Muscle relaxation

With progressive muscle relaxation – PMR for short – you learn how to tense and relax different muscle groups.

Many young people find this exercise very effective.

This is how the exercise works:

  • You can do this exercise while sitting or lying down.
  • You will feel the difference between the tension and relaxation of muscles that you might not otherwise notice.
  • First, tense your muscles from head to toe, one after the other. Hold the tension for a moment, and then relax the muscles again.
  • You can feel how much more pleasant the relaxation is than the tension!
