Do you feel relaxed?
Maybe nature is your thing. Or perhaps it's a Netflix binge.
The Gorillamen are laid back enough that we're not going to tell you how to relax.
(But if you wanted to kick back and listen to this episode while stretched out on the couch or something, we would not be opposed...)

We kick it off with the first time we were aware of this concept called relaxing. After that, we talk about how we go about relaxing -- and the last time we really relaxed.
Find out how important relaxing is to us before we piss on a popular Internet meme: that which claims nature is as effective -- or better -- than antidepressants.
We chat about if we believe people have a harder time relaxing now vs. a few decades ago...and why we hold those beliefs. And why not talk about the role recreational drugs and alcohol play in in relaxing for many people?
Going back to an earlier point, we discuss if there's anything wrong with those needing prescription medication in order to relax. Also: the role technology plays in people relaxing...or not relaxing.
We talk a bit about meditation and if one can relax too much.
And we wrap it all up 50 years in the future, speculating if we think people will be more (or less) relaxed.
