Stress and strain, tension and anxiety seem to be a part of everyday modern living. It is accepted as being normal that we are all under pressure – to varying degrees. And stress is not just confined to our heads. It is also locked into our bodies—if we can bring ease to our body it can help ease our mind.
In our experience, we have observed how the shoulders can act like a storehouse of tension. If your shoulders are tense and hunched when walking, talking, driving and at the computer, you are directly contributing to your stress levels.
Try and practice being mindful of keeping your shoulders relaxed and down when you are performing daily activities.
