I always needed 30-90 minutes to finally relax. Seemed I was always tense… even in tense-positions when sitting or lying on a couch. What finally helped me was BioFeedback or Neurofeedback treatments by a psychologist. It’s EXPENSIVE and takes months to work (I spend $6K over 4 months), but… the result was MIRACULOUS! When super-tense or overwhelmed, I can now sit down, close my eyes and in maybe 1-2 minutes… I’m relaxed. It’s crazy because I’ve never had that before! Medication can help as well, but mine had ceased working after several years and I’d started drinking heavily to force my mind to stop (not good). I hope that’s helpful for you or anyone else. 🙂
