In brief: Relax therapy
Exercise is the most natural way to improve mood and decrease tension.
30 min of nonstop cardiovascular movement is what the american heart assoc defines as exercise. For ex. Brisk walk, jog, run, swim. The vigor of activity should be enough to make you feel like you are working hard. Deep breathing may also help. 3 deep breaths in a row, each held for 5 seconds, and released.
