Nothing relaxes me more or puts me to sleep faster than a progressive muscle relaxation guided meditation.
The practice of tensing and releasing your muscles is really quite beneficial. Often times our muscles are in a constant state of tension, but we’re no longer aware of it because it has become our norm.
By intentionally tensing muscles we become more aware of the tension that is present and what relaxation actually feels like.
The more you do this, the more you will start to notice the tension happening in your body, allowing you the ability to consciously relax and release those muscles.
The more you can practice this the better. I hope you enjoy these as much as I do.
