Do you find it hard to sit still at times? Is it hard to turn off your worries at night? Have others noticed that you seem stressed and have a difficult time slowing down? Some of us find it hard to sit through a movie or unwind enough to fall asleep. Why is it so hard?
It's so simple, and yet so powerful. We change the way we breathe when stressed, anxious, depressed, frightened, relaxed... When sad or grieving we may tend to sigh deeply. When tired we yawn. When anxious, fearful, or stressed we tend to take short, shallow breaths and may even hold our breath without realizing it.
Progressive Muscle Relaxation (PMR) was originally developed by Dr. Edmund Jacobson in the 1920”s. It has since been utilized in the treatment of anxiety, stress reduction, and anger management. PMR applies systematic muscle tensing and relaxing to increase awareness of the stress and tension we carry in our bodies.
