Restorative activities are activities that replenish and recoup your mind, body, and spirit. Once you begin doing a restorative activity, your body is given an invitation, a signal, that it is safe to decrease production and increase restoration. Spending enough time in the restoration phase increases your ability to face challenging experiences and to better enjoy your life.
