What are some ways to relieve mental stress? 

When we think in a way that creates tension or stress through thinking, it’s not just the mind that is strained but also the body.

People who under stress have physical tension, they have a tense face, tense muscles, maybe they are having stiff posture, uneven and shallow breathing, Tightness in chest, hands, uneasy feeling like a knot in their stomach. 

Soon people become accustomed to this strategy of creating a stress mind-body system to “motivate” them to solve something or take actions. But there’s are a lot of better ways.

  • First step and the most easiest, effective way of meditation and of releasing stress is just focusing on your breathing.
  • Feeling the air come through your nostrils, going down into your chest and diaphragm and then release it slowly.
  • Start relaxing your body, and relax the muscles, especially facial muscles.
  • Try to smile.
  • You can do this anytime, while travelling in a train or plane, work or home, outdoors or indoors. It doesn’t matter.
  • Take deep breathes, focusing on breathing, relaxing your body at the same time, with eyes closed preferably.
  • You can say any affirmation that you like, something like
  • “I am free to be myself and I see life’s challenges as opportunities.”

You will notice that as soon as you have physical relaxation, your mind has a release from the stress trap or stress strategy and you become better equipped to deal with what is important to you, if it’s not important let it go away. Not everythings under your control and one needs to understand what in his/her control.

Accept and acknowledge the intent of the emotion or stress, and take action thinking clearly and rightfully.

“Real wisdom lies in knowing what can be changed and what cannot be changed, and understanding the difference between them.”

NLP
NLP stands for Neuro Linguistic Programming. Modelling is at the heart of NLP from which numerous patterns, processes and techniques were discovered and developed ranging from psychotherapy to business, from sports to peak performance and so on. Richard Bandler and John Grinder, the co-founders initially studied the wizards of the change work like Milton H. Erickson, Virginia Satir, Fritz Perls. Through modelling and then uncoding the process of excellence these wizards had, they developed numerous change patterns and techniques which create lasting generative change.
Experiential Learning

Experiential learning is the process of learning through experience, and is more specifically defined as "learning through reflection on doing". Hands-on learning is a form of experiential learning but does not necessarily involve students reflecting on their product. Experiential learning is distinct from rote or didactic learning, in which the learner plays a comparatively passive role. It is related to but not synonymous with other forms of active learning such as action learning, adventure learning, free choice learning, cooperative learning, and service learning.

Ancient Wisdom – Tao

Tao or Dao (/taʊ/, /daʊ/; Chinese: 道; pinyin: About this sound Dào (help·info)) is a Chinese word signifying 'way', 'path', 'route', or sometimes more loosely, 'doctrine' or 'principle'. Within the context of traditional Chinese philosophy and religion, the Tao is the intuitive knowing of "life" that cannot be grasped full-heartedly as just a concept but is known nonetheless through actual living experience of one's everyday being. The Tao differs from conventional (Western) ontology in that it is an active and holistic practice of the natural order of Nature and its universal awakening, rather than a static, atomistic one
