A look through the jungle of relaxation techniques


Study, job, family and hobbies: For hardly anybody, everyday life is not stressful. Therefore, almost everyone is looking for a way of relaxation. But so many offers are once on the test.

Because the market for relaxation techniques seems to explode and share on Instagram fit, healthy and happy people pictures that they show during yoga, detox or dancing. But what relaxation techniques do what they promise - and not just nice to look at?

08 / 15 Relaxation - Knitting against stress?


It looks very graceful when supermodels relax at the QiGong. The ex-biathlete Magdalena Neuner, however, swears by the knitting, in which she lets more stress from stitch to stitch (and advertising knitting wool).

But what really helps the average guy on the street? Martin-Niels Däfler is Professor at the FOM Hochschule in Frankfurt / Main and expert in stress reduction, resilience and burnout prophylaxis. His life with his wife, children and career is also exhausting and every now and then it comes out of the skin.

18 relaxation techniques in the test


Once again he has set himself a task: Within a year, he tries out 18 relaxation techniques, which he rates according to six different criteria.

Among them are such special things as fly fishing, classic esoteric offerings, we paint sound tours and the mandala and relaxation techniques, as the stars love them: tattooing and the detox.

When anti-stress programs lead to stress


Step by step Däfler works on his 18 projects and lets the reader share his experiences. He is himself 40 end and has the typical everyday life of a person who is in the middle of professional life. He is so fabulous as an identification figure.

The reader suffers with Däfler, when he imagines the Mandala after a short time "no more fancy the Ausmalscheiß has" or the evening smoothie in the detox treatment like cough syrup tastes.

Odd dislocations in yoga


In his book "The Serenity Project. 18 Relaxation Techniques in the Ultimate Self-Test "allows interested parties to get to know various relaxation techniques in an unbiased way.

If you're already a yoga fan, you will not be fooled by descriptions, the yoga exercises as "dislocations, the 1,60-sized and 50 kilograms easy bodhisattvas in the Himalayas without problems, but not normal-weighted middle Europeans who strongly on the 50 heading, "says Däfler.

Torture program leads the top list


Despite the "torture program", the yoga class actually manages to get to the top of its evaluation. But not everything is said for Däfler. Targeted denial in courses, workshops and intensive hobbies has its disadvantages.

If you want to know what he actually learned with his "Serenity Project", you should actually read this very successful book.
