Relaxation is the opposite of tension.
We all know that relaxation techniques are all the rage - be it meditation, yoga, massage, or whatever. But how important is relaxation? And what exactly will it do for you? The answers may surprise you...
Numerous studies have shown that using relaxation techniques regularly
Today, so much of what we rely on is in the hands of other people, like job security (our employer), food for our family (our employer), our security (the police) and so on. Added to a decrease in the feeling of community and extended family support and you have a great recipe for stress.
With increased stress and the accompanying decrease in relaxation time,
comes raised levels of stress hormones within your body - hormones such
as adrenaline and cortisol. Blood pressure rises. Your brain behaves
differently affecting memory and healing.
But I won't go on, it could get a bit depressing
Think about how easy it is for a baby or small child to fall asleep. We're born with the instinct to relax and sleep when our bodies or minds need a break. Over the years, it becomes necessary to control and even suppress these natural urges to rest, since we must remain alert as we attend school, learn professions, go to work, or care for a family. Many people spend years conditioning themselves to perform well despite feelings of tiredness. While no one would argue that suppressing tiredness can be a necessary skill, it can impair our ability to actually “let go” and relax when we do find the time
The stress response
Common to all stress reduction techniques is putting the body in a comfortable position, with gentle attention directed toward the breath. Do these techniques really work? Scientists have researched the effects of relaxation and report measurable benefits, including reduction in muscle tension and improved circulation.
Among the first to study relaxation was Edmund Jacobson, M.D. In 1934, he wrote You Must Relax about the benefits of his progressive relaxation techniques. He reported success in using his approach to treat high blood pressure, indigestion, colitis, insomnia, and what he called "nervousness."
One of the foremost writers and researchers in the field of stress reduction today is Herbert Benson, M.D., who coined the phrase "Relaxation Response" to describe the physiological and mental responses that occur when one consciously relaxes. In The Wellness Book, he defines the relaxation response as "a physiological state characterized by a slower heart rate, metabolism, rate of breathing, lower blood pressure, and slower brain wave patterns."
David Spiegel, M.D., author of Living Beyond Limits, reports, "In medicine, we are learning that physical problems, such as high blood pressure and heart disease, can be influenced by psychological interventions, such as relaxation training. Indeed, the Food and Drug Administration issued a report recommending these non-drug approaches as the treatment of choice for milder forms of hypertension. Mind and body are connected and must work together, and this should be a powerful asset in treating medical illness."
Indeed, body and mind are connected. Relatively new in medicine is the specialty called psychoneuroimmunology, another way of saying that body and mind-or psyche, nervous system, and immune system-are connected. This specialist understands that the health of the psyche is reflected in, and partly created by, the health of the body, and vice versa.
Among those whose scientific study supports the body-mind connection is Dean Ornish, M.D., author of Dr. Dean Ornish's Program for Reversing Heart Disease. He studied those with atherosclerotic heart disease and concluded that daily periods of relaxation are essential in preventing further deterioration
Too much stress,
stress reduction, chill out, let it go, detach – familiar
phrases to all of us. Our world is fast, fun and exciting. It is also challenging,
trying, demanding and frightening. These two sides of our lives produce
stress, emotional reactions, anxiety, worry and anticipation. Our bodies
and minds can tolerate only so much of any of these. After a while, each
of us reaches a saturation point and the results become uncomfortable at
best; for some it may be unbearable, even unendurable.

Stress at work
Stress at work is different for every individual and can be triggered by a number of day-to-day events. It can start with pressures at home, a difficult journey into work, followed by many other pressures such as deadlines, meetings, office politics, increased workload, difficult boss, difficult colleagues or even a job you don’t really like any more.
These stresses lead to frustration, which can in turn lead to poor work performance and problems with relationships both at work and at home.
A relaxed person is much more likely to be able to deal with all these pressures without getting too stressed.
Stress is the adverse reaction people have to excessive pressure. It is not a disease! However, if stress is intense and carrys on for some time, it can lead to mental and physical ill health including, heart disease, nervous breakdown and depression.

Chemotherapy and radiotherapy can weaken immunity by causing a drop in the number of white blood cells made in the bone marrow. Apart from bone marrow or stem cell transplants, this effect on the bone marrow is temporary.
