Relaxation techniques can do wonders for your health. Relaxation promotes balance, flow and harmony in your energy field. It clears your mind, balances your emotions and promotes physical wellness. In fact, de-stressing is one of the best things you can do for your overall well-being. Learning and regularly practicing some relaxation techniques is a fantastic investment in your quality of life.
On an energetic level, being relaxed allows our energy to shift more easily to a state of healthy balance and flow.
On a physical level, it feels great and allows our bodies’ natural self-healing and restoration processes to work like they’re supposed to.
Most of us think of R & R as a luxury. Something for vacation, or that spa visit we’re saving for.
But it’s so much more than a luxury. In fact, I believe that it’s a necessity--so good for you that I wish there were a branch of medicine devoted to it.
It’s not that stress is all bad. A moderate, temporary amount can actually be good for you. And as we all know, at least some stress is involved in almost all good outcomes. Think of having children; getting a new job; starting something new. It seems almost necessary for growth and change.
Good stress like this is temporary and manageable.
The bad kind of stress feels overwhelming, and it doesn’t let up for days, weeks, months, even years. This ongoing, heavy tension is a contributor to many kinds of illness and disease, not to mention mental suffering.
Relaxing, on the other hand, turns off our body’s response to stress — with remarkable benefits for our physical, mental, emotional, and energetic health. Here are some of the good things that it does for you:
See what I mean? It sounds like the secret key to health nirvana, a veritable fountain of youth.
So, then, what’s stopping you? Unwind!
What? It’s not that easy?
Well, of course not, with all those stress hormones pumping through your system.
But there are ways to learn to dial down tension and anxiety and
become calmer and more peaceful. Some of these relaxation techniques
are incredibly simple.
I bet you've got your own list of tried and true techniques, too. Make a commitment to using them!
And as a side-note, if you're doing energy healing for other people, remember that just getting them to relax is one of the best treatments you can give them.
