3-Minute Relaxation

3-Minute Relaxation

  • Focus your attention on your breathing. Take a few deep breaths, exhaling slowly.
  • Mentally scan your body. Notice areas that feel tense or cramped. Quietly loosen them. Let go of as much tension as you can.
  • Rotate your head in a smooth, circular motion once or twice (avoid any movements that cause pain).
  • Roll your shoulders forward and backward several times. Let all of your muscles completely relax.
  • Recall a pleasant thought, event, or place.
  • Take deep breaths and exhale slowly.
