Experience a wave of deep relaxation moving over your whole body, from the top of your head right down into your toes.

14. Become aware of your body again and ‘feel’ around with your mind for any areas that may still be tense. Repeat the tightening and releasing of muscles until you feel deeply relaxed. (If you are recording this or guiding a friend, remain silent for five to ten minutes before moving on to the next instruction, which must be spoken very softly so as not to startle the listener.)

15. Remain in this beautiful state for a while, perfectly at ease, perfectly at peace. (If you are recording this or guiding a friend, remain silent for five to ten minutes before moving on to the next instruction, which must be spoken very softly so as not to startle the listener.)

Now it is time to move out of your inner sanctuary, to return to everyday awareness. Raise your arms overhead and have a really good stretch from fingertips to toes. When you feel ready, roll over to one side before slowly getting up.

This exercise is most beneficial if practiced once a day (twice a day if you have time) for the first two weeks, then three or four times a week thereafter, and at any other time when you feel stressed. For best results, do not carry out immediately after a heavy meal. Wait for at least two hours, or until you feel comfortable. On the other hand, if you do the exercise whilst very hungry, your rumbling stomach will distract your attention!

Other Ways To Ride The Waves

Nature in her myriad forms is perhaps the most potent de-stressor of all, uplifting the spirits of the downhearted and offering tranquility to the frenzied. So, whenever possible, get out into the countryside, or take a walk around the local park, breathe deeply and delight in the sights, sounds, textures and scents of the earth.

If you are suffering from the kind of stress born of a monotonous existence, make every effort to break the routine. This may sound obvious but is easy to overlook when you are in a rut. Visit new places as often as possible; follow up sudden notions; take up a new hobby; read a different kind of book, newspaper or magazine from usual; join an adult education class; provide for compensatory physical activity.
