Your health, a test, a job interview, a speaking assignment, public places, etc. Sometimes these things can bring about stress for people. Especially people suffering from Fibromyalgia. This is because people who suffer from Fibromyalgia suffer from heightened anxiety.
So what do we do about it? Relax. It sounds so easy. I mean the word alone sounds so relaxing. Relaxing means different things to different people. How does one attain relaxation in today’s stressful world?
Well, it would be a lot easier if I told you to be stressed. That’s easier to accomplish.
Though this is true, relaxation is a state of mind. The key to relaxing is to learn to relax your mind.
Sound easy? Well, it can be, with the right tools. The important part to remember is that you possess the power in you to be able to relax. It’s up to you. Your brain is able to create this relaxing environment.
Your brain can actually play an active role in being able to relax simply by focusing. What am I talking about? If you find yourself focusing on stressful situations and experiences that could happen, you are not doing yourself any favors. You will be tense all the time.
One reason why people give the advice to public speakers to picture the audience in their underwear is to get them to relax their thinking and focus on something not tense. If you are too focused on your health, you will be stressed and this can lead to poor health and more susceptibility of diseases.
So what can you do to help you really relax? Focus on one thing. Yep, only one thing. Using deep breathing techniques during this focus session will help you. Continue this practice and take a few deep breaths and focus on your one thing. This will help you to keep your mind clear of anything else and reach a deep relaxation point. Closing your eyes will help you achieve this sense of relaxation.
Try it and you will see great improvement to your stress levels.
