Progressive muscle relaxation
What is Progressive muscle relaxation?
The process of tensing and relaxing each and all the muscles in your body. An example would be starting from your toes and working up through your body, progressively feeling the tension ouze out of your muscles.
Beneficial for controlling stress, anxiety, insomnia and reducing symptoms of certain types of chronic pain.
Concentrating on specific parts of the body and focusing on removing tension in that area can be excellent for identifying and reducing stress and anxiety in the body.
