You've completed an important step.
- THINGS I CAN DO TO HELP MY RELAXATION:
To benefit from the Relaxation Response, I should focus my attention on the repetition of a word, a sound, a phrase or a physical activity.
When awareness inevitably wanders from the object of attention, there should be a nonjudgmental return to the act of repetition.
Aim for 10 minutes minimum a day but if you can ideally aim for 20 min twice a day.
You can use the Relaxation Response for 1-2 15min breaks at work per day.
You can use the Relaxation Response after closing your eyes when attempting to go to sleep at night.
