Psychology Tip of the Day: Let Go of Tension
Most people carry around more tension than they realize, which can lead to physical complaints such as headaches, muscle aches, and difficulty sleeping. The neck, shoulders, and jaw are common areas of the body to hold tension. A few times a day, mentally scan your body for tension (paying particular attention to those areas that carry tension most often), and try to intentionally let go of any extra tension you’re holding. Notice the difference in how you feel once the tension is released.
