I always had a hard time relaxing. I learned meditation. In that I learned how to relax my muscles.
Start at the top of your head (hair and scalp) and relax all of your muscles from head to toe. It takes some concentrating and a lot of focus, but by doing this you relax mentally too. Keep practicing. You will be so happy once you master this. I use this to sleep. IF you are laying down, you can fall asleep. I guess sitting with your legs crossed is best especially in the beginning. I hope that this helps you.
I hope you are having a good day. Snow here...
