As busy and frantic as our lives can be, it often seems like we’ve got no time to stop even when we’re unwell. The ability to have ourselves wind down or even switch off completely is something that seems to be harder to do than ever before. There is, however, the distinct possibility that this way of living - fast and frantic - isn’t helping us in the long or short term, but in fact harming the quality of life that we have when we’re not working or doing life’s daily tasks.
