Summary: Regular practice of relaxation can lead to reduced anxiety and stress, increased energy level and productivity, and improved concentration and memory. This relaxation exercise will begin with a brief period of deep breathing and will move into a guided imagery of a peaceful scene. The peaceful scene is a useful technique, bcause if you practice it often, you can learn to relax instantly whenever needed just by calling to mind your peaceful scene.
