Tip of the Day: How to Relax your Body and Mind
2. Relax in a quiet environment with few distractions.
As you become more familiar with relaxation and practiced in various techniques, you will learn to relax anywhere. To begin, however, choose an environment that is free of distractions.
3. Make sure you are in a setting that does not require your outside attention.
4. Make yourself comfortable. Position yourself on chair with neck and back support, a firm bed, or a comfortable mat on the floor.
Make sure the room is warm, not too hot or too cool.
Choose a comfortable position that you can maintain for at least 10 minutes.
5. Start with short relaxation sessions, about 5 minutes.
With more experience, achieving relaxation will become easier and you will be able to relax for longer periods of time.
With practice, 20 or 30 minutes is quite reasonable, and you may wish to relax for even longer sessions.
