If you’re anything like me, you carry a lot of stress in your body. Even if you’re not particularly stressed, your body is still more tense than it needs to be.

Maybe this is just part of what makes us human. Then add in bad posture, being sedentary, working at our computers, staring at devices, and this all creates more stress than our bodies want to carry.

The only time we seem to truly relax is when we’re sleeping.

I have a super simple mind-body hack that will help you to relax your body IN SECONDS.

The mind is a very powerful thing, and this is especially true when it comes to speaking to the body.

Try this technique for yourself. It’s almost too easy to be true.

  1. Take a deep breath, exhale slowly
  2. Say to yourself “My body is completely relaxed”
  3. Cycle through another round of slow, intentional breathing
  4. Repeat the process as many times as necessary

Did you notice how your muscles instantly released? It’s crazy how quickly the body responds.

I shared this technique over on Instagram and Facebook the other day and it received a 100% success rate from everyone who tried it.

The body believes what you tell it.

This is just one example of how you can use the power of your thoughts to influence your reality.

I hope this relaxation technique is helpful for you. You can watch the video of me explaining the process below. Please share this post to help others! I know we can all use a little more relaxation and mindfulness in our lives.
