About Relaxation

 
ABOUT THE FLIGHT / FIGHT / FREEZE RESPONSE

 

 

 

All of us have an inborn emergency reaction to danger. This is commonly known
as the flight-fight-freeze reaction, which automatically 'switches on' in a 'danger
situation' e.g., if a truck is running you down, or you are otherwise feel under
threat.
However, any situation perceived as endangering your safety can activate this
flight-fight-freeze reaction in your body and these 'threats' can be physical
or psychological.

A 'psychological' threat is for example:

  • being criticised
  • arguing with the boss
  • a new job
  • a strange situation where you feel something is expected of you 
Life provides us with many such threats and
this makes
relaxation training
essential for our comfort.

RELAXATION

 

Relaxation training enables you to cope more effectively with the stresses of life.

Relaxation has been proven to improve your health and wellbeing.

To learn how to relax is not unlike learning a new language and so it requires practice in order to gain the full benefits from it.

To relax calls forth that part of your nervous system called the parasympathetic nervous system which has the opposite effects on your body from the other part of the autonomic nervous system, the sympathetic nervous system that is activated in the 'flight or fight or freeze senarios'.
