Please accept this mini-relaxation exercise with our compliments

When you have three minutes.

Dealing with grief and loss is extremely stressful. During this time it may help to take mini-relaxation breaks. If you have three minutes, try this: While seated, take a break to check your body for tension. Relax your facial muscles and allow your jaw to fall open slightly. Let your shoulders drop. Let your arms fall to your sides. Allow your hands to loosen so that there are spaces between your fingers. Uncross your legs or ankles. Feel your thighs sink into your chair, letting your legs fall comfortably apart. Feel your shins and calves become heavier and your feet grow roots into the floor. Now breathe in slowly. Breathe out slowly. Each time you exhale, try to relax even more.
