tense muscles - quotes and descriptions to inspire creative writing
Tense muscles were the mirror of my anxiety, each one fed into the other, and the massages were the best way I found to interrupt that negative cycle, to move into a positive spin instead.
Tense muscles were part of my life. I did so much physical work and that took a toll on my body. I looked great, but I was as a car in need of a service. That maintenance is important, it is. We all know what happens to engines that don't get cared for right and the body is the same.
Workouts were how I made sure my health worked out, my self esteem too, but there were times that my muscles felt tense, as if they needed a nice long stretch to relax. I guess I'm not the most flexible of people. That's a thing I need to work on. Massages are great though and I use my tense muscles as a great reason to go pamper myself... I can say that I really need it... which is more a conversation with myself than others. I'm the kind of person who puts others first at their own expense, which is great, but there are times that self care is necessary if you're going to do a great job of caring for others.
Neala stretched. She was stiff from the long day in the car. Standing on tiptoe, shoulders straining back, she felt the luxury of her tensing muscles.
