The fast paced modern life has brought people considerable pressure. How can I reduce tension and relax my body and mind? The following ten moves can help you.
Take a nap: Learn to take a nap at home, in the office, or even in the car. It only takes 10 minutes to refresh yourself.
Imagination: By imagining your favorite places, such as the sea, mountains, etc., relax your brain; Concentrate your thoughts on "seeing, smelling, and listening" to the imaginary objects, and gradually enter the country, thereby achieving the goal of spiritual relaxation.
Massage: Close your eyes tightly, use your fingertips to vigorously massage the forehead and back neck, rotating regularly in the same direction; Don't rub aimlessly.
Breathing: Quickly take shallow breaths, slowly inhale, hold your breath, and then exhale, lasting eight beats at each stage, in order to become more relaxed.
Abdominal breathing: Lie flat on the floor, face up, relax naturally, and close your eyes tightly. Exhale, exhale all the air from the lungs, bulge out the abdomen, then tighten the abdomen, inhale, and finally relax to restore the abdomen to its original state. After a few minutes of normal breathing, repeat this process.
Get rid of routines: Try different methods often and do things you don't usually do, such as jumping up and down stairs with your feet.
Singing in the shower: When taking a shower every day, let go of your singing voice and try to lengthen the tone. Because singing loudly requires deep breathing constantly, which can relax and make you feel happy.
Develop interest: Develop interest in various activities and enjoy them to the fullest.
Stretching exercise: Stretching exercise can relax the muscles of the whole body, which is very beneficial for eliminating tension.
Relaxation Response: Sit comfortably in a quiet place, close your eyes, relax your muscles, and silently breathe in and out, mainly taking deep breaths.
