I believe everyone should learn relaxation techniques but, like any skill, it takes time and practice to become proficient. Modern technology offers some aids to help one learn to relax more quickly. Many benefit from relaxation CD's with a technology called binaural beats that entrains brainwaves. You might try Dr. Andrew Weil's Mindbody Toolkit and/or the Insight CD recommended by Dr. Mercola- see http://products.mercola.com/insight-focus/ Also, a company called Heartmath makes a great personal biofeedback device- see www.heartmath.com/
