What is Relaxation?

Relaxation or, some might say, peace of mind is a specific state of calmness that a person experiences in their life despite the stress that is involved in every area of existence. Many believe it is a natural state of being and considered to be a healthy mental state. Relaxation is the opposite of stress and it all begins with the mind if the mind is stressed you cannot relax. Studies show that people are at their most creative when they are relaxed and our minds tend to perform best this way. When we are stressed our minds turn on the flight or fight response not allowing us to flow freely or think clearly. Relaxation is also known as peace, bliss or contentment.

Relaxation is often sought after in many cultures and religions through forms of training, such as prayer, meditation, tai chi, and yoga. In the modern world, people struggle to cultivate inner relaxation as it is not taught or encouraged through our upbringing or society. The stresses of life tend to get to many people unless they have a robust base of relaxation to work from. Relaxation isn’t just lounging on the couch eating soup as I’m sure you have experienced. Being totally relaxed externally but your mind is still buzzing around making you feel negative for doing so. True relaxation even with the little things in life can seem like a lot of work, and results take a long time to be large enough to notice. It is a constant process of changing your mind and beliefs.

The Advantages of living a Relaxed life

Imagine how great it would be to stay relaxed, calm, and in control despite many difficult circumstances. This is what relaxation feels like, it is a constant state of bliss and happiness. Instead of getting anxious, scared or depressed you feel happy and comfortable all of the time. There is a complete lack of thinking negative thoughts and expecting the worst, there isn’t a feeling a never-ending tenseness or unhappiness you can choose to stay emotionally and mentally unshaken and grounded. With true relaxation, you can experience inner peace and happiness, as well as high self-esteem and confidence.

True relaxation offers many benefits:

  • Better concentration ability.

  • Efficiency in handling your daily affairs of life.

  • A sense of inner strength and power.

  • More patience, tolerance, and tact.

  • Freedom from stress, anxieties, and worries.

  • A sense of inner happiness and bliss.

  • Falling asleep easily and sleeping soundly.

When you are relaxed, you are not affected by what people think or say about you, and there is no overthinking or over analyzing. You are not affected by events that seem difficult, and you maintain a clear judgment in all situations.

The Opposite of a Relaxed Life

On the other hand, a lack of relaxation in a person life can create a horrible existence. They are in constant stress and anxiety never being able to sit still with their thoughts for more than a couple seconds. Many people nowadays have been conditioned this way, they believe fighting outside of yourself to achieve certain things is the natural state to be in and that it is actually harmful to be relaxed, even for a moment. This is very upsetting and can lead to depression and even suicide.

Disadvantage of a stressed mind:

  • Never being able to relax

  • Crippling social anxiety

  • Finding it difficult to handle tough situation

  • Ungrounded

  • Fearful

  • Lack of confidence

  • Depression

This state of mind may look like bad temper and negative behavior. Making even the smallest decisions can be tough. You become stuck in your head, like something just existing rather than a living. You cannot express your actual personality and live in a state of perpetual fear although you are not sure what it is you are afraid of. Other negative emotions of not being relaxed include self-pity, guilt, apathy, pessimism, narcissism. You suffer with a withdrawal of feeling, and it is frightening not only to experience but to witness. People like this can connect only tenuously with reality, sometimes they find it hard to find meaning in this state and In a goal-driven, work-oriented culture, this is deeply threatening. This viewpoint can have a paralyzing grip on people, not only because of the lack the imagination, and failure to trust in people trying to help but because most people who do not have a relaxed mental state don’t want to understand that things could be better.

How to Relax your mind

A relax mind is something we are all born with. We are born whole and at ease, until we are told that we should be something else; our perception of events can skew our relaxed state. This leaves adults in a state of constant stress. You shouldn’t feel stressed, anxious or depressed all the time or at least you should be able to handle it. Being relaxed is like taking a step back from your emotions but feeling them a lot more. You are less attached and much more content. This instinct can be released if you have lost it.

The best method to regain relaxation in your life is guided meditation. This is where we clear out external stimuli and allow our mind to drift into the dark recesses of our subconscious. We’ll discover what is keeping us from being relaxed. What repressed emotion, beliefs, and tendencies are keeping you from being happy. We will then bring these to the surface and release them during our sessions together.
