  QUICK RELAXATION (SOS SIGH OUT SLOWLY)


Under severe stress you are likely to take quick short breaths from the top of your chest or
even hold your breath. So next time you begin to feel stressed (ie when getting angry) try
to remedy it by following the procedure below:

Begin by saying 'STOP' to yourself. Then take 2 or 3 breaths as described in deeper
relaxation but as you exhale, sigh out and expel the air through the mouth. As you
do this drop the shoulders. This WILL calm you down.

This technique combined with a different mental attitude - 'who cares' is an excellent way
of shrugging off those things that cannot be changed. The ability to relax quickly is a skill
that will help you to deal effectively with the stresses of modern living.

MASSAGE

Massage makes your body feel good and calm. It needn't be a complicated thing but a
simple massage can get rid of the bodily tensions and stiff, tight muscles that build up in
stressful situations.

You can massage your own face, scalp and shoulders or ask someone to do it for you.
Rubbing the hands as if washing with soap and water and stroking the palms and backs of
the hands is very soothing; as is rubbing the arms with your hands and squeezing different
parts of the arms with the hands. Start at the wrist and work your way up towards the
shoulder. Massaging each finger in turn is also soothing.

SHOULDER MASSAGE

Get your partner to sit down on an ordinary chair. Stand behind him/her and place your
hands on their shoulders, close to the neck. Your fingers should be in the front, over the
top of the shoulders and your thumb behind.

Using the whole side of your thumb, reach down and firmly roll the flesh upwards. Work
outwards across the shoulders. Be careful not to dig your fingernails in. Holding on with
your fingers also prevents your partner being pushed forward. Avoid pinching up the
tender flesh along the top line of the shoulder towards the neck. You don't want to hurt,
listen to what your partner tells you.

page. TRY AND FIND A RELAXATION METHOD THAT SUITS YOU.
