Progressive muscle relaxation (PMR) involves tightening and relaxing your muscles in a particular order. This process can help you notice if you have tension in your muscles and then let that tension go. Releasing tension in your body can help you feel calmer.
The idea is to tense and release every part of your body, starting at your feet and ending with your head. You tense each muscle group and hold it for about 5 seconds. Then you breathe out as you let your muscles relax for 10 to 20 seconds, before you move on to the next muscle group.
