Having regular relaxation in your life can help you stay energized, focused, and reduce overall stress. To get started, let’s look at different types of relaxation techniques that you can practice in the comfort of your own home.

The first technique is deep breathing. Deep breathing helps to oxygenate the body and decrease stress levels by calming the nervous system. To do this correctly, sit in a comfortable position and inhale deeply through your nose for a count of 4, hold for 8 seconds, then exhale through your mouth for 8 seconds. Practice this several times a day and observe how relaxed it makes you feel.

Another popular relaxation method is a guided meditation. Guided meditation helps to reduce stress and anxiety while boosting positive energy. To do this, sit comfortably and close your eyes. Begin to focus on your breath as you slowly exhale and inhale for 10 to 15 minutes. You can play calming music or guided meditation audio to help you relax your mind and body.

Yoga is also a great option for relaxation. Not only does it reduce anxiety but also helps to stretch and strengthen your muscles. To practice yoga, start by choosing a quiet location in your home, where you won’t be disturbed. Then follow an online yoga flow and focus on your breath as you move through each posture. After a few repetitions you will start to feel less stressed and more relaxed.

Finally, taking regular walks can also help relax the mind. Walking helps to reduce stress levels while increasing energy levels. To do this, make sure to walk in a quiet park or nature reserve away from traffic or loud noises. Make sure to walk at a pace that is comfortable for you, while focusing on your breath and surrounding environment.

These are just some of the many relaxation techniques you can do in the comfort of your own home. Make sure to dedicate some time each day for yourself and practice these methods to give yourself the relaxation needed to maximize mind and body capacity!

In order to make spiritual progress, you must have everyday discipline. Discipline to wake up, to meditate for the required time, to do all exercises with out taking short cuts, etc. You must be strict without letting up. Their will be times when you don't feel like doing anything, but you must persist regardless of your emotions or personal life. You should get up everyday at the same time and perform your spiritual requirements everyday at the same exact time. DO NOT take any days off unless sick. You will reap benefits faster by consistency. If you practice by leap and bounds, you will get little to no progress. The ball is in your court! You are your own worst enemy or best friend. You decide! I think you will choose the latt

er. Why turn back when you made it this far. Best of luck to you!

First, what is breath control? It is a conscious control of the breath. Essentially, it is controlling the inhale, hold, and exhale of the breath. It is dangerous you might ask? Well anything can be harmful if done without care and use of common sense. You should never go past you limits and should ease into the process. Never hold you breath to the point of passing out or make you exhale a hurried one due to straining yourself on the hold. Stop if you feel discomfort and continue the next day or until discomfort subsides. You must use your own common sense. The benefits far outweigh the negatives. Use of breath control will provide the cells with an abundance of energy! It will also increase your subtle sensitivity and bring the mind home(one-pointed and peaceful mood/mind). A good ratio to start out with is a inhale of 4 seconds, a hold of 16 seconds, and a exhale of 8 seconds. Do this about 18-36 reps. Inhale/Hold/Exhale = 1 rep. This breathing method will provide the body with energy and rhythm! If you do this before meditation, it will make the mind more relaxed and fit for the task! In summary, breath control is a great exercise to add to your everyday life and is not dangerous when you follow the basics I have laid out in this post. Peace and Love to you all!
