Self Management of Excessive Tension

of Excessive Tension


Stress – The Pluses & Minuses

Man’s quest for knowledge and freedom since time immemorial has led him to become an intellectual giant but also added dimensions of stress and hypersensitivity resulting in deterioration of the Quality of life with many social and health hazards.

Stress is part of life and necessary for growth, but for it we stagnate. It induces awareness, alertness and shatters inefficiency. A ‘Must’ built into our system as ‘Stress Reaction’. Modern life beset with “Speed and Greed” turns alertness and sharpness to hypersensitivity leading to hazards of escalating NCDs (Non-Communicable Diseases) including cardiac arrest, strokes as also psychiatric illnesses.

What is the way out from this Stressful Burnout?
  • First is to Stimulate and Relax as advocated in Mandukya, the shortest of Upanisads – the science of Holistic living. Balanced sensitivity with Expanding awareness – the key for growth.
  • Next is to synergise all efforts of team members to develop team spirit through Group awareness. Creativity enhancement to build and learn the art, and science of converting “challenges to opportunities” by practice.

Evidence Base

Extensive and in depth research published in peer reviewed index journals has proven that half an hour practice provides thrice as much rest as 6 hours of good sleep. Brain wave coherence, enhanced information processing in the brain for higher concentration, memory, and creativity has been demonstrated. Control of health hazards and modern NCDs through tailor made modules published in renowned journals as BMJ (British Medical Journal) shows the usefulness of the SMET Modules.
