The Art of Relaxation can make big difference in the quality of life for anyone, and especially those who face serious illnesses, such as diabetes, heart disease, or cancer.

If the stress is caused by something you can change, you acknowledge and analyze it, and then choose how to respond to it.

If the stressor is out of your control, such as bad news or the weather, you have to accept it the way it is and let it be, detach yourself from the outcome, and look at other aspects of your life, where you can choose how to relax and enjoy life.

Being mindful and attentive to what is going on in any given moment, is the first most important thing we can do to recognize mental, physical, or emotional stress, and find a relief from it.

What we should understand is that we cannot change something that is out of our control. The very important thing to do in this situation, instead of blaming ourselves or circumstances for what happened, is to observe and notice, if we are able to change the situation, and if we can’t, then just accept things as they are.

We always have a choice in how we respond to our body’s condition.

A false expression of happiness or calm doesn’t work. The self-destructive process of blaming ourselves for our unhealthy habits doesn’t work either. In fact, it makes stress even worse.

If we cannot manage stress, it turns into a depression which is very common for any serious illnesses. Depression is linked to diabetes and heart disease patients.

Focusing on stress for people who had a heart attack or stroke, can make their condition even worse.

The only answer on this is learning to manage stress and having a more relaxing life.

This is normal to acknowledge your thoughts and feelings. It helps you to accept and be aware of ways you can work with your illness.

Relaxation will help you to appreciate life and enjoy it. It brings positivity in your life and helps your body to recover.

The difficult but important thing in managing stress is learning to be detached from an outcome and enjoying life as it happens.

Mindful response to stress means that we can change how stress affects us.

We make ourselves aware of our thoughts and feelings, and start the relaxation response to it, such as yoga, aromatherapy, meditation, or sound therapy.

Open, honest communication with your partner and sharing your needs and desires with each other help you both to relax the best possible for you both ways. If you make some time every day to use relaxation techniques and learn to accept things as they are, you will enjoy every day of your life.

The very good tip of being happy is to live in the present moment because there is no stress in the present moment, in comparison to the past or the future.

If you receive negative feedback from others, you should remember that this is only their opinion and it doesn’t have to be true. You can evaluate and analyze their statement, and then decide if you accept it as a fact. If it’s true, you can decide what to do about it. If the statement is not true, you can choose to ignore it.

Don’t let anyone make you feel stressed just because they look for someone to blame on their problems. Remember that you aren’t responsible for something you can’t control, or for something that was someone else’s wrong choice.
