Normal Things to Expect as You Practice Relaxation

  You may have pleasant body feelings such as tingling, warmth, or heaviness, or a floating feeling. These are signs of Deep Relaxation.

  Your thoughts will wander. When this happens just bring them back to the 
exercise without getting angry at yourself.

  You may fall asleep if you're tired. If this happens often, try picking another time of day when you're not as tired - perhaps before meals rather than after - or try sitting instead of lying down. 

  Don't worry about losing control, as you become very deeply relaxed. You will always be able to bring yourself out of Deep Relaxation whenever you want to.
