Letting go of stress
When the difficulties of life unfold, people naturally seek ways to help overcome struggle and safeguard feelings of inner harmony. Unfortunately, many lack the understanding of the physical reaction that stress produces in the body.
As a result, most people just aren’t equipped with the tools to fight stress.
During stressful times, our responses to other people can become part a vicious cycle, creating even more and more stress, often posing a serious threat to relationships and making our lives miserable.
Contemplate this while getting in a comfortable position. Take the proper time to ensure that your body can fully relax and stay comfortable for any length of time.
Consider your thoughts and how your body feels right now.
We’re going to inhale through the nose, and exhale through the mouth.
Inhale….exhale. As you exhale, relax.
Inhale relaxation …exhale tension
Inhale calmly… and as you exhale, just let go of all the stress in your body.
Stress is a natural reaction to adversity or tension. Once it gains momentum it can spread like wildfire. However, there are ways to contain and control it.
The human body can do this by activating its natural relaxation response, a state that once again balances the mind and body and releases our mental tension.
Consider where you feel tense, and the relaxation will soften those tight muscles. Continue to let that feeling of serenity expand and spread a sense of peacefulness through your body.
Instead of remaining imprisoned by a stressful life, we will focus on developing the mental tools to consistently produce an experience characterized by a strong sense of well-being. The natural relaxation response has many benefits, including, but not limited to, reduced heart rate, lower blood pressure, relaxed muscles, and natural healing of the mind and body.
