@ Letting all the little things fall away

Feedback from a young man. A few months back, I gave him the handouts (2) and suggested to try the technique at bedtime, to get good sleep. On my subsequent visits, he said he was using the technique and happy about it. On my request, he recently sent the following feedback.  

“As someone that deals with the public on a daily basis, I take a lot of abuse and my job has a lot of stress. As a result, I’ve become short tempered, especially when I have a bout of insomnia which I’ve had most of my life.

By using the ‘focusing on breathing’ technique (1), I am able to calm my self physically and mentally, letting all the little things that bother me throughout the day fall away. It helps me to keep things in perspective and get a decent eight hours of sleep every night. (3)”

March 21, 2013: He said “The other day I had too many customers and some of them were rude. To keep my cool, I went to the back room, did my breathing for a while, calmed my self down and came out. I do this so I can have a good night’s sleep without thinking of all such incidents.
July 6, 2013: I cut back on my mental health medicines

* My back pain is gone for good

Feedback from a medical research scientist in the department of health of New York State. A few months before, she had a heart attack.

“I started practicing ‘Focusing on breathing’ (1) when Mr. Suryanarayana Chennapragada gave me the hand outs (2) on the technique and suggested I should try it for relaxation. I practiced it intermittently during the day (3)  whenever I remembered, using the segment mode and counting modes. Within 3 days, my back pain was completely gone, never to return, in the last 2 months. Before practicing this technique, I was depending on Celebrex medication to control the back pain. Now I do not need it at all. I feel stress (4) was the cause for my back pain which was reduced by practicing this relaxation technique.”

* No more Insomnia

Feedback from an Ophthalmologist M.D I was meeting with. I gave him my handouts (1). He said he would try out the technique. After some time, whenever I visited him he used to tell me he liked it as it was helping him fall asleep on difficult days. On my request he sent this testimonial.

“Insomnia is an occasional problem for me, sometimes affecting me for days at a time. Sometimes, I go to sleep easily, but wake up in the middle of the night. Then I can’t fall back to sleep. Other times, I just can’t fall asleep at all. Sleeping pills work, but I don’t really like to take them, and they are definitely not an option to take at 3:00 am if I have to get up at 6:00. I have practiced Mr. Chennapragada’s counting breaths technique (2) for the last two years or so, and have found it to be a very effective way to go to sleep, or get back to sleep. I also occasionally use it to reduce stress, and as suggested in Mr. Chennapragada’s handout. I sometimes use it while sitting at stoplights. I am very thankful to have learned this great technique.”
