Yeah, we all know that feeling…when your stress levels hit a new all time high. Well read on and discover five things you can do to shut out the world.

Stress is universal and a prevalent component in the fast paced world of today which greatly impacts an individual well being and health. Relax. Everyone under stress deserves it; it’s good for you and takes less time than you think. Each of these below mentioned stress relieving tips can get you from ‘Oh My God’ to ‘Oh my’ in less than fifteen minutes.

  1. Take a Long Shower 

Nothing is better than taking a long nice hot shower to get a break from all your thoughts. Many people do some of their most serious thinking and planning in the shower, but that does not mean it cannot be a means of relaxing.

Bonus Tip: Make a bubble bath, it will help you take your mind away from work related stress for a while.

  1. Listen to Some Music

Music has always shown a very strong positive effect on the mental state and mood of an individual. Calm yourself down by listening to some of your favorite soothing songs. Try listening to softer music for best effects.

Bonus Tip: keep playing slow music in the background while working to reduce your stress level.

  1. Change your Environment

Changing your environment will help you get a break from your thoughts and stressors, and also give you a chance to recover from your anxiety. Breathe in the fresh air by taking a stroll in a peaceful park and let your stress get sucked away with the cool fresh breeze. Sunlight is a great way to cure depression, which is related to anxiety and stress because it’s hard to be stressed when you will be witnessing the beauty of Mother Nature, while putting your mind and body to work in the open environment.

  1. Laugh it Out!

As they say, laughter is the best medicine. Laughing may seem a bit difficult when you are stressed, but incorporating laughter it into your daily life will bring a marked difference in you. Turn on your favorite funny YouTube video or hang out with a friend that makes you laugh. Laughing and smiling relives stress faster as compared to any other method because the brain releases a hormone which helps in reducing stress and make you feel better in no time.

  1. Remedial Massage

The ultimate method of relieving stress is getting a nice long massage at a luxurious spa. Massage therapy has shown great results in reducing stress significantly on physiological as well as on physical levels.
