INSTANT RELAXATION AND STRESS RELIEF 10 TIPS
1. DRINK A GLASS OF WATER
Water supports your organism and helps to drop your cortisol levels.
Drinking water can help you to get rid of stress hormones quicker and helps to relax.
2. BODY POSTURE
Take your attention to your body posture.
Make sure that your back is straight and your posture is stable.
Pay also attention to your jaw.
When we are stressed we tend to have tension around our jaw.
Make sure to relax your jaw.
Sidenote: Many people also grind their teeth while they’re sleeping.
This is also a sign of too much unsolved, emotional stress.
3. DEEP BREATHING
Close your eyes and take a few deep breaths for about one minute.
Deep breathing helps you to relieve tension in your body.
Leave your eyes closed and observe your breath for 5 minutes.
The best way you can clear your head, become more aware of your thoughts, and mindful of your actions is through meditation.
If you are considering giving meditation a try I’d recommend starting with the easy yet effective 5-week Meditation For Beginners course lead by the experienced meditation teacher Giovanni Dienstmann.

4. RELAX YOUR SHOULDER
With your eyes closed take your attention to your shoulders.
When we are stressed we tend to pull our shoulders together, which leads to pain in the shoulders and around the neck area.
Be aware and mindful of your body posture.
Consciously leave your shoulders relaxed hanging down while you breathe calmly.
Soak up the rays of sunshine.
Sunlight helps our organism to produce Vitamin D, which is not only essential for various functions within our body but also helps us raise our mood.
6. GO FOR A WALK
Movement in combination with relaxed surroundings helps you to relax your mind as well.
7. DRINK HERBAL TEA
Make yourself a herbal tea and drink it calmly and slowly.
Take at least 10 minutes just for yourself and for the tea.
Leave all your electronic devices out of sight and just focus on yourself drinking your tea.
Leave also your thoughts just passing by and try not to give any attention to them.
My favorite tea for relaxation is Pukka Love.
8. TAKE A BUBBLE BATH
In case you have a bathtub, make use of it, and take a bath.
9. USE ESSENTIAL OILS
Take an aroma lamp and use essential oils to relax your mind.
The scent of Lavender, Rose, Bergamot, Lemongrass, Melissa, Geranium, and Ylang Ylang can help you to relax.
10. BE CREATIVE
Take out your acrylic paints, your watercolors, crayons, or pastel chalks and create.
Do not focus on the end result, there is no outcome expected.
Just draw or paint whatever comes to your mind.
