Achieving a relaxed state can be challenging in a world full of sensory stimuli. Practicing restorative poses throughout your day can help the mind settle down into a relaxed state. When you have a moment take out the yoga mat and lay on your stomach, head resting on the backs of your hands. Let your toes turn in and broaden the backs of the things. This pose allows the back muscles to spread and soften. There are many other poses conducive to profound relaxation. Take a restorative class to deepen your understanding.
