A massage therapist once said to me “relax your face” which caused two things to happen:
- I burst out laughing at such a surprising request and when I finally stopped, I noticed my face felt more relaxed.
- I realised how much tension I was inadvertently carrying in my face.
Naturally, this metaphor provides plenty to noodle on.
Where are you carrying tension right now? What would it look like to ease and relax that tension?
