Meditation and Relaxation

Fear is a natural emotion and part of our life. Relaxation techniques can bring fear and stress relive.

To effectively combat fear we need to activate the body natural relaxation response.

You can do this:

a)     By practicing relaxation techniques including deep breathing; visualization; meditation; and yoga.

b)     By performing rhythmic exercise such as running; cycling; jogging or mindful walking.

Finding ways to fit these activities into your life can help reduce everyday stress and boost your energy and mood.

The relaxation response brings our nervous system back into balance.

As part of our life fear becomes overwhelming when not temporary. We need to fight back using relaxation and meditation techniques.

Practicing deep breathing meditation is helping:

a)     Sit comfortably with your back straight and put one hand on your stomach and the other on chest.

b)     Try to inhale and exhale very slowly.

c)      Now place one hand on your solar plexus and one on your heart.

d)     Breathe into the solar plexus, taking several slow breaths as you relax that area.

Use this technique to relax the heart.

But, if fear is still present, make space for it, let fear arise and allow it to release.

When you use these techniques you have to be in a quiet environment and a comfortable position.

NOTE: If you are worried of doing this by yourself than go and be with other people, take yoga class.
