Sophrology is the latest way to supercharge your day and keep your immune system going strong from dawn until dusk. Sophrology is a structured method created to produce optimal health and well-being. It consists of a series of easy-to-do physical and mental exercises that, when practiced regularly, lead to a healthy, relaxed body and a calm, alert mind.
Sophrology Centre writes “the exercises are called dynamic relaxation (relaxation in movement). The ultimate aim is to become fully present, fully alive, and fully participating, comfortably and joyfully, in all areas of life.
The first things people generally notice after starting to practice sophrology are: more restful sleep, improved concentration, fewer worries, increased self-confidence, and a feeling of inner happiness. The most common remark after a few months of training is along the lines of:
“In general nothing has really outwardly changed in my life, but I am happier, things seem easier, I have more energy and I wake up feeling glad to be alive.”
Sophrology exercises reinforce and strengthen mind, body, and spirit improving both physical and mental health. Many people find that sophrology positively impacts all areas of their lives.
After practicing sophrology, people generally experience a more restful sleep, improved concentration, fewer worries, increased self-confidence, and a feeling of inner happiness.
