SpotLight: The Muscle Relaxation

The muscle relaxation helps by calming the body down, helping us to think more rationally, relaxes our muscles, switches off the nervous system, stops the production of stress hormones (as an example adrenalin) and proves we are not in danger.
The muscle relaxation is also a good sleep aid as it physically tires you out and may help you distract your mind. Below is an excerpt from the muscle relaxation.
