5 Ways to Relax at Home or Work

Most of the time we’re not really drained from work, but the travel we have to go through every day from going to and from work can be exhausting.

When we’re feeling frazzled, going to feel the cold breeze in Tagaytay or a weekend at a beach might be just the thing to calm our nerves.

But there isn’t always time for leisure things. Good thing is that there are ways to relax and relieve stress in just 5 minutes.

Whether you’re at work or you’re at home check at these 5 ways to create calm during tough times!

1. Nosh on Chocolate. Dark chocolate regulates the level of the stress hormone and cortisol and stabilizes metabolism. Just a piece of chocolate can calm the nerves.

2. Meditate. Find a quiet place you find comfortable, concentrate on your breath, and feel those anxieties start to disappear. A silent meditation a day can relieve stress and depression.

3. Close your eyes. James Taylor said it: An easy way to regain calm and focus is by closing your eyes. Take a quick rest from a busy office or a muddled household by just lowering your eyelids.

4. Drip cold water on your wrists. Cooling the areas of your body such as wrists and behind your earlobes help calm the whole body, because there are major arteries right under the skin.

5.Foot Spa. Nothing beats a relaxing foot massage by having a foot spa. If you don’t have time to go to a spa, you can just have your own foot spa.

Life can be tough, but it’s always important to know simple ways for you to  calm your nerves, no matter how stressful your days can be.
