Instant Relaxation:
10 second tense and relax technique

This is a very simple and effective 10 second technique:

Step 1: Tense all your muscles, screw up your eyes and face, as you slowly breathe in.

Step 2: Hold it for 1-2 seconds at your maximum in-breath. Increase the tension in your face and body as much as you can.

Step 3: Breathe out, let go, open your eyes and relax all your muscles.

That should feel good.

As with most relaxation techniques, use this often to get the best results.

Best wishes,

Paul
