    Relaxing Sounds Good Right Now.

    Relaxing sounds good right now, but the only time I relax is when I fall asleep. And I heard of a survey back in the 1990s where over 50% of americans had day to day stress. The simpelest thing can stress me!. As simple as a statement.

    Tense

    My neck, ears, shoulders and upper arms are just rock tight with tension.  I can't seem to release it.  Yoga and meditation are only very temporary cures.   Any suggestions for relief?

    How?

    I don't know how to relax. I went to the spa last week & it was a constant chore of reminding myself to just relax. I guess I stay so tense & rarely get the opportunity so when the chance comes along I just don't know how.
