Find calm, confidence, and a renewed zest for life with Sophrology, the latest stress-reducing self-care practice that connects mind and body to increase your resilience, happiness, and sense of fulfillment.
Sophrology is an amazing mind-body training system that uses quick and simple exercises to increase your confidence and self-esteem, bringing you a renewed sense of vitality while at the same time calming and relaxing you. This dynamic system of relaxation is hugely popular in France, and is used to train Olympic teams, develop resilience among pupils and teachers in schools, alleviate symptoms for cancer patients, encourage stress-free pregnancies and child-birth, reduce anxiety and phobias, and foster recovery from burn-out. Its popularity in France has been growing ever since it was first developed by a neuropsychiatrist over 50 years ago, and it’s now crossed the language barrier and is rivaling mindfulness as the best way to deal with the stresses of modern living. Sophrology exercises take no more than a few minutes, yet their effects can be felt immediately. Whether you need more energy, or are struggling with anxiety, sleep difficulties, or an inability to focus on what you really want, Sophrology can help you achieve your goals, and create a positive future filled with well-being.
**26 of the exercises in the book are available as audios on a dedicated website. They take you through each exercise, one step at a time, so you can fully benefit from all that sophrology offers: calm, clarity and joy.
The illustrations and descriptions in the book, combined with the audio guides, make 'Empower Your Life with Sophrology’ a complete and highly accessible system for happiness and well-being.**
