Doctor:There are some relaxation techniques
User:please advice...
Doctor:There are three major types of relaxation techniques:
Autogenic training: This technique uses both visual imagery and body awareness to move a person into a deep state of relaxation. The person imagines a peaceful place and then focuses on different physical sensations, moving from the feet to the head. For example, one might focus on warmth and heaviness in the limbs, easy, natural breathing, or a calm heartbeat.
Breathing: In breathing techniques, you place one hand on your chest and the other on your belly. Take a slow, deep breath, sucking in as much air as you can. As you're doing this, your belly should push against your hand. Hold your breath and then slowly exhale.
Progressive muscle relaxation: This technique involves slowly tensing and then releasing each muscle group individually, starting with the muscles in the toes and finishing with those in the head.
Meditation: The two most popular forms of meditation in the U.S. include Transcendental Meditation (students repeat a mantra -- a single word or phrase) and mindfulness meditation (students focus their attention on their thoughts and sensations).
Doctor:These are some techniques that help dealing with stress
Doctor:I personally find meditation helpful as it helps you focus better at work
Doctor:Since you are able to focus better you are able to deal with workplace stress
