How do I relieve this pain in my shoulders?

I'm having a pretty standard tight pain in my shoulders (most likely due to stress), kind of like my shoulders are stuck in the tensed up shrug position. Can the hivemind recommend some remedies? I found some exercise sites from past posts, but anything would be helpful.

In response to this question about running I found a lot of good motivation for myself to start this up and I did last night for the first time.
