HOW TO RELAX?
Do You Really Know How to Relax?
Physically I have learned how to relax by laying down when I am overly tired or stressed out, then I take a few deep breaths in through my nostrils, deep down from my stomach area, hold my breath for about 3-5 seconds, then let the air go out slowly from my mouth. Breathing like this slows down your heartbeat and brings relaxation to you almost instantly.
The best way to relax is to be walking closely with the Lord each and every day. He will guide your steps and lead you the way you need to go, trust God and keep your eyes on Him, that is the best way I would suggest that you learn how to relax by putting your hope in God! The next time you catch yourself getting angry, try to stop and think if whatever it is getting you upset, is it worth it? This helps me learn how to relax and regroup myself! ~ Bill Greguska
