progressive muscle relaxation
Progressive Muscle Relaxation (PGMR) is an effective, easy to learn relaxation technique.
It can be helpful for a range of problems, especially sleeping problems or anxiety problems such as Generalised Anxiety Disorder (excessive or difficult to control worry).
The relaxation technique should be practiced at a regular time every day (twice a day if possible) and should be practiced whether feeling stressed and anxious or relaxed.
During development of this worksheet we found the instructions on existing worksheets were open to some misinterpretation. By clearly illustrating the exercise, our worksheet hopefully eliminates any possible confusion.
