  • What We Can Do to Manage Tension and Energy.1. Some things we can do immediately:we can breathe deep and free and easy.we can sit, stand, or walk in a balanced way that minimizes tension.we can relax the muscles in our face, shoulders, etc.; we can stretch and yawn (fear is just tension -- no tension, no fear; and tension is just frozen energy).we can laugh at whatever we were taking too seriously such as My opinions, My plans, My schedule for when everything should happen, etc. (laughter releases tension in the abdomen and shoulders).we can smile, which releases endorphins (even when the smile is faked).we can cut our list of things to do; we can do just one thing at a time.we can contact our Higher Power and let go and turn something over and feel the relief; rhythmic silent prayer, along with smiling and deep, easy breathing, can be very calming and energizing.
