A peach is a peach
A plum is a plum,
A kiss isn't a kiss
Without some tongue.
So open up your mouth
close your eyes,
and give your tongue
some exercise!!!

Don't Waste your Energy - Learn to Relax

By May Noujaim

Having so many things to do during a limited time puts people under pressure, and makes them prone to being stressed. And since this is applicable to our modern life, it is becoming urgent to be aware of the need to relax. We modern women need to avoid the physical painful effects that result from being under stress.

Indeed, tension produces aches and pains; most commonly in the neck and back, which tends to add up to one's troubles and become the source of something extra to worry about. Being tense makes a person irritable and tired. And what most us do not realize that any task that any of us accomplishes while feeling tense consumes more energy than it would if the person were in a relaxed status. As a matter of fact, learning to relax slows the person, and helps him or her to cope more comfortably with the demands of daily living. Not only that, but also it helps in soothing both the mind and body. It is in fact a skill that could be acquired through a four steps process.

First is the preparation stage. Research showed that learning to relax helps people become calmer, less tense, as well as anxious. It does not matter which method to choose, but the most important is to choose one method and stick with it until you have learned it properly.

Learning to relax takes time at least half an hour a day for the first few weeks. But if you feel tense, learning how to relax should be a priority. Decide first which time of day suits you best.

To obtain the optimum results one should choose the time that is totally free from any daily disturbances or interruption. Making relaxation into a routine, and practicing it at the same time, every day, can relieve you of the task of deciding each day when you will do it, and make it easier to remember to practice. Also it is advisable not to do it last thing before going to be, because it is the daily events or circumstances that would enable you to depict the circumstances that leads you to become stressed.

Learn to relax at your own pace, take your time, no need to hurry. Need to sit in a posture that allows you to relax, such as lying down on your back with your eyes closed, taking deep breaths, and by deep we mean feeling that your stomach muscles are involved not only your chest.

The Second part of the stress process involves practicing. One needs to practice to relax physically, as well as mentally. In order to be able to relax physically, one may follow these slight exercises. While applying the following exercises one need to remember to take a breath after tensing each muscle group and then letting it go.

1) Clench your fists, and let go.
2) Tighten biceps and lower arms together, without the hands.
3) Raise your shoulders as if they could touch your ears
4) Screw up your toes

5) Point your foot away from you so that it is almost parallel with your leg
6) Flex your feet upwards, stretching your heels down
7) Tighten them while pressing your knees down into the floor
8) Hold your stomach muscles tight
9) Press the small of your back into the floor
10) Breathe in, hold your breath and raise your shoulders as if they could touch your ears. Shoulders: Breathe in, hold your breath and raise your shoulders as if they could touch your ears
11) Stretch your head up, as if your chin could touch the ceiling
12) Bend your head forward until your chin reaches your chest
13) Press your lips together and clench your teeth
14) Close your eyes up right
15) Raise your eyebrows as if they could disappear
16) Screw all the muscles up together

On the other hand to reach the status of mental relaxation, one needs to make use of relaxing imagery each time one thinks about worrying or upsetting things. While relaxing after accomplishing the exercises, one may try to imagine that he or she is in one of them. It is very normal to find one self's concentration wavering to thinking about tomorrow's problems. Despite that, it is not that difficult to bring one's attention back to the relaxing memory or scene.

The third stage is the application part. Once one is able to achieve deep muscle relaxation using the whole exercise, one need to learn how to use this new skill in ways that make one feel better. It is about learning to recognize small degrees of tension early and how to let them go before they build up. This can be achieved by shortening the exercise, so that you can relax quickly. One for example could try to focus only on some muscles. But as the practice times become shorter. Look for opportunities to practice more often.

Try to practice in increasing difficult situations. Once you are reasonably good at basic relaxation, try to level it up to trying relaxing while you are sitting on a chair or while you are engaged in another activity, such as when watching TV, washing up or reading. Furthermore, once you reach the stage of learning to relax during your regular daily activities, then you could start applying this skill to in situations that make you tense, in other words in situations that trouble you.

The fourth step and last step in the relaxation process is six ways of developing a relaxed attitude. First, need to adopt a relaxed posture. Allow your body to rest whenever you have the chance. Second, need to stop rushing about. Most people find that they get just as much done when they go slowly as when they rush, and they can also keep going longer.

Doing things calmly is much less tiring. Third, make a habit of doing the things you find relaxing. Do whatever things that relax you. Fourth, seek out Pleasures and treats. The more you are enjoying yourself, the more relaxed you will feel. Fifth, spread the risks. If you put all your eggs in one basket, you will feel extremely tense and on edge if that basket is threatened. Last, give yourself breaks. Take short breaks, in addition to the long ones such as regular holidays.

Relaxation is one of the most general ways of making you feel better. Once you have learnt to do it, you will find that it makes a noticeable and extremely worthwhile contribution to your mood and to your energy, not just when you are feeling tense or agitated, but at other times as well. Also developing relaxed attitudes and habits keeps the person from developing any psychological diseases that could result from too much stress and so keeping him or her psychologically fit.
