No matter what the source of your stress is, these simple techniques are easy to practice and can give you the relaxation you need. Take a few minutes each day and find the technique that works for you.


Get some fresh air

21st century lives aren’t necessarily what the human body was designed for. We spend our days working inside, sat in front of a screen, and there are days where we rarely venture outside.

Seeing the sun and getting fresh air is a great stress reliever though, and it doesn’t take much to get out on a quick walk. It’s easy to get consumed with what you’re doing and forget about the world outside, but remember there’s a beautiful world out there, and you can go and experience it.


Exercise


Gentle exercise stimulates endorphins which are your body’s natural stress fighters. It doesn’t have to be vigorous exercise; just something that gets you moving and your heart beating.
