Progressive Muscle Relaxation: Release Tension and Relax the Mind

For many of us our daily stress leads to muscle tension and unfortunately pain and stiffness. Instead of taking a pill for that headache, backache, or neck pain try progressive muscle relaxation after work.

For this technique I like to start first with soothing music and deep breathing followed by a sequential focused muscle tightening and then relaxing. After 10-15 minutes you will have completed a whole body relaxation technique that will clear your mind and help you reduce built up tension from the day. Over time your body will be conditioned to relax just by hearing the music and doing the breathing exercises.
I also recommend progressive muscle relaxation for athletes who want to preparing their mind and body for visualization of their particular sport.
