Tip 27: Stress Relief

17 Feb 2016 6:35 PM | Heather Kaye (Administrator)

When you can feel the stress building up, practice some quick stress-relieving activities. Try one of these ideas the next time you feel tense:

  1. While standing, legs slightly apart, swing your arms and body.
  2. While laying down, stretch your arms as far above your head as you can and your feet as far away from your body as you can. Then relax. Repeat 5 times.
  3. High step in place, as if you are in a marching band.
  4. While sitting or standing, tense and release muscles (especially neck/shoulder, jaw, tummy, forehead, hands)
  5. Find a comfortable position, close your eyes, and take several, slow, deep breaths. Inhale to a count of four, pause, then exhale to a count of four.
