Watching a long tennis rally at Wimbledon, I suddenly became aware that I was tensing along with every shot. Not only was I tightening my toes for every hit, I was also pressing my tongue against the roof of my mouth and clasping my hands together. It was pretty exhausting just watching!
So here are some Alexander Technique top tips for watching Wimbledon without tension:
- Relax your toes;
- Allow your tongue to rest at the bottom of your mouth – think of it widening;
- Relax your hands – they’re not needing to hold a racket!
- Remember to breathe.
It might help you last 5 sets!
