Top Ten Relaxation Techniques for Children

Top Ten Relaxation Techniques for Children | Relaxation | Scoop.it

Relaxation is a stress free state that is achieved through a process of recreation, which diverts a person's brain from tension, relaxing his/her mind and body. Relaxation techniques enable a person to relax and attain a peaceful state of mind. The relaxation techniques aim at reducing levels of anxiety and are employed with intent to manage stress. They help reduce blood pressure, normalize the heart rate and breathing rate, thus proving beneficial for health.

Relaxation techniques were believed to be related only to adults. Stress used to be considered as associated with work pressures, family tensions and other responsibilities and hence was a point of discussion only in case of the grownups. Today the picture has changed. Relaxation techniques are no longer related only to the issues with grownups. Presently, even kids have to deal with stressful situations. Situations vary right from bearing the separation of parents to coping with school activities and also to keep up to the competition. When we started running the rat race, we made our children a part of it. The world became overly competitive and children had to be on their toes to excel in every field they venture. Today, children are falling prey to the ever-increasing strains. Stress has become a part of their daily lives. To be in the race, they have to keep striving to attain their seemingly unreachable goals and deal with the tension that is a side effect of their pace. This scenario of the present times has led researchers in psychology to devise relaxation techniques for children. Today's scenario has made it necessary to find and implement good relaxation techniques, which can suit children.

I totally agree that stress is creeping ever too often into the lives of our children. From experience with my two 10 year olds, the easiest way to limit stress and encourage relaxation is to simply let them be, make sure they get "outside and play" just like our parents constantly told us and allow them to get bored every so often so that they are reminded how to use their imaginations...unfortunately in our busy, fast paced world all that is easier said than done. However we can change that by leading by example.
