Why it is good to practice relaxation

Cases of both anxiety and stress are the order of the day. In fact, it is rare the day we do not feel nervous, anxious or stressed, and that we do not do our daily chores running from one side to the other. And we could say that what once became an excellent defense mechanism, which alerted us and put us in motion in the presence of some predator or danger, today has become a real problem for our health, especially when there is no real cause of danger and especially when it becomes chronic.

The increase in cases of stress and anxiety is coupled with the current pace of life that we have so busy, where we must do everything quickly and quickly, and in which any rest that we take becomes simply an authentic utopia. The truth is that our competitive society greatly influences it, so it is very common for many of the diseases and health disorders so related to them to appear. The most usual? Undoubtedly emotional gastritis, in addition to other digestive and stomach problems, such as stomach pain, diarrhea or constipation, ulcers, irritable bowel and Crohn's disease.

For all this, practicing relaxation every day is essential when it comes to earning both physical and mental health. To achieve this, it is only necessary to practice it for at least 30 minutes each day.

1. Helps to reduce stress and anxiety

Giving us at least 30 minutes a day to relax and be calmer helps us to get away from stress and anxiety, besides helping us to think more clearly and be more creative. It is an ideal option when we tend to feel very nervous, since it is useful to calm down when our nerves are tense.

2. Eliminate muscle tension

Stress, anxiety and nerves attack the muscles by causing some muscle tension. In fact, when you feel stressed or anxious do you usually have more muscle contractures? For me, for example, the trapeze usually hurts me a lot. Moreover, every time I feel very nervous, after a few minutes, part of my back hurts, my neck hurts and I also suffer from a headache.

The solution? Very simple: calm the nerves by relaxing a little for a few minutes, trying to "turn off" the thoughts and the mind, leaving it blank.

3. Increase the level of consciousness

When we maintain a daily practice of relaxation, and practice relaxation regularly, it is common for us to lose our mind to keep our minds blank and to stay much more focused. Therefore, when we do it in a habitual way, we in turn increase our level of consciousness.

4. It helps us to have more positive thoughts

When we feel stressed, very nervous or anxious we often flood the negative and / or obsessive thoughts, so that they become a vicious circle that does not benefit us at all.

However, when we relax and practice relaxation techniques on a daily basis we can enjoy a greater number of positive thoughts.

5. Increase our resistance to diseases

Regularly practice relaxation it helps us to increase the defenses, which in turn translates into strengthening our health in general and our immune system in particular, in a way that increases our resistance to the most common diseases, such as colds and flu.
