We're all aware how damaging stress can be for our health if left out of control. However, do you know the benefits of relaxation on your physical health?
While you are in a relaxed state your heart rate comes down, your breathing slows down, your blood pressure decreases and the blood flow to your muscles is increased. All of these are excellent for releasing tension in your muscles which also happens to help if you suffer with chronic pain. Overall your body feels and performs better, including your immune system as well as your circulatory, respiratory and gastrointestinal systems.
Not only does your body benefit from relaxation but your mind does as well. You will find that you start thinking clearer and are able to focus and concentrate much better than when you are filled with tension. You are able to make decisions faster and easier as well, as your problem solving skills are more acute. After relaxation you will find that you get a better night's sleep which helps you to awake rejuvenated and prepared to face the day.
Relaxation also helps you to control your emotions better which leads to less temper flare ups, less crying (if you are one who tends to cry when stressed) and overall, less anger.
There are some medical conditions that are known to benefit from using relaxation techniques such as those who suffer with anxiety disorders, depression, and panic attacks. Skin disorders, also, such as eczema, dermatitis and psoriasis have shown great improvement after relaxation
techniques have been implemented. There are so many more health conditions that can be improved by using relaxation techniques such that if you suffer with any of these I would suggest that you see what effect it has for you; ulcers,emphysema,asthma, migraines,epilepsy, PMS and menopausal issues,angina, heart burn, insomnia and even diabetes mellitus.
Even if the relaxation technique does nothing to improve your health condition it will still have positive effects on your mind and body overall.
