We all experience various forms of stress in our lives. Some of us, the exception rather than the rule, thrive on it. Some others among us muddle through. And for others, the stress causes serious health and work problems.

As today's life has gotten faster and more complex, it gets more and more difficult to thrive. Apart from the usual stress management "suspects" like eating well, exercising and so on, there are some techniques you can use to reduce the stress in your life (or at least make your reactions more constructive).

Let us study these as we are going to cover some of these techniques and help you find free help (including online and in audio books) to assist you learn them. Most of these techniques fall into the broad category of relaxation techniques.

Relaxation techniques have been around for a very long time and the subject as a whole has been well explored by psychologists. None of the things we are going to talk about are therefore strange or weird. They are just based on straightforward well-researched science.

While the actual process of learning how to relax deeply vary and have different names (for example self-hypnosis, meditation, or just relaxation), they have, all of them, one thing in common. You use these separate techniques to put yourself in a deep relaxation state, where your heart rate, breathing rate, and "thinking rate" slow down.

Before I describe the different techniques, here are a few things to keep in mind.

* What works for one person may not work for another. One technique may work for you, and another may not. So, you may have to experiment.

* Second, since that is the case, it can get expensive to buy audio books, book publications or tapes since you would not possibly know in advance what will be most effective.

For this reason, I've gathered some free audio material you can listen to online in streaming audio format at http:// www.work911.com/ra/selfhelpaudio.htm. If you find something that works, it would be appropriate if you purchased it from the producer stated on the Web site. But the programmes are free online for you to browse and enjoy.
