Relaxation does not necessarily mean doing nothing!  Relaxation is about finding something that you enjoy and gives a chance for your body and mind to calm down.  This could be anything from taking a gentle walk, to painting, to reading a book… 

Some people find that it helps to work out where they feel tense in their body – this way they can then relax the area.  For example, if you feel tense in your shoulders try breathing in whilst tensing the muscles, and relaxing them as you breathe out.

You may find meditation is a good way for you to relax, you may want to try some breathing exercises, or find other activities you enjoy.
