Relaxation through mindful practices

People often say to me, "I try to relax all the time and it doesn't work".

The irony is, the key to relaxation is "NOT to try"....

It is more about being present.  Anchoring oneself to the present moment with the 5 senses will help with this. When one is anchored in the present moment through the 5 senses, one is outside "our inner head experiences".  It is often referred to as mindful practice.  This can be quite relaxing.  When one is inside "our inner head experiences", it can be quite stressful, as the focus is often past or future orientated.

Cultivate mindful practices.  It's healthy for you!
