A few days ago, I had a massage and was told I need to relax and allow my muscles to let go. She said, “your muscles are always engaged, even as you lie here you are still tense.” Confused, I replied, “I am relaxed, I just had an hour massage, this is as good as it gets.” The massage therapist suggested more restorative yoga and meditation – to signal my muscles and body to fully relax. If I could somehow achieve this, I’d be a better athlete. This lady had just met me one hour prior but seemed to possess magic powers of looking past the facade and seeing who I really am. Or did my body tell her all of this as I lay there soaking in this amazing hour? Or is she just that good? At any rate, she nailed it, I don’t know how to relax – it’s hard for me. But, I am determined to learn.
