Close your eyes. Breathe slowly in and out. Beginning with your feet and calves, slowly tense your muscles. Hold for several seconds, and then relax the muscles. Slowly work your way through your major muscle groups using the same technique. Continue breathing deeply. Enjoy feeling relaxed for a few minutes before opening your eyes. Listen to your body and make sure this approach doesn’t cause pain.
