Sophrology: science to escape from daily stress

At least 65% of Peruvians present a symptom of stress a week.Therefore, sophrology is an effective alternative to prevent and counteract this evil.

The pending work, family problems, lack of money to meet expenses, among other factors, can generate stress in a person. The worst is when all the factors accumulate and the level of stress increases to cause psychological and physical damage. Therefore, we must prevent it, and for this, sophrology is one of the alternatives.

It is one of the best current practices for those who have an overwhelming routine day by day. Like other options such as yoga or mindfulness, sophrology is a training based on relaxation exercises of both body and mind. In addition, it teaches you how to manage emotions and control them, to prevent stress or other similar evils.

It was founded in the 1960s, by Dr. Alfonso Caycedo . Since then, theInternational Institute of Sofredology Caycediana (in charge of the doctor), has revealed that to develop this practice, four factors must be taken into account. These are breathing, visualization, thinking (mind control) and physical and psychic relaxation.

A technique, for example, can have two steps:

1) The sophronization . With closed eyes and relaxed body, lie down and be in contact with the ground. Consciousness is taken and every part of the body is visualized, progressively, from the feet to the head.

2) Breathing . You breathe gently and calmly, becoming aware of the air that goes from the nose to the lungs. At the same time, positive memories of what happened during the day or week are brought to mind.

To learn the techniques better, the help of a professional is necessary. But once they are mastered, they can be done at home and it is preferable to do them alone, to improve concentration and relaxation.

It is advisable to perform them frequently, about 3 or 4 times a week. Thus there will be greater benefits, such as maintaining an optimistic state about the events, regulating the nervous system, relaxing the body and allowing the mind to adopt a calmer state. In this way, physical tensions and other consequences of stress, such as headache, back pain, abdominal pain, among others, are alleviated.

Sophrology is a good alternative. Recall that a recent study by GfK indicates that at least 65% of Peruvians present a symptom of stress a week and 21% qualify within some level of this disease. It is an important factor that needs to be prevented.
