Relaxation techniques: For what benefits
Today it is necessary to learn to relax because of the stressful lifestyle. Indeed, the Western way of life is based on a particularly rewarding vision of the activity. Being active is good, but being active to the point of not being able to stop and endanger your inner health as well as that of those close to you, it is less so.
Stress and anxiety are the starting point for several health problems, including:
- Weight gain ;
- Heart disease;
- A weakened immune system;
- The Depression ;
- Mood swings;
- Insomnia and other sleep problems;
Relaxation is an easy notion to grasp. It is indeed a simple bodily process (simple but not intuitive). It aims to release the pressure and tension that we may have inside, thus reducing the stress (but also other emotions such as anger, anguish and anxiety) that we feel. This in order to open up to a state of total plenitude.
Relaxation comes in many forms. It is practiced in various ways, called relaxation techniques, the most effective of which is undoubtedly bio-dynamic relaxation. From simple deep breathing to bio-dynamic relaxation to meditation, all the techniques have the same and unique goal: to help you reduce your stress and anxiety levels so that you experience well-being.
These relaxation techniques are easy to practice. Indeed, they are inexpensive in relation to the benefits provided. In addition, it is possible to practice them anywhere and at any time of the day.
Relaxation techniques: overview of the different methods.
What are the different relaxation techniques
1.Sport as a relaxation technique
No need to repeat it: sport is excellent for your health. In addition, regular physical activity is anything but bad for your body and mind. It's even ideal if you want to let off steam and let go, all while clearing your head. If you want to relax, it can be very interesting to make time in your schedule in order to practice regular physical activity.
Generally speaking, associating sport with one's life is always a good thing to do. It makes people happy in many ways, mainly by releasing endorphins, hormones that have the particularity of providing a feeling of well-being when secreted.
2. Relaxation through Yoga
Yoga has many benefits, one of which is reducing stress. Indeed, there are mechanisms in the practice of yoga that influence a person's overall stress level. It is clinically proven that practicing this activity increases mindfulness, acts on a person's mood and promotes self-kindness. So by being completely focused on the present moment, you will be more easily in a good mood. Nothing better to fight against stress and tension.
Yoga also has the advantage of making a real connection between body and mind, in addition to being easy to practice because it does not require special equipment or special space. It can be practiced anywhere and anytime. It is not your schedule that will stand in the way.
3. Breathing to relax
When panic suddenly sets in your life, it becomes almost impossible to control your mind and keep a cool head. In such circumstances, it is beneficial to breathe deeply.
Controlling your breathing will immediately give you a feeling of calm and at the same time lower your stress and anxiety. This can be very useful if you need to take a test, exam or job interview for example.
Yoga relies heavily on deep breathing exercises. These are 2 relaxation techniques that go hand in hand. This is why they are among the most recommended.
4. Relaxation by adopting daily routines
You can also work on building a healthier lifestyle to relieve stress in your day-to-day life. For this, you must combine these 3 elements:
- Play sports ;
- Eat better;
- Sleep better.
These habits are important because they work for the long term. Indeed, integrating them into your daily routine will help you increase your resilience to stress. You will then be less vulnerable to it, and more prepared to channel it when the first symptoms appear.
A quick stop on diet as a relaxation technique
Depending on how you eat, your brain will be doing more or less well. Indeed, the brain energy that you send to it depends to a large extent on the diet of your body.
Healthy eating is one of the best ways to to manage stress. So think about it the next time you sit down. Likewise, rest is also essential for your well-being. So it is in your best interests to avoid lack of sleep, or poor quality sleep.
Reserve time for those you love
The key to happiness is in the hands of those we love. It is very important for your mental and even physical health to take time for your family and friends.
It may even be wise to combine this necessity with the practice of one of the relaxation techniques that we are discussing. Indeed, why not ride a bike with friends? or go out for a walk with your partner?
Likewise, do not hesitate to adopt a pet of the dog / cat type. Some studies show a correlation between the presence of pets and reduced anxiety in a person. The harmless act of stroking a cat, for example, would lower blood pressure.
To eliminate stress, learn to organize yourself
If like most people you are almost always overwhelmed, it might be time to get organized and learn to prioritize.
For example, you can take a moment in the evening just before bed to make a list of the most important things to do the next day. As soon as you wake up, get down to the tasks you wrote down the day before. Once these are done, you can move on to other tasks.
Doing so will help you be more relaxed during your days. Organization can play a vital role as a relaxation technique in that it saves you from getting lost in the midst of 'things to do'. So you will be less stressed. There are many tools available to help you be more organized: use them.
As we have just seen, there are many ways to relax. All these relaxation techniques have in common to fight against stress and to fight anxiety. Although they pursue a common goal, they do not meet the same success. There are some that are more effective, and there are some that are less so.
For about thirty years now, there has been a revolutionary relaxation technique that provides as many benefits as the combination of the techniques mentioned above: It is Bio-dynamic Relaxation.
