What happens when we are under tension?
When we are under physical threat the body naturally tenses up certain muscles in order to protect itself. It basically hunches and curls up into a ball to protect vulnerable areas and expose the better-protected ones.

These are the muscles that tense up under stress:
- We tend to frown- We tend to clench our jaws
- Our shoulders tend to hunch up
- Our chest tends to close
- Our arms tend to come into our sides
- Our hands tend to bunch into fists
- Our legs tend to close
- Our knees tend to be drawn up
- Our feet tend to be drawn up, so our feet are pointing upwards

So how do we relax these muscles?
In order to relax the muscles that tense up under stress we need to move
the affected joints in the opposite direction to the natural danger response.

Here are some relaxation exercises to release tension:-
1. Try to move your forehead or hairline backwards over the top of your head
- the opposite of a frown. It may help to imagine your hand stroking backwards from your forehead over the top of your head and down to the back of your neck
- but don't actually do the stoking.
2. Open your mouth as wide as you can, hold and release.
3. Push your shoulders down and back, hold and release.
4. Stretch your arms up and link your hands above you head.
5. Open your hands as wide as you possibly can, hold and release.
6. Lie on your back and roll your knees outwards.
No need for a big movement on this one
- a few millimeters is all that's needed to relax your inner thigh muscles.
7. Straighten your knees so that your hip is opened out and stretched.
8. Point your toes downwards as far as you can. Hold and release.

The ideal way to start learning these exercises is to lie flat on your back.
Once you have got the hang of it you can do them at any time: sitting at your desk,
waiting in a queue, waiting at a stoplight. Wherever you have a few moments to wait.

A jobless man applied for the position of “office boy” at Microsoft.
The HR manager interviewed him then watched him cleaning the floor as a test.

“You are employed.” He said.” Give me your e-mail address and I’ll send you the application to fill in, as well as date when you may start.”

The man replied “But I don’t have a computer, neither an email.”
I’m sorry”, said the HR manager, “If you don’t have an email, that means you do not exist. And who doesn’t exist, cannot have the job.”

The man left with no hope at all. He didn’t know what to do, with only $10 in his pocket. He then decided to go to the supermarket and buy a 10Kg tommato crate. He then sold the tomatoes in a door to door round. In less than two hours, he succeeded to double his capital.

He repeated the Operation three times, and returned home with $60.
The man realized that he can survive by this Way, and started to go everyday earlier, and return late.

Thus, his money doubled or tripled every day. Shortly, he bought a cart, then a truck, then he had his own fleet of delivery vehicles.
5 years later , the man is one of the biggest food retailers in the US .

He started to plan his family’s future, and decided to have a life insurance.
He called an insurance broker, and chose a protection plan. When the conversation was concluded, the broker asked him his email. The man replied,
“I don’t have an email”.

The broker answered curiously, “You don’t have an email, and yet have succeeded to build an empire. Can you imagine what you could have been if you had
an email ?”
The man thought for a while and replied,
“Yes, I would have be an office boy at Microsoft!”

Moral of the story:
M1 - Internet is not the solution to your life.
M2 - If you don’t have internet, and work hard, you can be a millionaire.
Have a great day!

Pls Note: - Do not forward this email to me back, I’m closing all my email addresses & going to sell tomatoes!!!Smiling after reading is not mandatory !
