Life here gets stressful from time to time, and I need ways to help relieve stress. I am very busy most days, and sometimes it’s hard to stay calm and relax because of it all. However, to keep my sanity, here are 5 quick ways to help relieve stress and relax!

Life here gets stressful from time to time, which causes stress. If you need to unwind, here are 5 quick ways to help relieve stress and relax!

1. Have a cup of tea

Seriously, I love me a good cup of tea. It takes 5 minutes to brew. You can let it steep for 10 minutes while you do other things, and then you can sit and take a 15 minute break. The aroma of the tea leaves and the warmness of the liquid help me calm down when I am all worked up. Right now, I have been grooving on Tulsi Tea, which is known as a stress reliever.

2. Make a list

If you are stressed because you have a lot to do, make a list. It’s easier to stay focused if you have your tasks organized. It also makes it easier to get through them too.

3. Walk

Whether it is walking at lunch time or early in the evening, walking can help you clear your head. It’s also a great form of exercise!

4. Stretch

I am not a big yoga fan. I have tried, but it is not my thing. If you like yoga, you can try some simple yoga poses throughout the day. For me, I like belly dance. I find myself making angel wings or snake arms. I also do other movements. The key is to move in a way that makes you feel good.

5. Breathe

Whether you take in a few deep breaths or have enough time to do a bit of meditation with it, taking a moment to breathe can help you focus and can relieve tension.

Final Thoughts

Managing stress is very important for your health and well-being. That saying “You can’t fill from an empty cup” is so true. When we do not manage stress and our mental well-being, it has serious consequences on our physical well-being as well.

I hope you found these 5 quick ways to help relieve stress and relax. How do you manage your stress and relax?

    Exercise is one of the most important things you can do. It might seem contradictory, but putting physical stress on your body through exercise can relieve mental stress. The benefits are strongest when you exercise regularly.
