The unrelaxed person has tight muscles or taut nerves. Mentally he is too self-centered: a few simple exercises will relieve his tensions. The body is to loosen its muscles working from the feet first and then by degrees to the head. The mind is slowly and repeatedly to make affirmations of universal healing and restorative truths. The breath is to lengthen and deepen itself for a few minutes with inhalation and exhalation following a certain rhythm. Within a few minutes the person will become refreshed and relaxed.
