Stress is simply reaction to a stimulus that disturbs our physical or mental equilibrium. When you feel threatened, your nervous system responds by releasing a flood of stress hormones, including adrenaline and cortisol, which rouse the body for emergency action.

What Are Relaxation Techniques?
Relaxation techniques include a number of practices such as progressive relaxation, guided imagery, biofeedback, self-hypnosis and deep breathing exercises. The goal is similar in all – to produce the body’s natural relaxation response characterized by slower breathing, lower blood pressure, and a feeling of increased well-being.
Stress management programmes commonly include relaxation techniques. Relaxation techniques have also been studied to see whether they might be of value in managing various health problems.
