Relaxation at the Beach - Find Peace & Tranquility in a Stressful World
Relax, the perfect antidote to stress and strain
Two beautiful tracks of guided imagery that take you on a journey to a beautiful beach where you find a place and the time to have the most relaxing experience of a lifetime.
Written and read by Phil Chave, head of research and treatment development at The Haven Healing Centre.
It's an unfortunate fact that people of all ages suffer from stress, right from young school children, to someone reaching a grand age and living on a pension. All the different ways we are subjected to stress, if written down here, would make this page a mile long.
Things like, school, class, play, work, traffic, the boss, driving, children, teenagers, parents, TV, shopping, parking, bills, paperwork, fines and threats of fines if you don't conform to this rule or that notice. Oh, and did I mention TV?
That little box in the corner is responsible for more stress, anxiety and pain than just about all the rest of it put together. The amount of junk on the TV goes up and up, as more and more channels means anything good and meaningful has to be diluted into a cesspool of killing, bad language, nudity, sensationalized news broadcasts, war, famine and in your face disaster reporting from just about every corner of the globe.
No wonder that our adrenaline stress responses are being fired off constantly. The long-term effects of being in a state of alarm can impair certain body systems over time. In particular, excessive long-term stress can cause damage to our cardiovascular system, our digestive system and our immune system.
In fact, many, many people turn to these relaxation types of treatment precisely because they have discovered or been diagnosed with a serious condition related to one of the above. If that's you, then I have to tell you that it's NOT TOO LATE to make changes.
How many people do you know spend hours and hours on games machines? After a session of spilling the blood and guts of enemies around the world, you see some of these kids (and adults) with their eyes wide open, staring into space, like on a high, where they can't talk or function normally. It can take some time before their bodily responses return to normal, and then they're off again to look for another 'fix'. The effect on the brain is no different than drugs, and the long-term effects are just as bad.
What other sources of super stress can you think of? What about the soaps? These are probably the lowest form of intelligence programming, because they normalize over the top drama for ratings sake. People screaming at each other and taking it in turns to take big chunks out of each other on a daily basis, as if this were normal, when in reality, you may encounter one such incident as this in 10 years. Soaps are nothing like reality, but so many people take them as real and behave as though this is normal behaviour.
It's hardly any wonder that road rage, street rage and other forms of interaction are becoming more violent. I always remember something Zig Zigler said: “You are what you are, and you are where you are, because of what has gone into your mind. You change what you are, and you change where you are, by changing what goes into your mind.” My interpretation of this is, rubbish in, rubbish out.
To add to the disappointment, it is increasingly affecting the young, who go on to experience high rates of depression, even in children of primary school age. People are 10 times more likely to suffer from major depression now than our parents were in 1945-75. This means the stress we are suffering now is coming from a different source and is different from the stress that affected our parents and grandparents. The main things that have changed since our parents time are the things we have been discussing above.
The office environment, traffic jams, crowded trains, family breakdown, financial worries, health worries, and the rest, all take their toll, even when we don't realize it. Most doctors believe that stress induced illness, depression, anxiety, and even suicide are on the increase. They have only to look at their red hot pen and prescription pad to realize that.
So what's the answer? Can a walk along the beach cure all my ills?
If only it were that simple!
One thing is true: national stress levels are skyrocketing. We experience stress every minute of every day. The intensity varies, but in these days of financial insecurity, job insecurity, political uncertainty, rapid change, high technology, rapid onset illness and personal uncertainty, we are under a constant barrage of stimuli that must be acknowledged. So much so, that almost everything that comes through the letterbox, MUST be dealt with, answered, and filled in on a time limit, otherwise there is a constant threat of fines or other repercussions.
When you think of all the things that 'wind you up', the list will likely be large and demanding. Studies show that too much stress in the form of arguments, worry, communication difficulties, transport issues, work problems, rapid change and financial hardship, can cause an increase in the risk of serious illness, as we showed earlier.
My simple mind says two things to me. It is clear we must turn off the stress response as best we can. We can do this by managing our time better, giving ourselves more down-time, and finding effective ways to relax and unwind. Resetting the body clock as it were. Secondly, if you can achieve this, you stand a much better chance of using the amazing healing power of the body to reverse the symptoms of heard disease, intestinal disease and immune dysfunction.
This was the prompter that gave me the idea for the Relaxation at the Beach CD. I would like to invite you to join the growing number of people who use this relaxation technique to reduce their stress. Why not put this on your iPod or mobile mp3 player and actually play it to yourself quietly at the beach on a warm summers day? Make sure you take it on holiday to the beach. What easier or better way to recover from months of work stress?
The easy answer is to play it when you are sat quietly, and just let the beautiful music and my gentle voice take you away to the beach, and imagine that you are there. Let the soft sand, blue sky, and lapping waves, show your senses what it is like to truely relax and let go of all your cares and worries. The more you do this, the more you will want to do this. Truly, you really will! When your body finds a way to switch off from the hyper state, it will look to take the opportunity more and more often.
So, you make yourself a delicious drink, you find a soft chair, you take the phone off the hook (or unplug it) and turn off the TV. Place the CD in your player, or use your MP3 player, and if it's safe for you to be out of earshot for around 30 minutes, use your headphones, so you can fully benefit from the experience. Press 'play'. That's it! I promise you, it's that simple!

Q. What causes you the most stress? Which is the worst for you?
See if any of these apply to you. This stress reduction program, using the Relaxation at the Beach CD, will work for anyone who has a stress related illness or other problem. With repeated use, results are guaranteed.
In 2010, psychologists at the Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center released the results of a study showing that breast cancer is much less likely to return if you can live a life that is stress free. The study concluded that happy women have a stronger immune system than stressed women. Those who went through a stress-reducing programme had a 45% reduced risk of recurring breast cancer, even 11 years later, and those that developed breast cancer again were much more likely to survive.
If stress reduction therapy works so brilliantly for breast cancer, just imagine what effect a relaxation routine, specifically designed to reduce stress, will have on less serious diseases and other complaints. It should, theoretically, 'knock them out of the water', shouldn't it? ARE YOU WILLING TO GIVE IT A TRY?
I really need your help to get the word out to anyone you think should know
Use your CD, EVERYDAY! If you physically can't find the time some days, play it anyway. Even if you have it on quietly in the background whilst doing the housework, the subliminal nature of the gentle voice, the rhythmic tidal sounds, and stress reducing directions, will register with your unconscious, and you will still gain the benefits. When you can sleep again, when you feel relaxed and realize the benefits of using this CD on a regular basis; Please call a friend and tell everybody how you did it! Thank you.
Note 1: Please Apply Caution: THIS CD CONTAINS A DEEPLY RELAXING MEDITATION ROUTINE. PLEASE DO NOT PLAY/LISTEN TO THIS CD WHILST DRIVING OR OPERATING MACHINERY, OR AT ANY OTHER TIME WHEN YOU NEED TO BE ALERT, OR PAYING ATTENTION, OR OTHERWISE OUTWARDLY FOCUSED. THANK YOU - Phil
Note 2: Whilst this CD has proved very effective for many people, you have to want what you wish to achieve with relaxation meditation, really, really want it. You have to be motivated and willing to work with it, not just pretending or hoping that this meditation CD will do it for you. If you are motivated and believe you can do it, you will do it! The important thing is not to give up!
Building up small, but measurable successes, helps the body to make permanent changes. I recommend persistent use of this CD. For optimum results please try to listen to your CD everyday for a minimum of 30 days. Try to be as consistent as possible in order that you might achieve your goals. - Phil
