The secret ofRelaxation

DO I FEEL:
HOW EASY IS IT TO WORK RELAXATION INTO MY DAILY ROUTINE:
Great!

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.
