Life has become very complex and the struggle for existence is very acute and keen; our muscles and nerves store this tension from stress, incorrect habits and positions. Swami Vishnudevananda prescribed "Proper Relaxation" as one of the five principles to alleviate physical and mental symptoms, promoting health and spiritual growth. Those who practise proper relaxation will never experience fatigue. During complete relaxation, there is practically no energy or "Prana" being consumed, so much energy can be stored and conserved.
