Stress Relieving Techniques to Help You Unwind

In today’s society, we are so often bombarded by technology and the responsibilities that come with it. It can be hard to not let yourself become stressed out from all the different emails, appointments, phone calls, texts, work, etc that come along with living in a high paced world. To help yourself unplug from this technologic life, take five to ten minutes out of your day to practice a meditation technique.

There are many different ways to help you relax from the stresses of the day and this web page has a lot of different options to pick from.

Try to practice one of these techniques before bedtime. Meditating in a dark quiet room before bed helps induce sleep and quiet the mind. Next time you are lying in bed scrolling through your phone or flicking through the channels, shut off the technology and try to make these meditations a habit!

Check out what meditation resources are available at UNH Health Services! They have plenty of wellness programs ranging from light therapy to reiki. Next time you need to get away from the stresses of your life, take a visit to Health Services. Benefits of meditating regularly include lower blood pressure, high energy levels, and decreased anxiety and stress levels.
