Have you ever watched a dog shake after they get a bath or go for swim? It's a whole body shake and they look so darn happy after they're done!
Maybe we need to learn to shake it off.
Tension creeps into your shoulders throughout the day and bunches up in there during challenging calls.
Try this exercise to release that tension.
1. Shake your hands energetically just by your sides for a few moments.
2. Raise your shoulders up while breathing in, then let them drop as you breathe out.
3. Shake your hands again at shoulder height and repeat #2.
How do you feel now?
Shoulder tension interfers with good breathing, which can tense your mood and have a negative impact on the next call.
So shake it off and have a great day!
