Relaxation is a part of self hypnosis and stress management. You feel relaxed and content when you are in a state of hypnosis. You can use relaxation as a form of hypnotic induction. Sit quietly and relax your muscles sequentially, from your toes to your scalp. When you are completely relaxed, give yourself a suggestion that you will recapture this state of relaxation when you say a certain word to yourself. It can be relax, peace, love--anything that seems right to you. With practice, you will be able to relax just by repeating the word. You can use this quick relaxation technique in many instances, including test anxiety, dental anxiety, and similar cases.
