to read, silently, for six minutes to slow down the heart rate and ease tension in the muscles, he found. In fact it got subjects to stress levels lower than before they started.
Dr Lewis, who conducted the test, said: “Losing yourself in a book is the ultimate relaxation.

Noget, der også virker mod stress: Dolce far niente, the sweetness of doing nothing; den søde lediggang

  1. 🙂 ja! At læse og lediggang har givet mig de skønneste ferier! At fordybe mig i en anden verden, og alligevel vende tilbage til mit eget køkken og finde alt hvor jeg kender det…. Det giver ro og udvider de dybe horisonter…
