Progressive Muscle Relaxation

One way to achieve a sense of calm can be through progressive muscle relaxation, which uses the connection with your body to soothe your mind.

Give it a try:

  1. Pick a body part (e.g., foot, leg, mouth, eyes) and tense it for a few seconds
  2. Release and relax for 10 seconds
  3. Notice how that feels different
  4. Switch to another body part and keep going until you've you're your whole body
