Are You Doing Meditation – Breathing - Stretching/Yoga

I have recovered before using these skills but this time I am so tense and whacked I am finding it darn near impossible to
discipline myself to doing them.

Most of the top anxiety therapists rate these skills as critical to recovery. When I have a good meditation/breathing session I can feel much relief....so why don’t I just do them. Good question – severe anxiety seems to keep me so off that sitting to do them is excruciating.

I prefer stretching to Yoga as stretching is more focused on the muscle stretch and that is what send visceral messages to the brain to relax.

I would like to connect to other people seriously using the skills??

Re: Are You Doing Meditation – Breathing - Stretching/Yoga

I do them when I remember. I learned the basic techniques from john kabat zinn, he has a book called full catastrophe living and some audio cd's that I use. The breathing and sitting meditation cd's always put me to sleep. I try and use the breathing/mindfulness techniques at work where I get the most anxiety but most of the time I get so caught up in what I'm doing that I forget. What of these techniques have you found helpful?

I seem to forget to breath when doing yoga so deep breathing with that doesn't help me and now I've forgotten how to remove the thoughts from my head for meditation lol
