Progressive Relaxation

Progressive muscle relaxation is a technique that can relieve stress, anger and tension. According to the University of Maryland Medical Center, this exercise is best performed lying down. You consciously tense and relax the major muscle groups in your body. Close your eyes, and tense your toes and feet for a few seconds, then release. Next, tense your calves and lower leg, then release. Continue tensing and relaxing your muscles until you get to your head. As you tense and relax each muscle, breathe deeply and allow your mind to focus solely on the physical sensations you are experiencing.

Progressive Muscle Relaxation (PMR) Richard W. Anton, M.A., B.A., Dip Ed

This is a 30 minute Progressive Muscle Relaxation exercise that you may practice. The goal of relaxation therapy is to calm the brain, to permit thinking processes to stream in an even, smooth pace, and trigger the relaxation response. The purpose of progressive muscle relaxation is to learn how to relax by comparing relaxed and tense states. PMR can help reduce anxiety and anger by targeting the physical part of those emotions.
