Today in class we had an exercise where we all practiced relaxation techniques (related to pain management for palliative care.) I realized that I carry a lot of my stress in my shoulders. It was almost painful to relax my arms and back. Afterward I was amazed. My study buddy said that her stress was in her legs. She tenses up and flexes her calf muscles.
Try to stiffen all your muscles as tight as possible and then release each group one by one....When you are done you will FEEL the difference.
I thought it was pretty cool........I learned something new anyway.
Give it a try sometime and see. It might make you feel better!!??
