Progressive Muscle Relaxation

Progressive Muscle Relaxation is a tool from Rewired for Sleep that helps relax your body, and mind. By pairing it with abdominal breathing and Autogenic Training, for instance, you can ignite the parasympathetic nervous system–the relaxation response–and tamp down  the fight-or-flight reflex.  As you get the hang of this exercise–and it is simple to do–you may find that taking control of your body and mind feels great.  Who knows, along the way, you might even find yourself engaging in other (seemingly) random acts of self care.  

If you are keeping a bedside sleep journal, you may like to download this exercise to print.
