Stress Relief Techniques
What are the main stress relief techniques you can use to manage your everyday stress?
Some of the stress relief techniques available today range from meditation to breathing techniques and from massage to acupuncture.
This article looks at the different techniques available.
The truth is that there are many stress relieving techniques out there. The trick is finding out which ones work for you and which ones don’t.
And how do you find that out?
• By trying them out for yourself
• And through recommendations.
In the next few articles you will find my own personal recommendations about stress relief techniques. But from there it is important that you try things out yourself.
Some techniques will instantly switch a light on within you. ‘Ah yes, I’ve always wanted to have massage!’ you might say. Try these ones out first. These techniques are more likely to work as you already have an affinity to them. If you don’t fancy doing something, well, you’re not going to be very motivated are you?
Are stress management techniques expensive?
Certain stress management techniques are quite expensive – acupuncture, massage and healing all cost around £40-£50 ($80-$100) per hour.
If money is not a problem then try them out to see what appeals and works best for you. Some of these tools can help radically so are worth the money.
If money is tight then options like learning to meditate, relieving stress by exercise and breathing techniques would be a good starting point.
I have made as many recommendations or not as the case may be below.

I listen to hypnotherapy CDs on a daily basis and I find that it truly helps me not only to reduce stress but also to attain the goals I want in life.
Hypnotherapy works on blocks you might have picked up in your childhood - things like: "I have to work hard or I'm not doing it right." With hypnotherapy you can start to undo these unconscious tapes.

I used self-massage on a regular basis while working in the corporate environment. I found that I used to get really tight shoulders from sitting in front of the computer so by massaging my shoulders I released tension and stress.
Stress can also cause stress headaches and massage therapy can be an excellent way of combating this.
