Relaxation techniques are helpful tools for coping with stress and promoting long-term health by slowing down the body and quieting the mind.
Such techniques generally entail:
- Refocusing attention (for example, noticing areas of tension);
- Increasing body awareness;
- And exercises (such as directing the mind and meditation) to connect the body and mind together.
Relaxation exercises, though very helpful, are not a substitute for proper medical care for significant medical concerns.
Relaxation exercises can seem deceptively simple at first, but using them well when stress is high requires practice.
Relaxation techniques train your mind to become less responsive to stress and readjust your mind so that your baseline level of stress is lower. Practicing the relaxation techniques enables you to maintain the calm and peaceful feelings you obtain during and just after a relaxation exercise throughout your day.
