An Exercise to Release the Tension in Your Full Body

Relax Already: Release Tension in Your Body

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:

  1. 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.
  2. Then release your muscles as slowly as you can while exhaling deeply. You should feel the pressure slowly leaving your body.
  3. Repeat five times or more, until the tension is gone.
