Relaxation and Meditation Exercises

Life, health, even weight control is ultimately about balance.

After a day's hectic schedule of meeting deadlines, attending meetings, preparing different documents, and so on, you will always be looking forward to going home and relaxing.

There are many ways to relax, and one method that is quite effective is meditation.

How will you do it? Perhaps you've already heard other people talking about meditation. It's not as hard as you think.

The idea revolves around focusing your thoughts to a certain relaxing thing over a sustained time. This way, your mind is able to rest, and your thoughts about stressful things are diverted elsewhere.

Your body can recuperate and relax through meditation; toxin build ups are also cleared away.

You will notice that while you're meditating your breathing slows, your blood pressure is reduced, the muscles relax, anxiety and irritability are reduced, stressful thoughts and lactic acid are eliminated, clears your way of thinking, headaches and stress are also lessened, and you can now concentrate and focus fully.

Focusing on just a single thing is the true essence of such activity. This is an active process unlike that of hypnosis.

All your mental faculties should be concentrated on the meditation's subject.

Meditation is usually done for about 30 minutes, so be sure that you're in a comfortable position.

You can lie on your bed, sit on your favorite couch, or choose any position that you're really comfortable with.

You can focus on different things when you're meditating like breathing, an object, a sound, or even imagery.

Whichever you choose, it is very important to remain focused.

If you experience any distractions and external thoughts, strive hard to drift them out.

This is natural when you're just a beginner; you will always find your thoughts wandering but as you continue practicing meditation, you will soon improve.

You can try these relaxation exercises and incorporate it in your meditation so that you can achieve total relaxation.

1. Tense Relax – start by clenching your fists, and then pull forearms firmly against the upper arms.

Keep your muscles tensed, as well as that of your leg muscles. Now, your jaws must also be clenched and your eyes shut tightly.

While holding those tense, breathe deeply and then hold for about 5 seconds. Then let go of everything at once. Feel the sensations while your tensions are being released.

2. Heaviness/ Warmth – this is done by feeling your legs and feet getting heavier and warmer by the second. Imagine that it's like wearing lead boots.

After that, try to imagine that your central body portion is also getting warm… warmer and relaxed.

Tell yourself that you're forehead is getting cooler and relaxed. Breath easy and regularly. Just feel all the heaviness and warmth spread over your entire body.

3. Ideal Relaxation - close your eyes and try to create an ideal relaxation spot inside your mind.

Choose any place whether it's imagined or real and furnish the place according to your own preference and style.

Wear comfortable clothes and imagine that you're going to that place.

Feel mellow and at ease in your imagined and ideal relaxation place. Enjoy that special moment for about a minute.

These are just simple relaxation and meditation exercises that you can do. If you're feeling stressed and tensed, do these exercises.
