Dr. Stone recommends these easy tools for putting yourself in a centered and relaxed state.
First, slow and deep, diaphragmatic breathing (breathing through your nose, making your stomach, versus your chest, rise and fall), will produce a state of physical well being that tells your mind it is ok to relax. Second, mindfulness can be practiced at any time, and any place, by simply directing your non-judgmental awareness to whatever is happening in the present moment.
Dr. Stone recommends listening to beautiful, relaxing music, which she has created especially for you! She has also provided a very restful and calming relaxation session that you can listen to at any time for relaxation and/or sleep.
These tools can all be used separately or together as a recipe for total relaxation. In fact, the Anxiety Disorders Association of America (ADAA) specifically lists meditation and music as two important relaxation techniques to reduce anxiety and stress.
Also offered is a spoken word relaxation session performed by Dr. Stone. Enjoy and please share your feedback!
