Progressive Muscle Relaxation Worksheet

What is the theory behind this Progressive Muscle Relaxation Worksheet?

The mindfulness practice of progressive muscle relaxation (PMR) is used to manage stress and anxiety. By gradually tightening and relaxing specific muscle areas in your body, Muscle strain and shallow breathing are two distinct physical signs of stress. People may deliberately connect their breathing and muscular relaxation when they practice progressive muscle relaxation and can release tension from their muscles more easily by modifying their breathing. 

How will this worksheet help?

With the help of this worksheet, PMR can help the individual to reduce the physical signs of stress and anxiety, such as tense, and affecting muscles. Lower blood pressure, less signs of anxiety and sadness, improved mood regulation, and an overall sense of well-being are all benefits of PMR that can help an individual to manage stress.

 How to use the worksheet?  

To relax your mind and body, progressive muscle relaxation is a technique that you can apply wherever you can find a comfortable place where you can lie down or sit. Ten to fifteen minutes is all it takes to systematically tense and release your muscles. Beginning at your toes and working your way up to your head, note how different tight and relaxed muscles feel.
