Relaxation Helps to Improve Work & Personal Life

Relaxation: a group of 12 people helped to improve their Work & Personal Life by spending just 1 hour each week with me.

Between March and April 2013 a voluntary Relaxation session was held for one hour on a Wednesday evenings over a 6 week period. Local residents of Healds Green and Heights Lane, Chadderton were invited to attend to explore relaxation for the mind and body.

Relaxation using Mindfulness Meditation, Hypnotherapy, Laughter Therapy and How to manage Stress were the main topics of our sessions.

My approach to the ‘Relaxation group’ was open making it clear that if anyone felt this wasn’t for them they were free to leave at anytime and I would not be disappointed. A guided meditation was used to introduce the physical aspect of relaxation. The conditions for relaxation were not ideal, upright chairs without arms, a mixture of strangers and friends in close proximity to each other. Despite the situation it was obvious that the majority of people were following my guidance and they were ‘relaxing’ deeply.relaxing sea scene with lounger

Sleep deprivation, stress from work and stress from everyday life issues, were just some of the conditions affecting the members. We also had some attendees with particular issues including pain and recovery from serious illness. Mindfulness was used to aid relaxation in the group at the sessions and for use in everyday life situations.

Stress management was introduced to the group providing ways of how to cope with stress. Ways in which to manage the effects of stress and to recognise stressful situations were shared with the group. Having a clear understanding of the possible detriment to long term general health helped to promote deeper interest in self relaxation. Most members found it difficult to find time at home to indulge in self relaxation and preferred to attend the relaxation group evenings. Some nice results were fed back to the group throughout the weeks and overall each group member has found great benefit from attending. As a result of the benefits gained by the group we are now holding a monthly meeting to allow group members to enjoy relaxing in a neutral environment.

Typical improvements fed back were: increased confidence in general and specifically at work, enjoying a good nights sleep the first time for many years, arm and neck pain now less painful and has provided space to sleep, being prepared and in control at work when confrontational issues arise, being able to control breathing so panicky feelings don’t surface anymore, the ability to see situations at work for what they are without worrying about them.

My services were donated free of charge to assist in the promotion and use of The Old School by local residents. The hall over recent years has been carefully and tastefully restored by a group of local residents and is for the benefit of residents in the immediate area.
