Methods and techniques to develop mental strength

Respiratory and psycho-physical exercises

Taken from applied psychology and predominantly from the interventions of clinical psychology and sports psychology, these are a bridge between tradition and modernity; there’re partly rediscovered and partly taken from modern adaptations of the self-knowledge, and psychosomatic self-control traditional techniques of human optimization from the Orient and the West.

Among the best known, are Yoga  techniques. Here we will recall the training of “bodily posts” (asana), that actually trains archetypes of humans possible attitudes to the circumstances of life. We have stretching, flexion, extension, lateralisation, torsion, balance and inversion with specific effects and meanings. In each posture, it is important to pay attention to all aspects, the postural and respiratory technical details in and also the specific mental awareness and evocation.

The breathing exercises of yoga, (pranayama – in translation, the control of the energy of the breath) are found in modern practice in the form of complete breathing and dissociated on segments, abdominal or diaphragmatic, medio-thoracal and superior or apical, each with psychophysiological specific effects. There are also exercises for respiratory purification, energy load and hyperventilation, as well as exercises to regulate the respiratory rate and to control the positive and negative apnea.

One of the exercises used by me with quick results on my client’s emotions, is a breathing exercise meant to reduce the feeling of “stomach butterflies “.

First,  I’m telling my client to take short breaths. Next, I’m telling him to placing his both hands on the stomach and regulate the breath, at that point, my client must be aware of how his body feels, how it rises and descends in the time of inspiration and exhale, inspiring on his nose and exhaling on his mouth. Now, that he is completely relaxed, it is a good idea to make the client remember his best personal performance, and encourage him to “stay” with that feeling for a couple of minutes. From this point on, we reexamine the positive feelings he experienced, and their effects on the physical plan (on his own body).

Constantly practicing the exercise, (first together and after a time alone, because he will be capable to do it himself), the capacity of control over negative thoughts and emotions, will increases and also performance.

  1. Needed to post you that very small word so as to say thank you the moment again for the amazing basics you have shared on this page. It is quite particularly open-handed with people like you to offer extensively what most people would have supplied for an electronic book to get some cash for themselves, most notably now that you might well have tried it in the event you considered necessary. The tricks as well served to be a fantastic way to realize that the rest have the identical dream just like my very own to find out much more with respect to this matter. I think there are a lot more pleasant sessions ahead for many who looked at your site.
