Being worried and anxious can often result in us feeling tense and overwhelmed. By focusing on our breathing and using a variety of relaxation techniques we can encourage our muscles to relax and help our mind to unwind.
Relaxation is a useful skill to learn and the more you practice the easier and more effective you will find it.
