Relaxation (Or Lack Thereof)

One of the things I've gotten back into this past year is yoga. It's a surprisingly good workout, but it also helps me -- a classic Type A personality -- de-stress and feel more relaxed.

Or so I thought.

The other day we're in the cool-down period at the end of a yoga session, and after it's over the instructor tells me I need to relax better. You're supposed to close your eyes and lie completely still for 3-4 minutes. Apparently the entire time I was drumming my fingers or tapping my feet or doing something other than being motionless.

Oddly enough, I was unaware I was doing any of this. I actually felt pretty damn calm.

Is it possible to suck at relaxing? I guess I've found a way.
