Let’s practice this progressive muscle relaxation exercise for 4-5 minutes. Sit comfortably, with your feet relaxed on the floor and your hands relaxed either by your side or in your lap. Take a few deep, slow breaths first to relax. Now try to tense and then relax the following muscle groups, one by one (skip those groups that might be problematic or painful): feet, legs, stomach, arms, elbows, hands, shoulders, jaw, face. Repeat each muscle group three times.
