Mindfulness Breaks- Take a few minutes 3-4 times a day to destress. First close your eyes and focus on your breathing. Start to relax your shoulders, let the rest of the body follow. Take a few deep breathes in and exhale all the tension.
Give Love- Experts say physical contact helps encourage you to see new solutions to problems that can appear difficult and studies show petting an animal can decrease stress and lower blood pressure. Give a few hugs a day to reduce stress levels.
DANCE- For 2-3 minutes put on your favorite upbeat song and DANCE like no one is watching! Let out all the stress and tension. Listen to the music and focus on how it makes you feel.
Exercise- Releasing your endorphins feels energizing as you move. Take 30 minutes to 1 hour, 3-4 times a week to help release your endorphins. If you are just starting out take 10-15 minutes every other day and see how you feel afterwards. Then make it your goal to reach 30 minutes to 1 hour, 3-4 times a week.
