Deep breathing is a simple but very effective method of relaxation. Taking long, controlled breath can help calm the mind and relax the body.
Relaxation imagery helps you think of a scene, place or event that you remember as safe, peaceful, restful, beautiful and happy. This imagined place is a retreat from stress and pressure.
Meditation consciously relaxes the body and focuses thoughts on one thing for a sustained period. This serves to occupy your mind, diverting it from the problems that are causing you stress.
Progressive Muscular Relaxation (PMR)
This is the tensing and releasing of muscle groups. This allows the muscles to fully relax, thereby allowing you to be more comfortable and relaxed.
Yoga can help you achieve your goals with a clearer head, a more in-tune body and a renewed spirit. It combines many of the relaxation techniques and maintains a connection of mind, body and spirit
Life can be very stressful. At the end of the day, we find that we have very little time for ourselves. You can practice relaxation any time, anyplace and it is easier that you think to include in your everyday life!
