In today's society, time pressure, stress and a permanent hectic pace are increasingly the cause of mental illnesses and physical diseases. Burnout or depression are examples of possible consequences of this lifestyle. That is why it is all the more important to take time out regularly and relax properly.
Autogenic training is a method by which practised persons can put themselves into a state of altered, deepened perception of their own body. During autogenic training, one's own imagination can induce an intense relaxation of the entire body and thus contribute to a stabilisation of involuntary bodily functions. Regular use of this switching to a different understanding of the body can help to deal with problems of everyday life or one's own personality. Autogenic training shows similarities to meditation, certain yoga exercises and self-hypnosis.
Progressive Muscle Relaxation
Relaxation through tension: Progressive muscle relaxation according to Jacobson can help you to relax on a physical and mental level. The principle is simple: in short sessions, individual muscle groups are tensed one after the other from head to toe for a few seconds, after which one lets go and feels the relaxed state. This is a great option to learn to relax for those who are more action orientation, need movement and/or find it difficult to be still.
