Relaxation Techniques to Relieve Stress and Anxiety

Do you experience regular bouts of stress? While some people assume stress is harmless, it can negatively affect both your body and mind. According to the website StatisticsBrain, 77% of the general population experiences physical symptoms caused by stress. This may include increased blood pressure, sweating, insomnia, weakened immune system, fatigue, etc. Thankfully, you can relieve stress and anxiety by engaging in one or more of the following relaxation techniques.

Mantra Meditation

Mantra is a Transcendental Meditation technique that involves silently repeating a word or phrase in a quiet, distraction-free environment with your eyes closed. Your “mantra” can literally be anything, ranging from your own name to a motivational phrase like “just breathe.” Of course, it’s recommended that you choose a positive mantra for optimal results, as negatively focused mantras could have the opposite effect by increasing stress levels. Mantra meditation is believed to allow the individual’s attention to transition to a quieter style of functioning. Click here for some ancient mantra’s.

Guided Meditation

What in the world is guided meditation and how can it help to relieve stress and anxiety? Guided meditation is exactly what it sounds like: meditation that’s performed under the guidance and/or instructions of another individual. Many people want to meditate but don’t know how. Guided meditation allows newcomers to experience a true, genuine meditation practice under the expertise of an instructor.

Keep in mind, however, that you can still perform guided meditation at home. There are guided meditation DVDs, MP3s, smartphone apps and more.

On our site we share various meditations with you every month, some of which are guided. A couple links are listed below, as well as another at the end of this post.

Observe Your Mind

The next time you feel stressed, try becoming the observer of your own mind. To do this, close your eyes and place your attention towards the area between your eyebrows (known as the Third Eye). Rather than feeling your anxiety, sit back and observe it. Doing so will allow you to develop a greater understanding of the true cause of your stress, at which point you make changes in your life to eliminate it.

Relax Your Muscles

As we mentioned earlier, stress can bring on physical symptoms, such as muscle tension for instance. When you are stressed, your body will instinctively tense up. To relieve this physical tension, close your eyes and relax each and every muscle, starting from the top of your head and working your way to the bottom of your feet. As your muscles begin to revert back to their normal, relaxed state, you’ll feel a sense of calmness flowing through your body. See the meditation video below.

We also offer free and low-cost downloadable meditations and mantras on our sister site.

Rituals to Cleanse Your Spirit

Most of us routinely clean our homes, cars, rooms, office spaces, and even our bodies. How often do we cleanse our spirit? We all know we should take better care of ourselves, so here are a couple easy ways you can incorporate cleansing your spirit.

Take a Saltwater Bath

Often referred to as “The Tears of God,” salt plays a key role in spiritual health and cleansing. It’s able to expunge negative energy, giving our body and mind a fresh start so to speak. If you are looking to hit the reset button by flushing negative energy from your spirit, consider taking a hot saltwater bath.

Fill the tub up with warm-to-hot water according to your liking, toss in 2 cups of all-natural sea salt, and soak inside for at least half an hour. During this time, try to visualize the problems affecting your spirit and picture them going away. Whether you are experiencing relationship problems, poor health, financial instability, etc., focus your thoughts on releasing the negative aspects of your life while taking a saltwater bath. Picture the troubles going down the drain as you drain the tub. When you get out, avoid using a towel and instead allow your body to air dry. Doing so will create a protective layer of salt over your skin, protecting you from negative energy.

Incorporate Feng Shui Into Your Home

How can Feng Shui be used to cleanse your spirit? Feng Shui is an ancient Chinese philosophical system that’s based on the principle of harmonizing one’s environment. When your environment becomes cluttered, it promotes negative energy — negative energy which enters your body and spirit. Therefore, you should work to harmonize your home and surrounding environment with Feng Shui. This may include rearranging the furniture, painting the walls, removing unnecessary clutter, etc.

Sage Smudging

A third ritual that is commonly performed the purpose of cleaning one’s spirit is sage smudging. This process involves the use of bundled sage herb that are bound together with string. Once lit, the sage will burn to release cleansing fragrances and chemicals into the environment. People have been using smudge sticks for centuries, with some of the earliest known reports dating back to the Native Americans.

To cleanse your spirit with a smudge stick, first make sure it is filled with fresh, genuine sage. Smudge sticks can be used with a variety of different herbs, although sage has been proven to yield the greatest benefit in terms of cleansing. Next, have a friend or family member burn the smudge stick while you lie down, running the stick over your body, back and forth. During this process, take slow, deep breaths to really draw in the sage.

Best Places to Meditate

A relaxing and mentally productive meditation session begins with choosing the right location. Attempting to meditate in a loud, distracting environment will make it increasingly difficult for you to retain control of your thoughts, which of course is essential for this practice. However, a peaceful and serene environment will allow enhance your ability to meditate, as it ties directly into your thoughts in a natural, seamless manner.

The Beach

You can can’t wrong with the beach when choosing a location to meditate. Even if there are other beach-goers present, the sound of the ocean waves crashing against the shore will provide a soothing and relaxing background. You can try to align your breathing with the ocean waves, breathing in and out at the same time as the waves crash. And if you still want some privacy, try venturing down shore to find a jetty or some other secluded area.

The Woods

Of course, a forest or wooded area is another excellent location to meditate. There’s just something peaceful about the woods. Perhaps it’s the fact that there are no signs of modern civilization present, or maybe it’s because of the diverse wildlife. Regardless, a wooded area makes a great place to meditate. I recommend searching for a somewhat open area with a large log on which you can sit. You can then post up here and perform your regular meditation ritual.

In a Field

Open fields of grass offer an ideal location to meditate. With only the sound of blades of grass blowing in the wind, you’ll have an easier time maintaining focus during meditation.  You may also hear the birds singing or see some wild life depending on the time of day and location.

On the Airplane

If you frequently travel via commercial airliner — for work or leisure — try meditating on your next flight. Most people are either sleeping or playing on their gadgets during flights, so chances are they won’t pay any attention to you. Just close your eyes and make slow, deep breaths while blocking all distractions in your surrounding environment.

If you are a traveler, there are also many places that offer retreats for meditation.

In Your Bed

Who says that you have to travel outside of your home (or bedroom) to meditate? Many people actually prefer to meditate in their bed, as this offers a familiar, relaxing environment without any surprises. Whether it’s in the morning or at night, try laying down on your bed and meditating for 10-20 minutes. As long as the TV is turned off and other distractions removed, this should offer an ideal location.

The Power of Positive Thinking

Do you look at the glass as being half full or half empty? People who view and approach everyday life in a positive mindset tend to be happier, healthier and more productive. It may sound like science fiction, but your state of mind can and WILL have an impact on nearly every aspect of your life.

Researchers from the University of California, Riverside recently conducted a study to determine the impact that “happiness” had a person’s job. In the study, titled Does Happiness Promote Career Success, they found that happy people with a positive view on life were more satisfied with their jobs, perform better than their unhappy peers, and receive more support from coworkers. So, if you wake up every morning with a sense of dread going into work, try shifting your train of thought to positive, happy elements. Who knows, it could catapult your career to the next level while allowing you to enjoy work just a little more.

In addition to the psychological benefits, positive thinking may also have physiological benefits. A 2013 study published in the journal of the American Heart Association (AHA), for instance, found that people suffering from heart disease — the number one cause of death among men and women in the U.S. — lived longer if they maintained a positive outlook. The study analyzed 607 patients from a Denmark hospital and found that patients whose moods were positive were 58% more likely to live at least another five years.

Of course, the power of positive thinking isn’t a new concept by any means. For centuries, some of the world’s smartest people have touted the importance of having a positive mindset. Successful businessman, author, and columnist with University Uclick Harvey Mackay was a firm believer in the power of positive thinking.

Positive thinking is more than just a tagline. It changes the way we behave. And I firmly believe that when I am positive, it not only makes me better, but it also makes those around me better,” said The New York Times best-selling author. Mackay has even attributed his success to his positive mindset, attesting to the power of positive thinking.

So, how can you maintain a positive outlook on life? Everyone is bound to have a bad day every once in a while. The secret is to not allow such days to overwhelm your train of thought. Think about the good, positive elements of life, focusing on them instead.  We all know that being grateful for what you do have can really change things around.

Many great spiritual leaders have talks and books on your thoughts and how they shape your life. Here is a video with Wayne Dyer sharing with us ways to Change your Thoughts – Change your Life: Living the Wisdom of the Tao.

Louise Hay is in his audience during this video, and she also has written many books on your thoughts and how they can heal you.

The Art of Aligning the Body and Soul

Join Marianne Williamson as she talks about the Art of Aligning the Body and Soul.  She talks about us being in our body not of our body. We may practice Yoga or Meditation, but how do we carry the peace with us when we go out in the world?  What is our responsibility collectively to stay aligned when we are out in the world?

Marianne talks about being one with the Universe at times in our Yoga position or meditation practice, so if we are one with the Universe then we are one with the earth. If we are one with the Universe we are one with all living things. So if we are one with the Universe what does that mean about our oneness with a starving child? She continues to ask about not just how the starving children feel but how does the mother or father feel of the child?

She compares fracking to cutting and how insane it is.  She says that what people are seeking in Yoga and other spiritual practices is a place to get out of the insanity.  She wonders how anyone makes it today without a spiritual practice of some kind.

As Gandhi said be the change we wish to see in the world but that is only part of it. We must not only be the change, but also take the change in the world and engage the world in a different way.

Join Marianne as she leads us in discussion to this question how do we dwell within our inner temple in the alignment yet deal with the chaos of the world?

Marianne Williamson is an internationally acclaimed spiritual author and lecturer. Six of her ten published books have been New York Times Best Sellers. Four of these have been #1 New York Times Best Sellers.

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate, Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure…” – Marianne Williamson, A Return to Love

Marianne’s other books include The Age of Miracles, Everyday Grace, A Woman’s Worth, Illuminata, Healing the Soul of America, A Course in Weight Loss, The Gift of Change and The Law of Divine Compensation.  For more information on Marianne, please visit
