RELAXATION tips

PHASE 1.

Preventative measure - to protect the body from the effects of stress and tension.

PHASE 2.

Treatment to relieve stress in conditions such as, tension headaches, hypotension etc.

PHASE 3.

Coping skill - to calm the mind and allow thinking to become clearer.

Spontaneous relaxation following muscular tension occurs very slowly - even sleep may not induce total relaxation. This means the body is under continual increasing AND sustained muscular tension. This becomes painful and extremely tiring, holding tense muscles is hard work.

What does this mean?

Muscular tension can build up over many years, BUT reducing stress can reverse it.
Muscular tension is a relaxation method and coping skill, it requires practice.
Tense muscles can lead to other problems such as faulty breathing patterns, so by learning effective ways of relaxation we can then work on breathing patterns.
Muscular relaxation does not mean that mental relaxation is happening as well. This is another skill.
Muscular relaxation is effective and the result will be one of relaxation and calm.
You will NOT loose consciousness, and it is not a form of hypnosis.

 

 

Is meditation for everyone? Is meditation for everyone? Generally yes, especially at this level, which is very much 'try it and see'. The only note of caution I'd add is that if you are going through a particularly difficult emotional time, you shouldn't expect an introductory meditation practice to suddenly make everything fine again.

You'll have more to work with, but it will feel harder at first. Equally, if you're suffering from serious depression, schizophrenia or other mental difficulties, take medical advice before starting meditation. It may not help you at all, or your medication may make it harder for you to do the practice.
