How to use "Relaxation" in context?

Relaxation means literally "relaxation of the nerves." It is a state of mind in which one is free from tension, anxiety, and the feelings of excitement and apprehension usually associated with day-to-day life. To achieve relaxation, one needs to give attention to the five senses: touch, smell, sound, sight, and taste. Each of these senses can be employed to reduce stress and produce a state of relaxation.

One of the most effective ways to reduce stress is to relax the muscles of the body. One simple method is to use visualization.
