Relaxation

By Kathy Garber

There are a variety of ways to relax when you feel stressed or when you feel like you are about to explode in anger.  In order to find out the best technique that is right for you, you will need to practice each one to determine which works best for you.

One of the easiest techniques to calm yourself is through deep breathing.  If it sounds too good to be true, don’t be a skeptic until you try it.  Deep breathing is convenient because you can practice it anywhere and anytime you feel anger creeping up and no one will know you are practicing a relaxation technique. 

Deep Breathing

Practice by taking in three slow steady breaths in a row.  Slowly draw the air into your lungs and slowly release it.  Practicing this technique will help you perfect it. 

Muscle Relaxation

Find a quiet place where you can lie down without interruption.  Start at the top of your head and focus on relaxing every muscle from your head to your toes one at a time. 

The challenge is keeping them relaxed.  If you feel a muscle begin to tense up, go back and re relax it.  Clear all thoughts out of your mind and concentrate only on your muscles and relaxing them.  Once you have made it from your head to your toes, try to stay relaxed for 20 minutes. 

Imagery

Think of a calm happy place and try to take your mind there.  Close your eyes and imagine yourself in that peaceful calm place that makes you happy and try to see, feel, smell, taste and touch it. 

Maybe one of these techniques could work for you or maybe you will need to use all three.  Anger Management requires that you become active in your own Anger Management plan. 

You devise the plan that is right for your life and then you must be active in it and practice it on a daily basis. AngerManagementOnline.com can help motivate you to find the right techniques and keep you motivated in your practice.
