Stress and anxiety can lead to tense shoulders, which affects the functioning of the neck and negatively impacts breathing. The PS Centre has therefore designed this exercise to enhance body awareness and encourage shoulder relaxation.
First, place your right index finger on your left shoulder. Press your finger into your shoulder so you clearly feel it. Release the shoulder and imagine that the pressure from your finger is a marker. Slowly draw three perfect circles with the marker in each direction.
Release your shoulders and notice how you feel. Does one shoulder feel different than the other? Do the exercise on your right shoulder and notice how it feels at the end of the circling exercise.
