This short guided meditation is best practiced sitting in a chair. The meditation invites you to learn how to progressively let go of tension in the physical body, part by part. Allowing the muscles to soften and release particularly with the out-breath. I hope you can invite ease into your body today and learn to release and let go of habitual holding & stress. Thank you for your practice and I hope it can bring you back into balance today. Best wishes Lisa

Releasing Tension
This short guided practice invites you to practice the progressive muscle relaxation. A technique to release tension from the physical body part by part. You might like to try this practice if you notice holding in the body from stress or over thinking. I hope your meditation supports you into ease today. Best wishes Lisa

I learned that muscle relaxation makes me very tired and sleepy so maybe it would be a good technique for trying to get to sleep.

I am more tense than I thought, the active release helps muscles feel melted and relaxed

Progressive muscle relaxation
PMR could be a great start to any type of meeting, just to get everyone a little less anxious, better than any ice breaker I’ve had to be a part of.

Tension
I learnt that the body can relax and de-stress by simply being aware of how you feel when you are tense 🙌🏻

Worried
This helped me with my back and how to breathe calmly after being so worked up over a small thing it soothed me and made me feel a lot better then before

Control
I learned that I need to focus on the now and what I can control, which is the physical sensations of my body.

I learned that I will have ways to cope and release daily stress within my physical being when I need.
