Progressive Muscle Relaxation is an easy yet profound stress reduction technique. This technique helps reduce stress physically and mentally. Most people start at the head and work downwards but you could start with the feet or even the hands. The process involves tightening one muscle group at a time, (the forehead for example) relaxing that group and then moving on to other muscle groups. In practice, I tend to start with the forehead and then move on to the face and jaw and then down the back of the head into the shoulders and back. I continue this process until we reach the toes. A passive Progressive Muscle Relaxation Technique involves simply relaxing each muscle group by going through the process without tightening each group first.  Five to twenty minutes for this process is average.

Progressive Muscle Relaxationhelps the mind and body understand the difference between stress and relaxation, thus allowing one to relax. This may seem strange at first, however stress is so prevalent in our lifestyle today that stress is sometimes accepted as a natural state. Using stress reduction techniques helps the mind/body system understand that it can just let go and feel better.

A small note of caution. Since one form of Progressive Muscle Relaxation includes stressing muscles first, it's important to check with a doctor first if you have heart issues, or if you have any muscle damage. For instance, you wouldn't want to further strain a muscle.

Anyone can make one:
For better or worse, anyone can write a blog post about anything they want. Everyone has a voice and the best voices will rise to the top.

The writer can show their personality:
In blog posts, the writer has more leeway to add in their voice and personality than other types of writing.

Blogs are a great form of mass communication:
You can help people, learn new things, entertain your audience—the possibilities are endless and amazing. Blogging opens up all of these to a very wide audience.

You can make money:

Get the right blog going and you can make a lot of money through advertising and sponsored posts.

It allows people to craft better thoughts:
Instead of reading haphazard, uneducated Facebook statuses, it’s much better to see people’s thought process in a well-written blog post.

You can establish a community:
Blogging allows you to connect with other individuals who share the same interests. Sharing ideas and opinions within your community helps establish yourself as a thought leader.

Good for SEO:
Keeping content on your site fresh and relevant, you can use your blog to boost the search engine ranking (SEO) of your site and your business.

It brings people back to your site:

If your blog is strong enough and updated regularly, people will come back looking for more and bring traffic back to your site as well.

It’s free:
It costs you a grand total of zero dollars to post to the blog, so if you have something to say, there’s nothing to stop you.

You can establish yourself as a thought leader:

A blog is a great place for your original thoughts, and it can be a wonderful way to show off your individuality. If people like your ideas, you can become a thought leader in your industry!
