3 Techniques for relaxation

Everyone deserves time to relax, you deserve it. You don’t need to to go to the spa, leisure centre or a retreat for relaxation. NaphtalyWorld will demonstrate ways in less than 20 minutes for stress-relieving.

 

1. Breathe in and breathe out

Take few minutes to focus on your breathing, sit up straight, put one hand on your belly, and close your eyes.

Breathe deeply, inhale slowly and exhale through your mouth.

Breathing deeply counters the effect of stress by slowing the heart rate and lowering blood pressure.

 

2. Meditate

When it comes to meditation, majority think it’s about chanting but really it is spending time in the moment and focus on your senses and you will feel less tense.

Your mind will be at ease and your brain can start stimulating.

Any of these repetive actions such as painting, swimming, any activity that can swift your attention calmy in the present.

 

3. Drink hot tea

There are several herbs that could give you the sedative effect you may need during hardships.

Most herbs should steep between 5 to 10 minutes, if you want to use fresh herbs, I’ll advise to put 3 tablespoons or if you are using dried herbs use 1 teaspoon with hot water.

There are a lot of tea, however I will state few that are good for relaxation.

Chamomile - Traditional herb favourite for its calming influence, it helps to decrease mild anxiety, it help soothe the stomach.

Green tea - Besides it’s high antioxidant content, green tea offers health and beauty. It helps you to relax as it contains theanine. Green tea does contain caffeine, you may want to try decaffeinate kind for relaxation.
