Stress is something we all deal with at one time or another. Stress affects anyone, anywhere and anytime. It affects our mood; our well-being; our emotions, and how we cope with life.

There is no denying that experiences of stress are becoming more and more widespread. Information on how to manage stress is widely available. The most common tip that can be found in information regarding stress management is to create a relaxing atmosphere to be able to engage in meditation, positive visualisation, progressive relaxation and yoga.

The above technique is a fantastic way to manage and cope with stress. Creating a relaxing atmosphere to engage in stress reducing behaviours creates a sense of calm which uplifts mood and increases a feeling of general well-being.

How does one create a relaxing atmosphere though?

This where it gets tricky as many highly stressed people, especially perfectionists and over-thinkers often get overwhelmed with trying to relax as it can be quite confronting. This is why it is important to know what a relaxing atmosphere is for you, and how to create it.

Before even beginning to engage in meditation, positive visualisation, progressive relaxation and yoga; know how you are going to create a relaxing atmosphere for yourself.

Not everyone has the same idea of what a relaxing atmosphere is. One person might find lying in room without clutter, lights dimmed, an oil burner and soft relaxation music playing relaxes them. Another person might find that finding a quiet spot in nature away from cars, houses and infrastructure is what relaxes them. Know what you like; what makes you feel relaxed, and how you are going to create that relaxing atmosphere.

For example, if Iím in a disorganised room filled with clutter, I am not going to feel relaxed even if I light candles and listen to soft music. A room where everything is in place, and I can have candles and oil burners creates a relaxing atmosphere for me, and I can lie down and feel calm without even having to engage in meditation. Or simply going to the beach and staring at the water on a stretch of beach where I can be in solitude relaxes me. I find myself drawn to thinking positive and practicing visualisation techniques when I am surrounded by the beauty of nature.

Once you know how to make a relaxing atmosphere for yourself; initiating some stress management techniques such as yoga, visualisation and meditation is easy, and very rarely will you feel confronted and stressed over trying to relax.
