Top 10 Rising Ways to Relax

Here’s a clever ways to Relax. Relaxing is vital for ensuring-restoring the passion and joy in your life. Allowing stress to affect you can lead to depression, illness, weight gain and a general sense of malcontent.

1. Exercise every day.
This is the best-known, scientifically-proven way to significantly reduce stress. You’ll be amazed at how much easier it is to overcome stress if you exercise regularly. Here are some ideas to try:

Aim for at least thirty minutes per day of moderate activity.

Walk in the park, in the woods, or on a treadmill.

Take the stairs instead of the elevator.

Park a little further away from the entrance of a store.

Ride a bike.

Go swimming. Try your local pool, a nearby lake or a friend or relative’s home.

Stretch. Lower your shoulders to help relax. Be more consciously aware of the tension that is quick to accumulate in your shoulders and neck region.

2. Consider self-hypnosis.
Focus on something, take a few deep breaths and let yourself become hypnotized. If you have trouble with self-hypnosis, go to a licensed hypnotherapist. Do not allow an amateur to try to hypnotize you, and beware of subliminal messages

3. Call, Don’t Text
A study from the University of Wisconsin-Madison found that hearing someone’s voice over the phone has the ability to lower the listener’s stress levels and boost the cuddle hormone oxytocin in your bod. Getting a text doesn’t have the same effect.

4. Snack on Citrus
Noshing on an orange or grapefruit-even adding a little lemon in your iced tea-can improve your mood says psychologist Dale Atkins, PhD, author of Sanity Savers.

5. Smile and Relax (Seriously)
According to research from the University of Kansas, grinning helps you relax when you’re stressed out. After putting people through stressful tasks, researchers discovered that the smilers had lower heart rates and reported feeling less frazzled than those who didn’t smile.

6. Ditch the Trash-Talk
Experts say that when you’re negative, it’s contagious to the people around you (and then you’re surrounded by negativity, which doesn’t exactly help your stress level). If you find yourself wanting to vent about someone, write it in your diary instead.

7. Use a Lamp
Research shows that harsh overhead lighting can ramp up your stress and make you feel irritable. Soft lighting, on the other hand, can soothe you.

8. Grab Coffee with Friends
A study found that getting your caffeine fix in a group lowered stress levels. That said, sipping coffee alone made people feel more stressed, so definitely grab a buddy before you go.

9. Do a (Short) Workout
Research found that short, high-intensity workouts have a great effect on stress than slow-paced exercise does. So to max out your chill time, hit the treadmill on high for 20 minutes in lieu of an hour of yoga.

10. Make Out
Psychologists found that even just a little bit of physical contact is enough to lower your blood pressure and make you feel calmer.
