Re: So, it's been a while since my last post :)

Great suggestions already! I would like to add to the idea of active relaxation. Sitting and noticing where you have tension in your body and then actively trying to relax those parts of the body while keeping a good upright posture (crown of the head reaching up to the sky; perineum sinking/resting downward into the ground; and then feeling everything resting downward into and on my hips). I do this while focusing on relaxed deep breathing and it seems to help a little.

Gambarimashyo!
