BENEFITS of practicing relaxation regularly
During the practice we enter a state of consciousness – somewhere between dreaming and wakefulness – where we are able to decode the messages of our subconscious mind. By practising regularly, we are able to create our own harmonious internal and external environment. This leaves us more receptive to internal and external signals . Pictures, memories, sounds, and even unexpected solutions to problems can appear.
A relaxed mind and body will also lead to increased creativity and the ability to remain calm in stressful situations. This is particularly helpful in the case of panic attacks, when being able to control your stress response can mean the difference between coping and being incapacitated.
Helping our body and mind achieve a more balanced state also means that our immune system is strengthened, so that when we get ill we can recover more quickly. Other stress-based conditions such as high blood pressure and sleeping problems will also improve.
Practicing relaxation regularly can help you discover that you needed to invest much less energy into doing things than before, and can also get more things done. The way you carry out tasks can change for the better, too. Other benefits might be that your cognitive function develops even further, which can come in handy in every day life.
