These relaxation techniques have helped me approach moments where I would of otherwise lost patience or felt discouraged, instead feel calm, creative and even find humor.

These relaxation techniques One of the greatest lessons I took away from this book is the concept of breathing through difficult moments, in parenting and in life. And I do believe that there is a body-mind connection that is lost on a lot of non-athletes.

Now, I have done years of yoga, and I know that you can stay in control and breathe through pain, to a certain degree. So I read this book instead. However, I should clarify that I did not buy in to all of the self-hypnosis techniques, and I found some of the language and the alternative vocabulary a little laughable.
