Relaxation

1103442787_8ea5c6da5eDid you know 30 minutes of regular relaxation can improve your well being and can help to have a positive impact on all areas of your life?

Our modern culture is just so busy, often challenging, with non-stop stimuli causing us to frequently fall into overdrive or consistently live on automatic pilot? This can lead to an increase in adrenaline causing a variety of physical symptoms such as:

[ezcol_1third]Racing heart-rate[/ezcol_1third] [ezcol_1third]Fast & shallow breathing[/ezcol_1third] [ezcol_1third_end]Palpitations[/ezcol_1third_end]

[ezcol_1third]Churning stomach[/ezcol_1third] [ezcol_1third]Feeling sick[/ezcol_1third] [ezcol_1third_end]Butterflies[/ezcol_1third_end]

[ezcol_1third]Dry mouth[/ezcol_1third] [ezcol_1third]Tightness in throat[/ezcol_1third] [ezcol_1third_end]Hot & sweating[/ezcol_1third_end]

When this happens our thoughts and feelings often influence our behavior. Some common behavioral reactions to modern life are:

  • Losing your temper
  • Stopping doing the things you enjoy doing
  • Avoiding going into particular situations
  • Lack of sleep
  • Difficulties with concentration
  • Drinking, smoking or eating more than you want to

Through guided relaxation using focused breathing, muscle relaxation and visual imagery enjoy the simple pleasures relaxation brings. An additional benefit is that with practice you will be able to use them independently at home and anytime you feel anxious or stressed.
