How to use Progressive Relaxation to Relax

In counseling, I teach a mindful meditation that I created called RUFF meditation. RUFF is an acronym for the steps in learning to meditate. The first letter, R, stands for “relax.”

I encourage people to try progressive relaxation to teach their body how to relax. In the video below, I share with you the steps of progressive relaxation.

This is one of my favorite activities and I try to practice it every day! :)!!

Remember- before you start any program, consult your physician to ensure it is safe for you to participate. Also, if you carry tension or weakness in any area of your body, make sure that you are protecting that part while doing these exercises.
