I just thought I would let people know that of all the physical relaxation techniques(i.e. passive muscle relaxation, progressive muscle relaxation, autogenics) I have found autogenics the most effective. I have used the autogenics training on this website:

At first, I think it functioned as a list for learning what calm is like and learning that the relaxed state feels warm and heavy. Sometimes when I would tense up I would think "my heart beat is regular, my breathing is regular-I am completely calm".

However, after practicing it for about nine months, it has been successful in generating a pleasant feeling of relaxation and warmth.
