Link to relaxation techniques

Hi,

My mental health nurse gave me this link to help learn relaxation techniques. I found them extremely useful ( glasgowspcmh.org.uk/downloa... )

Does anybody else know of any others?

Hi, meditation matters is a good site, it often advertises on 'Face Book', I have bought Mindfullness C.D.'s from Amazon, and relaxation c.d's from them. xx

Hi, yes I find any type of relaxation helpful, my yoga and c.d.'s have kept me 'sane', my family disagree with that statement. lol. I love the meditation part of yoga as the postures are hard, I suffer, not badly, with arthritis. I especially like the meditations. that take you on a journey, they are from meditainment. My yoga teacher also makes c.d's and is in the process of making a 'yoga nidra' c.d. which is defined as physic sleep, or a meditation that takes you through a relaxation of the body. If you want to private message me, with your address, I will copy one of my C.D.'s to see if they help you.

Awww that would be excellent. Thank you.

I've been also doing relaxation with images and thoughts. Using all five sensors. I take myself to a place in my mind where I know I'm at my most relaxed.

I'm trying to teach myself to to this using a trigger. So I can relax instantly when im feeling anxious or stressed.

Thanks for this, I'm going to have a look and listen when I'm at home later, hoping these might be helpful. Thanks again!

Hey ccrr,

Because of my health anxiety I don't do meds that well. So I was offered this self help.

At first I didn't think it would work, but I now I wouldn't be without them.

It took me around 6 weeks doing deep relaxation everyday sometimes twice a day to really have an effect.

I was told to treat this as you would like going to the gym. But instead of building up your muscles your increasing you body to be more stress resistant.

I think it definitely worked for me. Good luck :-)

I downloaded an app on my phone called Headspace. I find it's good to stop my brain going in to overload before bed.
