There are many ways in which you can relax, if I was to write a list of all the possible ways I would never finish it! Relaxation can help to reduce stress and anxiety and improve your mental and physical wellbeing, helping you to cope with the challenges of everyday life. Relaxation is such a broad term, for instance, sitting at home listening music,  watching television or playing video games could be relaxing for you.

Relax Breathing

Take a 5-minute break and focus on your breathing. Sit up straight, eyes closed, with a hand on your belly. Slowly inhale through your nose, keep the pace slow and regular. Slowly tense then relax all the muscles in your body, starting at your toes and working up to your head. Afterwards just take some time to be still and focus on how your body feels.

Stretching Exercises

Take a 5-minute break and focus on stretching exercises. Research has indicated that stretching  improves relaxation. It can improve your range of motion, increase circulation, and calm your mind—which may help fend off injuries and illness, as well as bring on a better night’s sleep.
