How Self-Awareness Relates to Relaxation

How easy do you find it to relax after a stressful day? How capable are you of maintaining your composure under pressure? What effects do these have on your life?

When life presents you with stressors how easily can you notice the signs of the stress?

For many of us we can fail to notice the physical signs of stress until it has already taken control of us. We may discount the warning signs. We may not know what these signs are. We may even try to convince ourselves that we are in control when we are not.

Some people may be able to easily identify when they are succumbing to stress. They will be able to recognise the warning signs that stress is impacting them physically. They may experience tension in areas of the body, they may experience headaches, or they may notice changes in their heartrate or breathing.

Being able to notice the signs of stress requires self-awareness.

A good way to increase our self-awareness can be meditation. Meditation opens up the opportunity to clear the mind and regain some clarity. When we can think more clearly, we are more likely to make more informed decisions and respond more thoughtfully.

Meditations can also be focused on a specific subject you want to address such as relaxation. I have developed a meditation for relaxation, and it can be found here on my website:

I am also considering requests for bespoke meditations. If there is an area of mindset that you would like support to address, please don’t hesitate to message me directly or book a Free Mindset Meeting to discuss what you would like to achieve.

Once we have practiced meditative techniques, and they do require practising, we may be able to identify our physical warning signs of stress more easily. This then makes it easier to identify future stressful situations more readily. The earlier we can tackle the signs of stress the less impact it will have on our lives.
