De-Stres 101: Who Taught You How to Relax?

Most Americans know how to vacation real well, go the full nine yards for two weeks and then remain stressed out most of the year.  We are really novices at relaxing and letting go of stress in our day to day lives.  Our mojo is self-actualization and we ascribe great value to being efficient and busy.  In fact, we tend to WORK AT relaxing which is counter-intuitive to how to become relaxed, but is very American.

I’m Dr. Miriam Franco, a psychologist and Relaxation and Guided Imagery specialist and host of Imagine That! on the Voice America Wellness Channel.   Every time I conduct a workshop to teach people how to use the power of their imaginations to relax, I ask: “Who taught you how to relax?”  And typically I hear: “No one.”

On my first Imagine That! Show, I introduce listeners how to let go of stress, to tune in and become aware of ways of slowing down by guiding them to turn on their relaxation response and to imagine   relaxing, sensory images, like your ideal place of relaxation, which in this state, your body captures it and allows it to deeply resonate within your body.  It’s a fun, easy way to evoke a paradigm shift, to become attuned to a different way of knowing and experiencing  by relaxing and evoking images that help you open and connect to a natural way of being in the present and letting go of stress stored in your body or mind.

Most of us need strategies for how to get started, to really learn to sink below the surface of activity and become deeply relaxed because this is foreign in our culture.   The quickest way to tune in and let go of stress is to learn Relaxation and Guided Imagery.  Tune into The Power of Your Imagination to Relax on Imagine That ! Show on September 3rd at 12 pm PT or 3 pm EST on Voice America’s Wellness Channel https://www.voiceamerica.com/show/3906/imagine-that  and  I’ll guide you to playfully imagine with your senses centering techniques like imagining an ideal place of relaxation, a safe place or even picturing someone easy to love.  These gentle yet powerful  imagery skills are easy to practice at work or during transitions in your day. And they do not require much time or skill level as do most forms of meditation.

Come join me and discover the power of your imagination to relax, cope, heal or learn. And have some fun too.

Dr. Franco

What People Are Saying About The Freedom to Breathe & Art of Being a Healer:

“It is incredible that just through breathing and being with another human being my body and soul gets cleansed and healed from things that have stuck with me for perhaps my whole life, I had no idea that I carried them with me. It is such an enlightening and freeing experience that opens the way to a life full of new possibilities I couldn’t even have dreamed about.” – Katrin B.

“A splendid and warm workshop in which I not only felt connected to life, but also had the wonderful opportunity to experience the cumulative effect of many past workshops led by the Kanes. During the breath exercise, I really saw how thoughts are just thoughts (and usually not true), and how well in my own skin I have grown to feel. Magic – Thank you!!” – Erica O.

“Just through breathing I experienced a wonderful relaxation and met myself in a way I never did before. It was a beautiful journey and I discovered amazing things.” – Norman W.

Relaxation and Creation with guest Stephanie Richardson By Heather Nichols

For so many, relaxation is synonymous with doing nothing, taking a break, or going on vacation.  What if, when you are being more of you and in your creative flow, you are more relaxed, and therefore more creative and productive?  What if relaxation is a space that allows you to accomplish so much more every day with a degree of ease you may have never considered possible?

There are 3 different types of people that every business and every creative endeavor requires:  a creator, a connector, and a mover.  They have different gifts, different skills, and different capacities.  A common mistake that people make with business is in deciding that they, or their employees, have to do certain things in a particular way.  This can create stress, diminish relaxation, and get in the way of productivity.

Join Heather Nichols and Stephanie Richardson for a conversation of “Relaxation and Creation” — a dynamic adventure into the energetics of creation and the nuances of business that will allow you to have more, create more, relax more, and be way more productive as a result!

Grandma’s Pocketbook by Ariel Kane

Grandma’s Pocketbook
by Ariel Kane

I grew up in Gresham, Oregon, which at the time was a rather sleepy farming community where the children picked berries as a summer job and went to Rexall Drug store for ice cream floats with the money they earned. Our house was a two story white structure on the edge of the woods with a separate garage and a little playhouse that was perfect for my sisters and me.

On the top floor of our house, off my sister Cathy’s bedroom, under the eaves was an attic space where my folks stored Christmas decorations, luggage and things that were out of season. One of the treasures that was kept in the attic was my Grandmother’s purse. Grandma, my mother’s mother, had died long before I was born. Ila May Powell was born in 1906 and lived much of her life near Portland, Oregon until her death in 1957. She had met my Grandpa, Larry Halif Cermack, and after they eloped she eventually went on to have 8 Kids – my mom being the oldest.

One day when I was young, I remember that my sisters and I were playing in the attic and we came across Grandma’s pocketbook. It was black with a single strap and had a simple gold clasp at the top. We carried it out to Cathy’s bedroom, climbed up on her bed, sat cross-legged facing each other and we carefully removed the contents one piece at a time. Inside was a comb, a crochet hook, a clean white hanky with tatted lace that she had made herself, a coin purse with a few coins, a pencil and a small, handwritten, shopping list: Butter, eggs, coffee, milk.

Gingerly we removed the list and marveled at the writing thereon. It was wonderful to see something Grandma had held in her hand that she had actually written. All these years later I remember that list. And I also remember something else: Grandma had things left to do on the day that she had died. I have always been touched by that fact in ways that are hard to describe. She had a full life. She did many things. And yet she apparently had things left to be done. The reality that she didn’t do these things didn’t make her life incomplete, nor did she fail in any way. Somehow the fact that she still had a grocery list on the day that she died has allowed me to be relaxed about the desire to get things finished or over with.

It is so easy during our lives to press to get everything done. Most people feel pressured to complete everything on their list by end of day. Many feel that they have failed if there are tasks yet to be accomplished, goals yet to be achieved. But for me, I have come to realize that no matter what my age, no matter what my health, no matter what the circumstances, I am likely to always have a list. It is a component to being alive. So at the end of each day, I can put away my list and let myself be. If I am taking a day off or going on vacation, I can let go of that list, for it will be there when I return. “Finishing” something, completing my list of “to dos,” crossing that finish line is not a final destination. Having a list of projects and “to dos” is simply a part of living life.
