Relaxation – an instant exercise audio / podcast

For this very popular and super-useful instant relaxation audio for people of all ages, click HERE.

Stress is a positive physical response to the need to super-perform but sometimes we can feel too stressed or respond at times when we don’t need this reaction. When this happens, our breathing becomes shallow and various muscles tighten unnecessarily, making us tense when we don’t need to be. The art is to recognise these times and have a tool to take the breathing down to an optimal level and relax the tense muscles. This ability is incredibly useful. Not only does it protect against the longterm effects of repeated stress but it also improves performance at those times when stress is appropriate but excessive. This exercise is something everyone should be able to do. Practise before a stressful situation and you have a tool you can use any time, any place, and no one even knows you’re doing it
