Functional Focused Relaxation
Stressors can be a powerful motivator for function. Why did you eat? Because you felt hungry. Why did you get your work in? Boss was being bossy. The stress these stressors create push us into GO MODE.
However, we humans do not function well with constant stress. The heightened level that we enter begins to drain us mentally and damage us physically. Worst of all, we easily get locked into this state.
Massage focused on relaxation is a fantastic way to draw you out of GO MODE (sympathetic nervous response) and into rest mode (parasympathetic nervous response). You can then respond better to the pushy boss.
(Side note: Getting your boss a massage may ALSO improve your stress levels)
