The Reasons Why Daily Relaxation is Important to Your Health

Relaxation is a method of adaption to anxiety and life stressors which

is beneficial to both the physical and psychological well being of an

individual. The methods of relaxing are numerous and psychologists and

hypnosis experts have developed numerous methods which could of help

for you to relax. Whatever the way you use to relax, so long as it is

successful, it leads to regulation of physiological functions and

adaptation of a sense of peacefulness and self satisfaction. So, what

are the benefits of daily relaxation?

Relaxation has some major positive influences on the physical and

physiological body functions. During stress, the body adapts by

increasing the levels of some neurotransmitters; mainly epinephrine and

nor-epinephrine. Epinephrine and nor-epinephrine,they have strong

influence on almost every system in the body, especially the

cardiovascular system. During stress, these neurotransmitters stimulate

the constriction of blood vessels and stimulate the heart to increase

its rate which has many negative influences on the stressed individual.

Hypertension and coronary artery disease are well known complications

that are consequences of the heightened epinephrine and nor-epinephrine

levels that occur during stress.

Relaxation is a break from your strenuous life. When you're relaxing,

you are actually clearing up your mind and readjusting your thinking

processes. Meditation and relaxation researches have spotted

individuals, who can reach the right decision, after a successful

relaxing session. During relaxation, the brain electrical discharge and

impulses decrease in their rate and amplitude which leads to overall

resting of thinking and other cognitive functions. Relaxation is also

very important in strengthening memory. Some studies have shown that

relaxation helps saving (consolidation) of data in the short term

memory. In other words, if you want to have a strong memory, you have

to learn how to relax efficiently

Learning how to efficiently relax can be of great help in dealing with

some anxiety and stress related psychological disorders. Individuals

who are experiencing panic attacks can be treated successfully by

adapting healthy relaxing techniques. Moreover, some unhealthy

personality traits which lead to behavioral disorders can be

successfully dealt with the right relaxation techniques. Most

individuals suffering from anxiety disorders and other stress related

psychological symptoms can benefit from daily relaxation routines.

Recent studies have shown that patients suffering from phobias and

obsessive compulsive disorders can be treted of their symptoms by using

daily relaxation programs and guided meditation techniques.

Relaxation has been shown to lead to amelioration of the levels of

epinephrine and nor-epinephrine which is positively reflected on a

lower incidence of hypertension and coronary insufficiency.

Relaxation is a way of helping you dig deep into yourself and find

your internal wisdom. It doesn't matter how you relax, but What really

matters is that you should learn how to relax right. Adapting a

relaxing technique, which depends on meditation, is a key factor in

harvesting all the health benefits of relaxation. Guided meditation can

help you get into a trance state which can maximize the effects of

relaxation on your body and soul.

Relaxation is an important self healing way and adapting the right

relaxing technique should guarantee you all the physical and

psychological effects of relaxation.
