The Art of Relaxation.
Modern man must learn to break the tension of daily living or the tensions will break him.
He must learn to bend with the stresses and strains like a tree in the wind. He must develop the resiliency of spirit to spring erect again after the storm has passed.
He first relaxes his mind by thinking thoughts of peace, quietness and tranquility. He mentally pictures the placid pool amidst whispering pines and puts himself in tune with nature’s calming mood.
He recognizes that relaxed living is a way of life and strives to manage body, mind, heart and spirit as efficiently as he manages his business.
~ Wilferd A. Peterson, The Art of Living (1961)
