    Disrupt harmful behavior patterns. Most people create tension by repeatedly reliving the same stressful situations over and over whether it’s working at a desk, driving, talking to someone, making phone calls or whatever.

For example, if you are always hunched over in a chair… look into buying a better chair for your back, or if your neck is always aching while on the computer, put the monitor at a higher location so you have to look up with good and relaxing posture to view it. You don’t necessarily have to stop doing the stressful activity, but rather change how you are doing it.
