does anyone else do progressive muscle relaxation? i suggest trying it! you target and tense different muscles for a moment and upon release, there's a sense of relaxation. ive found it a great tool to calm my body from anxiety symptoms and also relieve some fibromyalgia pain ๐Ÿ’—

      I would always forget about it too! haha it took us doing it together in group therapy for me to finally use it!
