I woke up this morning and my entire body was tense. I know that it had something to do with the fact that I had a dentist appointment later, but feeling extremely tense is no way to go through the day.
If you've ever felt that uncomfortable, full-body tension, then you should try the exercise I did to release it. I promise you'll feel great afterwards, though you may feel a little silly while your doing it. Here's how:
- Tighten every muscle in your body (or at least so you feel like that is what you're doing) and hold it as long as you possibly can — just not so long that it gets painful.
- Then release your muscles as slowly as you can while exhaling deeply. You should feel the pressure slowly leaving your body.
- Repeat five times or more, until the tension is gone.
