relax don’t do it
July 26, 2013
it’s not like I don’t understand people when they say “just” relax – no matter how hard I try, sometimes my body has other ideas. Not that it is so easy (as I’ve learned from experience). My being highly strung and a control freak certainly doesn’t help matters. It’s a skill to be mastered – for me at least.
I usually go “floppy” for physiotherapist but sometimes you’ve got to remind me. I try to breathe to quell my instinct to offer up any resistance – most of the time it works. It’s not as easy as some people think or make it out to be. It may sound counter-intuitive – but I have to expend a lot of energy to get to the required state of relaxation.
