Like any other skills, effective relaxation requires practice and a lot of patience. Starting with just few minutes a day can bring profound changes in the way you deal with stress. Dedicate a quiet space and time for your relaxation sojourn. Wear comfortable clothes, take off your specs if you wear one, and yes, don't forget to switch off that smartphone. If you feel sleepy while practice, go ahead and take that power nap. Trust me, Byron and our adorable canine Dexter do that all the time!
Couples Therapy: Relax with a Partner
Relaxing with a partner can be an incredibly bonding experience. When Byron and I started practicing relaxation techniques together, it brought us much closer. We were more empathetic towards each other, our communication improved, and we found ourselves laughing together more often. Practicing deep breathing or meditation with your partner can be of great help. And if you're single, Dexter, my golden retriever, is the proof that your furry friends can make excellent relaxation buddies too!

Each technique can be customised according to your need and convenience. Go ahead and dive into the world of relaxation.
