Category : Relaxation

If you are going through or just completed a divorce, tension could easily be your middle name. During the divorce process, it’s almost impossible to hide from it. Whether it’s a unpaid bill that pops up that your ex conveniently forgot to pay or a call from your divorce attorney, it’s a lot ot deal with.

Many women turn to Yoga as a way to cope with all the stress that comes with a breakup. It’s a fabulous way to get healthy and keep a positive frame of mind. If you can’t afford to take a Yoga class or there isn’t one close by, it doesn’t mean that you can’t still do your own relaxing excercises. A great way to do some on your own and begin a practice of simple muscle relaxing regime is with PMR (Progressive Muscular Relaxation). It is simple to do yet extremely effective. Below is some more information. To watch a video click here. Here’s to a more relaxed you!

PMR (Progressive Muscular Relaxation) is useful for relaxing your body when your muscles are tense.

The idea behind PMR is that you tense up a group of muscles so that they are as tightly contracted as possible. Hold them in a state of extreme tension for a few seconds. Then, relax the muscles normally. Then, consciously relax the muscles even further so that you are as relaxed as possible.

By tensing your muscles first, you will find that you are able to relax your muscles more than would be the case if you tried to relax your muscles directly.

Experiment with PMR by forming a fist, and clenching your hand as tight as you can for a few seconds. Relax your hand to its previous tension, and then consciously relax it again so that it is as loose as possible. You should feel deep relaxation in your hand muscles.

I agree Yoga is the best. I am not familiar with PMR but I will check it out.

I find that doing some breathing techniques and meditation is real good too.

The ex will go right away and you will become aware of the inner you and then there is no limits.

In addition to having a way to physically release tension, be sure to keep in touch with your best friends for they are the best “therapists” of all because they really care about YOU!
