Practice Technique Number 24 for Relaxation: Using Slower and Slower Motions.    

April 5, 2017

Take any motion of any part of the body, regardless of the measurement of the distance it travels in space, close the eyes, perform the movement over one second, then over two seconds, four, eighth, sixteen seconds, and continue this doubling process out indefinitely, -but- only as long as within or during these durations you never loose the internal sensation that motion is continuing to occur.

This is an excellent way to induce relaxation in the muscles, and to explore (in depth) the ambit of the motion.  If, every once in a while, there is a twitching motion in the part that is moving, interpret it not so much as a jerkiness but as a muscle or muscles relaxing.
