How to relax yourself:Lie or sit down in a comfortable spot. Spend 5 seconds holding and then relaxing different muscle groups, one at a time, starting with your feet. Clench and release your toes, then work your way up as you tighten the muscles in your legs, stomach, back, and arms. Finish with the muscles of your face and neck. Breathe slowly and deeply, and concentrate on the feelings that come from fully relaxing the muscle groups.
Why you should relax:Tensing and relaxing your muscles helps you understand what complete relaxation feels like. This can make you more aware of when you might need to relax muscles when they tighten in response to stress. As you relax your body, your mind also relaxes.
