The muscles in the shoulders are a very common place for people to carry tension from being under stress. One way to feel less stressed is to reduce this tension. This simple stretching exercise will help you do just that.

1. Start in a standing position with good posture and make sure that you are breathing properly throughout the exercise.

2. Slowly lift both shoulders up towards your head and hold for a few seconds. Release back to normal. Repeat a few times.

3. Slowly rotate your right shoulder in a circle (up, back, down, forward) a few times. Repeat with your left shoulder. Then switch directions and repeat.

4. Slowly tilt your head towards one shoulder and feel the stretch. Now move your head back to the center and go to the other side. Repeat several times.

5. Slowly turn your head so you are looking over your shoulder. Return to the center and then go to the other side. Feel the stretch. Repeat several times.

6. Remain standing and take several deep breaths before finishing.
