Have you ever noticed how relaxed you can feel after you’ve done something physically strenuous? It’s possible to relive a little of this feeling by engaging in progressive muscle relaxation.
Society places a great deal of value on not only what you do but also how well you do it. That’s a whole lot of pressure rolled up into a job.
Imagine being involved in a terrifying incident where you were physically harmed or threatened. Then imagine reliving that awful memory over and over again, each time as fresh and horrific as when it happened. This is the essence of PTSD.
