When we are living through a particularly stressful period in our lives, it can seem almost impossible to relax. Try this relaxation technique (an especially good practice for those who say, “I just can’t relax!”):

  • Start by just noticing your breath. Where are you breathing from? Deep within you? A shallow place? Is your breathing smooth?
  • Starting with your feet, tense and relax each part of your body, one by one
  • When you tense a muscle, pull it as tight as you can without hurting yourself
  • As you tighten, become fully aware of this part of your body
  • As you relax, notice the feeling of release and well-being that follows
