It is easy to know whether you are relaxed at any given moment. It is easier to relax.
It takes very little mental and physical effort to know whether you are relaxed at this moment. A deep breath, a stand-up and stretch or even closing your eyes for a few moments can relax you.
This brings me to another realisation:
Relaxation is always almost a physical activity. It is easier to change your physiology to relax than talking yourself into relax.
