Stay active

Exercise is a great way to relieve stress. Your body releases endorphins during exercise, which can help you feel calm. If you exercise 30 - 60 minutes a day, your stress levels can improve. When stressed, take 5 slow, deep breaths with your eyes closed, then roll your shoulders forward 5 times, then back 5 times. This will slow your heart rate and release tension in your neck and shoulders.

What is the best approaches that offer relaxation & stress management training?

It depends

Open-uri20130406-500-1u9jnr
It depends on the organization and your fit with what they do. You can try networking with employees there, and learn something about their channels and system. You can prepare videos of your presentations, and gain testimonials about your work. You can place these on a web site which also has an informative electronic newsletter. Gradually organizations will be finding YOU.

Can you please recommend some effective relaxation / stress management techniques?

Breathing

Stress_management
Many good books/sites exist. All will include certain components like Correct Breathing. The exhale is the part we often get most wrong. It is really good to completely empty the lungs to remove the "old" stuff and make room for refreshing new oxygen. 1 or 2 deep out-breaths - even a big groan or shout helps - then, up to 10 cycles of 4 secs nasal inhale, 7 hold-in & 8 full, slow pursed lip outs.

Not sure

I am not sure what you mean. However, you can call or email to ask about their services. You can also look them up on the internet. You can ask friends if they know about them and if the are good.
