1. Breathing Exercises

Breathing techniques are one of the most powerful ways of relaxing your body. It is simple to practice and can be done anywhere. You just need to sit down and focus on your breathing. Take a deep, cleansing breath, hold it for a second or two and then release it slowly. Repeat this process for four to five times and you’ll find your body muscles relaxing and your mind calm.

As you practice this technique, you’ll disengage yourself from the distracting thoughts and noises and focus on your breathing. This helps slow down your rapid heart rate and reduce the level of active stress hormones in the body. It also goes a long way in improving your mood.

2. Cognizant Meditation

Meditation has recently gained popularity among many people who deal with stressful situations on a daily basis. Meditation has proven to be an effective way to relieve stress and cool down those rapidly working brain cells.

Meditation involves you sitting down in a comfortable position, closing your eyes, and taking deep breaths, such that your attention is only focused on inhaling and exhaling and not on your thoughts. It involves bringing your attention back to your breathing process from its wandering thoughts.

3. Practicing Visualization

Visualization is another technique of relaxation. It involves you imagining scenes that brings peace and helps relieve tension in the body and increases concentration. The mental image that you create can be of anything that calms you down.

A scenery, a calm seashore, a favorite sunset spot anything which requires the full experiences of your senses including the sense of touch, smell, sound. For example, visualizing a beach where you can hear the seagulls, see the sunset, smell the scent of waves crashing on shore, etc.

4. Progressive Body Scan

In this technique, you focus on each and every part of your body, starting from your toe and then moving upward right from your shoulders, to your eyes, trying to relax each and every group of muscles slowly. This boosts your mind and body connection and increases your awareness about your body.

5. Yoga and Tai Chi

Yoga and tai chi are the ancient forms of body relaxation that combine a series of rhythmic breathing with postures and body movements. The physical posture helps you improve your balance and flexibility and increases your focus on the body. It also helps you distract from your thoughts.
