Progressive relaxation and muscle relaxation exercises work great, along with the deep cleansing breathing, we get more in touch with our body's actions and feelings! Great, Becky!

I use progressive relaxation techniques or deep muscle relaxation techniques depending on how stressed I am.

I don't have any specific book, audio, or video recommendations. Sometimes I do look up relaxation vids on youtube, because it helps to have a voice keeping me focused.

As far as meditation goes, I have a much easier time focusing with my eyes open, staring at something fixed, repeating thoughts or phrases. If I don't do something very direct like that, the anxious thoughts take over and derail my good intentions.

I'd suggest finding a mantra or affirmation that you like and want to embrace, and repeating it to yourself frequently!

Nope -- but you'll have to let us know what you think of it. I meditate somewhat -- and try to get my mind to slow down -- so, maybe it's possibly the same sort of process. Let me know -- now you have me curious!

Has anyone tried hypnosis for anxiety? I am looking into a self-hypnosis book to help with anxiety. I am pretty skeptical about it, but it should be interesting anyway. Just wondering if anyone had any experience with it.
