Relaxation Tips

We all get stressed out from time to time and we need to relax. Here are a few tips on how to relax.

  1. Sit down, close your eyes and slowly take 10 deep breaths. Slowly inhale through your nose feeling your abdomen, then slowly exhale through your mouth.

  2. Take a warm bath with dim lights or candles and think about happy things in your life.

  3. Go for a walk around your neighborhood, in the park, on the beach or at the mall. Light exercise like walking is very good for relaxing your body and mind.

  4. Watch a comedy special or a comedy show.  It lowers cortisol, your body’s stress hormone, and boosts brain chemicals called endorphins, which help your mood.

  5. Listen to some soothing music. Research shows that listening to soothing music can lower blood pressure, heart rate, and anxiety.
