How to use relaxation in a sentence?

  1. Julie Berliner:

    I’ve participated in vape yoga. It’s really amazing. I felt a deeper concentration, relaxation, and clarity. Combining marijuana with an activity or experience, it’s about elevating it.

  2. Jackson Browne:

    Music itself is a great source of relaxation. Parts of it anyway. Working in the studio, that's not relaxing, but playing an instrument that I don't know how to play is unbelievably relaxing, because I don't have any pressure on me.

  3. Vivian Yiu:

    I think there is a concern that the proposed Special Purpose Acquisition Companies regime for Hong Kong is less competitive than that in other jurisdictions, while the Stock Exchange is understandably putting in place these safeguards to prevent abuse and market manipulation, there is perhaps room for relaxation in some areas as retail investors are excluded from investing until the de-SPAC completes.

  4. Bill Murray:

    You know what I always thought was funny as a little kid isn't necessarily the same as what's funny now. Things change and the times change, so it's important for me to figure it out, i think the most important thing is that it's best for the other person. I thought about and that it's not best for the other person, doesn't matter what happens for me. And that gave me a great deal of comfort and relaxation because your brain doesn't operate well when you're in the unknown, when you're thinking like,' well, how can I be so... how can I misperceive ? How can I be so inaccurate and so insensitive,' when you think you're being sensitive to some sensibility that you've had for a long time.

  5. Fritjof Capra, physicist:

    During [these] periods of relaxation after concentrated intellectual activity, the intuitive mind seems to take over and can produce the sudden clarifying insights which give so much joy and delight.
