From My Own Experience
1. Pump some peaceful tunes
The right music can melt away stress in a matter of seconds. Keep a few of the tunes that you know make you feel good on your phone so you can pop in your headphones and relax at a moment’s notice. For example Chinese bamboo music is a big example for this.
2. Chew Gum
Chew gums, I don’t know whether it is practical for all but it is proved that many of the people get relaxed when they chew gums.
3. Breath In- Breath Out
Deep breathing soothes the body and mind – especially lengthening the exhalation which is known for its relaxation effects. Try this easy exercise to instantly chill out: breathe in to the count of five, hold in for five, and then slowly exhale while counting to five again. Repeat five times, and enjoy the instant calm! As you get more comfortable with the exercise, you can increase the number of breaths, or slow your breath even more by counting to six, seven, and so on.
4. Take a time out
The best way that everybody prefers. I usually go out or for a drive, if you are passionate in driving, it will make you more relaxed. The night breeze will make you feel better than ever.
5. Get quiet every once in a while
Switch off the TV, your cell phone, the computer; too much of gadget usage can cause stress. Appreciating silence can help you to feel more relaxed and peaceful.
6. Take a walk
A 20 minutes walk can boost your energy level. When I walk in the evening time to have my dinner (rarely) that itself gives some kind of freshness. For sure you will be warmed up and you will be relaxed.
7. Get organized
A well organized room, space can make you feel comfortable. When the place is messy you may feel exhausted and dry. Always make proper arrangements to keep it clean and simple and you will the change.
8. Know when to let go of someone or something
You may feel it odd!. but its truth that some people can also make you exhausted, or things can make you mad. LEAVE IT and LET IT GO. You should know when it should happen.
9. Spend time with nature
The best way, we don’t need any explanation about the healing power the mother nature.
10. Learn to say no
Sometimes you just can’t be all things to all people. Learn to put healthy boundaries in place. If you are constantly running around trying to help other people, learn when to stop. Sometimes your own needs have to come first. You don’t have to become selfish, just know when to draw the line.
11. Enjoy the city bus & auto
It really fun.!! When you are really don’t know what to do for spending time, go for a city bus or auto ride. Whenever I get bored, I used to prefer this because the night traffic, the breeze, people and everything feel like interesting. Prefer this only after 6:00 PM..
12. Watch a sunrise or a sunset
There is something special about the stillness of dawn and something profoundly beautiful about the colors of a sunset. Soothe and nurture your soul by enjoying these simple, natural pleasures. This image was taken from Marine Drive Cochin with my phone, the best place where i used to go.
13. Simplify your life
Simplify your life by taking things easily and be flexible and receptive.
14. Enjoy the small, simple things in life
Ultimately, enjoy each and every seconds and small things in your life. Stop crying for things that you missed but be happy for what you have right now. Have fun always.
