HealthLifestyleRelease The Pent-Up Stress In Your BodyBy Balraj Posted on April 2, 20184 min read00249Share on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on Google+Share on LinkedinWhen we spend too much time sitting down, whether it is on our desk, in our car, or even in a plane, we tend to feel that our pelvis has locked up in a position and that causes us a discomfort which leads to the building up of stress in our body. Some might say that a little stretching is all you need and then you can go back to being productive. But this is not the case and this built-up stress can cause long term effects like making us unable to dance. This may sound like a trivial thing but the locking of your pelvis can cause you stress directly unless you release the tension that builds up in the Psoas Muscle, located on the side of the lumbar region of the vertebral column and brim of the pelvis, also known as the ‘muscle of the soul’.SourceScientists believe that the Psoas muscle, one of the largest muscles in our body, is the place where we store all the stress and tensions in our body. This storing of the stress and trauma can directly affect the mood and change in behaviour in our daily lives. There are some ways to release the tension in the Psoas muscle which can also help you release the unwanted stress that you feel each day.SourceYou cannot undo all the harm that you have done to your body in a single day. You need to adapt your body to a better lifestyle which is a gradual process and takes time and daily practice. Craniosacral therapy helps teach our body on how to relax in a parasympathetic way and also helps to relax our nervous system. It will gradually help bring awareness in your body and will melt down the stress automatically.SourceAnother well-practiced method is yoga. Various positions in yoga help relax the Psoas muscle which can lead to a stress-free life. It also requires a great dedication and perseverance, along with a lot of focus. But the upside is that you will lose all that stress, fear, and anxiety, not to mention a general loss in weight and a gain in activity and energy. People who are active in sports also stretch before they warm up for their game and you will notice that most of these stretches require a stretching of the Psoas muscle. This helps them lead a carefree life without any undue stress. The mere stretching of the Psoas muscle can go a long way into helping you to release the unwanted stress.
