    There are many methods available that boast to make you relaxed. Some of the techniques I have listed in my hub. But which one is the best available technique?

      Whatever you do, don't talk religion or politics!

    I find correct, deep breathing, and thinking pleasant, positive thoughts helps the most.  Of course, it helps to have a positive mindset in the first place. smile

    Meditation works for many people.  It's whatever works for you..everyone's different.

    me...i like to go for a motorcycle ride...makes me feel free; no thoughts about much - just riding and taking in the sights...and if i really need a break, i ride long and hard and at the end I am tired but a good tired.

    After about four beers, I usually feel very relaxed. Five through nine are just adding happy to that.  Anything into double digits begins to impinge on the following day.

      I guess so huh? big_smile  At that point, when you turn over in your bed your brain follows a few seconds later.  Eventually, you get so dizzy, you need to make a call to the porcelin throne down the hall.  Not the fun part of alcohol. sad

    I would just curl up on the sofa with a good book and a cup of coffee (or a glass of wine and some cheese work as well) smile

    Writing, making love, listening to music, yoga or simply being by oneself... doing nothing really....smile

    I find going to the open water like a lake or a river with no people around on a good sunny day works the best for me. I tried to fill my bathtub with water and stare at it for 10 minutes - did not work that well.

    Turning off the phone,the TV, the radio... just silence.... a long walk also works well.

    Or, meditation. Though--you can combine the two. Also have some binaural beats and recordings that walk you into a lucid dream and/or astral projection.
