How to Get a Piece of Peace in Your Life

Tuesday, June 21, 2005


You are most likely seated as you are reading this. Take this moment to truly relax as you are in this resting position.

Allow your pelvis to sink in, without slouching, letting gravity pull your core down.

Allow your toes to wiggle loosely. Fingers, too.

Allow your shoulder blades to slide down your back.

Allow your neck and head to loosen and be free. Loosen your jaw, leaving a slight space between your upper and lower teeth.

Allow all the muscles in your face to loosen and relax.

Breathe deeply through your belly, and let the stomach soften.

Sometimes we hold our bodies so tightly, even while sitting or lying down, that we are seldom truly relaxing. Your body waits for the brain’s commands. Remember to tell all your body parts to relax at least once a day.
