Everyone needs a day off every once in a while. They don't call it a mental health day for nothing! A break from your day-to-day stresses, be it work, kids, school or anything else, can be very beneficial to your well-being. Not only will it help to lower your stress, it can also lower your blood pressure, risk of heart disease, and boost your memory and concentration.
Dr. Oz knows how far a day of rest and relaxation can go, and he has just the prescription you'll need to get that time to recharge! All you need to do is print out your own copy of his Rx, take it in to work, school – or even to your husband – and let them know that a day off can help benefit your health. Even if this note only serves as a reminder that a little "me-time" is something you need to work into your day to help keep your mind and body at ease, make sure to take some time for yourself more often!
