Striking the right balance-Relaxation Audio

Relaxation techniques are part of good study skills

To introduce you to the positive and beneficial effects of  relaxation techniques, the staff of the University of Liverpool Counselling  Service have produced audio for streaming and download offering you the possibility of practising some basic  elements in relaxation.

These include:

  • Relaxation during daily activity 
  • Emergency anxiety control  
  • Deep relaxation

All students undergo stress, most of which is completely  manageable. Sometimes, however, the effects of stress can prove to be  detrimental to health, to relationships with others and to academic work. One  way of achieving the right balance is by raising our self-awareness so that we  are able to recognise and monitor the effects of stress on our well-being.

The relaxation exercises on the audio have been specifically designed  to help control and lessen the effects of the tensions and anxieties with which  life can present us.

We cannot change the questions on the exam paper but regular  practice of the techniques outlined can lead to the development of better coping  strategies and an increase of self-esteem and feeling of well-being.
