We all have our preferences and hence when it comes to relaxation techniques we all differ in our choices. When trying to figure out a relaxation technique that is best suited for you, take into consideration your specific requirements, fitness level and also the way you usually respond to stress.
The right relaxation technique is meant to help you focus your mind and erase your everyday stress factors, so that you are able to truly benefit from the relaxation response that it will elicit.
The most important factor that you need to think about is how you really react to stress. Do you get agitated, depressed or perhaps you just become emotionally numb? The relaxation method that will befit you most will certainly be dependent on how you react to stress.
For example, if you are an individual who mostly becomes agitated and angry due to excessive stress, then the relaxation methods you should resort to include meditation or deep breathing. However, if you are an individual who tends to get depressed when stress strikes, then you would rather would benefit from methods that will stimulate your nervous system such as dancing or exercise. So figure out your needs and then select your choice of relaxation technique appropriately!
