Life can become hectic at times and one of our body’s reactions to stress is to become tense. This can lead to aches and pains and cause people to feel exhausted. In addition, muscle tension can make us feel irritable and contribute to feelings such as anxiety, anger, disturbed sleep, and even depression.
Relaxation can help the body and mind cope with stress more effectively. If practiced regularly, relaxation can help a person feel calmer and perform more effectively throughout the day.
