Deep Breathing (1/6)

If you are looking to relax the muscles of the lower back, deep breathing is a surprisingly effective, and often overlooked method. Simply find your most comfortable position to lay in and begin to breathe, slowly and deeply. Try pretending to breathe in and around your lower back area. Slowly and gently feel your ribs go in and out. Feel your stomach go up and down. These subtle, gentle motions aid the muscles around your spine to relax.
