Established in 1985, National Relaxation Day is celebrated on August 15 as a dedicated time to rest and relax. Some may think this seems lazy and indulgent, but too much stress can have negative effects on physical and mental health. As such, making time to relax, whether a few minutes a day or on one designated holiday, will ultimately be to one's benefit.

It is important to note that “relaxation” is a highly individual term – what works wonders for one person might cause increased stress for another (e.g., "am I meditating right?" is a popular Google search). These listings take that into account and offer space for residents to take a break from the chaos of New York City.

Exercise or meditation
Some people find it relaxing to lose themselves in a vigorous workout. Others see nothing relaxing about exercise, preferring to sit in silent meditation. Either way, the bonus rooms in these apartments allow one to create the ultimate relaxation area without running into a neighbor in a building's common areas.

A soothing bath or shower
The word "unplugging" often comes up where relaxation is concerned, and relaxing in the shower or bathtub truly forces one to do so. Not only can a hot shower or bath help one's muscles relax, but a Psychology Today article took a deep dive on the science of "shower thoughts" and how they can inspire creative ideas or solutions to long-standing problems.

Whether it's writing a novel-length entry or simply making a list of things one is grateful for, the benefits of journaling have been well documented. Some have trouble getting into the habit because they don't have the space for it, but it's built right in at these homes.
