Stress Management Relaxation Techniques Are Easy To Find

Jan 24, 2008
Most us, including me, are somewhat confused or surprised when we learn that the events of our daily lives that cause us tension and even anxiety are not actually stress or stressful events. Stress is what occurs in our bodies, we may start breathing fast, our heart rate goes up, you may feel a bit dizzy, or any number of thing that are your reaction to the tension or anxiety events that are getting to you.

Problems arise when there are too many stressors at one time or when stress is prolonged, then it results in negative symptoms. The other thing about stress is that some of the very problems that result from stress can also lead to stress.

Stress management relaxation techniques are available and often simple to do. However it is important that you both understand what "stress" is and understand the role that stress plays in your life. After all stress CAN be good for you, but to much stress is not. Lucky for you stress is "the way that your body reacts to certain events", if the way you are reacting is not help, or unhealthy, you can change it.

Stress, the actual happenings in the body, may mean any number or things, including, shallow breathing, an increased heart rate, an elevation of your blood pressure, problems with your stomach and digestive system (you may need to rush to the bathroom, or you may get constipated), etc, etc.

Long term stress and/or the body being unable to relax and calm down after the stressors and tension have diminished, or gone away entirely can bring even worse physical problems, tightness of the chest (including a heart attack), migraine or tension headaches, difficulty sleeping and can lead to health issues and illnesses.

There are several stress management relaxation techniques available and many of them simple techniques that you yourself can do on your own whenever the need or desire should arises:

* Learn how to say 'NO" to people. Many people get so busy doing things, work, family events, parties, etc., etc., and end up having 'too many things' to do, no time to just sit back at home, relax and read a book.

* A lot of people find that a few minutes out of their day taken to sit back, relax, and explore the depths of their mind can be immensely helpful when it comes to putting things into perspective an organizing your days in a less hectic matter.

* Another thing that you might want to look to for relief from stress is hypnosis or meditation. A lot of people find that a few minutes out of their day taken to sit back, relax, and explore the depths of their mind can be immensely helpful when it comes to putting things into perspective an organizing your days in a less hectic matter.

* Their are many kinds of relaxation techniques. Meditation, biofeedback, music therapy, and relaxation self hypnosis tapes or CDs (easier and faster than learning meditation or biofeedback).

These are just a few techniques that can prove to be useful when you are trying to find ways around your stress problems. If you feel overwhelmed by stress, and don't find these stress management relaxation techniques you may want to speak to a therapist in order to find out some other types of things that you can do to remedy the problem.
