How to relax the mouth

Relaxing the tongue has many benefits, while some of these benefits are somewhat self-evident others are more subtle and unique. Aside from potentially boosting the essential functions of the tongue mentioned above, that is to say help you speak or sing better, enhance your taste buds, optimize your chewing and swallowing, relaxing the tongue can also help in calming your overthinking mind.

How to relax the eyes

Making changes to your daily habits is the easiest way that you can make changes to relieve stress on your eyes. To find out where the stress is coming from, take a week or so and make a point of taking note how long you work on a computer, your smart phone, tablet, watch TV, etc. You might just be surprised at how much time you spend staring at a screen and how that may be impacting your eyes.

How to relax the jaw

We often clench our jaws without realizing it as we concentrate or when we are stressed. Or we hold our mouths tightly shut when we aren’t talking. Take some time throughout the day to try and stop what you are doing and just notice if your jaw is clenched or not.

This tension is often related to our breathing. If we’re breathing quickly and through the nose, our jaw is often tense. Doing some simple breathing techniques like breathing through the nose (2-3 sec) and out through the mouth (4-5 sec) can help, making sure we consciously relax the entire face especially the jaw on the out breath.

We might also change our facial expressions on purpose and see how that feels in our jaw, eyes, forehead and cheeks. A wide smile followed by grimacing can tell you a lot about where you have been holding tension. We can also tell if we have been frowning, causing us to build tension into the eye area and the muscles above the eyes in our brow. While you’re at it, try smiling more often in general, it suits you good!

How to relax the forehead

First things first, doing short body scans throughout the day and identifying when we are building tension in a hot point can be helpful. In case you’re not familiar with body scanning, it’s essentially a relaxation technique where you sequentially direct your attention to different parts of the body, like say from the toes gradually up to the crown of your head. You’d be surprised how much mere awareness of tension can relieve that very same tension.

How to relax the stomach

Whether the cause is anxiety, digestive difficulties or any other reason, tension in the stomach is a problem many of us face regularly. Stress is typically the underlying culprit behind stomach tightness and tension. Modern fast-paced life and busy work schedules keep us feeling rushed and often go hand in hand with depression and anxiety.

How to relax the shoulders

Shoulder and neck stretch: Relax your shoulders and tilt your head to the right. Hold it for a few seconds then let your hand gently pull your head until you feel a slight burn on the opposite side of your neck. Do the same for the other side, holding every position for 10 seconds.

How to relax the scalp (massage)

Self-care and care for our loved ones is vital in our busy lives. A simple 5-minute massage can revive, invigorate, or calm, relax and prepare us for sleep. If you are using an essential oil, make sure you dilute it with a carrier oil such as coconut oil or jojoba. The smell sensation will be fantastic, and will contribute beautifully to the pleasurable environment. Put some tunes on to make the experience even more enjoyable. When giving a massage to a partner, the connection you’ll feel will reach far beyond the physical fingertips: when giving the sensuous gift of a head massage, the energy between you will flow deeply.

How to relax the scalp (massage)

Giving a head massage is not hugely strenuous on either the professional practitioner or the amateur. There are two basic types of scalp massages: effleurage, which is using circular, stroking movements, and petrissage, which is gently kneading and lifting the scalp. It is recommended that you start at the front of the scalp and move towards the back. If you’re hoping to improve hair growth and increase thickness, it’s recommended that you massage 1-3 times a day. If you massage your scalp during a hair wash, probably twice a week would be good. Don’t be vigorous though, because rubbing too hard can break the hair.
