Doing a meditative body scan (practice 1) and practicing awareness of your breathing (practice 2) are ways of being with your body and with yourself in the present moment. They are excellent ways to relieve tension and stress. I invite you to bring awareness to your breath or every part of your body, to know it, learn from it, and manage whatever arises. Also, for those experiencing physical pain (or emotional pain that causes tension in your body), practice 3, a guided meditation on pain is helpful.
