From every day stresses of life, work, home, & school, what are some things you do to relieve stress and relax?
Learn relax technics. Go for a walk. Take time for your hobbies. Pray. Meditate (organize your life).Have sex in a commited relationship. Look for a comedies. For inmediate treatment...Take a deep slow breaths several times, put all your muscles very hard for few seconds then release them imagining they are soft & relaxed. Avoid stresses from caffeine, chocolate, green tea, tobacco, etoh, from driving, or from people.
Stay active. Exercise is a great way to relieve stress. Your body releases endorphins during exercise, which can help you feel calm. If you exercise 30 - 60 minutes a day, your stress levels can improve. When stressed, take 5 slow, deep breaths with your eyes closed, then roll your shoulders forward 5 times, then back 5 times. This will slow your heart rate and release tension in your neck and shoulders.
Meditation. There are many ways in which to reduce stress. Meditation is an important and effective way to do this. A simple meditation technique: find a quiet, comfortable place where you can be undisturbed. Close your eyes and take slow deep breaths inhaling through your nose and exhaling through your mouth, "hyper-focusing" on listening to your breaths. Do this for 5-20 minutes daily.
