Whether its after getting up from sleep in the morning or after coming from work stressed out you can relax anytime. So whenever you are feeling stressed out these are the best methods which can energize you within minutes.

Breathing Relaxation

Breathing relaxation is one of the easiest way which you can perform anywhere you feel like. Even when you are in office sitting in your chair you can easily get relaxed within 5 minutes by following this technique.

  1. Can you sit folding your legs in a quiet place for 5 minutes. If you get such a place in your workplace then you are done. Just fold your legs and sit quietly.
  2. Close your eyes.
  3. Join your hands .
  4. Take normal breathe. No deep breathing techniques.
  5. DO NOT think about anything. Well this is tough not to think anything so better concentrate on your forehead.
  6. With every breathe you take feel that a warm air is passing out from your eyes.
  7. So the whole process should be as you are breathing in concentrating on your forehead and letting off warm air concentrating on your eyes.
  8. Repeat it for 5 minutes.
  9. Then slowly open your eyes. Rub both the hands together for 7-10 seconds and apply it on your face as if you are putting fresh water.
  10. Feel contented and get up from your seat.

Hope you are now relaxed and can get back to work with refreshing mind.

This is a technique which will take you in your dream world.You will require a bit of time to apply this relaxation technique. It can be applied preferably in your home sweet home with no one around or can even enjoy it with your close pals.

Follow the steps for a time period of 30 minutes and you will feel relaxed and above the world.

  1. Arrange your favorite candles in any colors. Somewhat 3-7 candles. Will not suggest more than that.
  2. Have your favorite perfumes. Or mix it up with 2-3 flowery smell perfumes you like.
  3. Have a tub of warm water and a tool or chair where you can sit dipping your legs in the tub.
  4. Lit the candles surrounding the tub, spraying your favorite perfumes in air as well as in the warm water.
  5. Do not put the lights off of your room.
  6. Put your soothing music on. Or any of your playlists having some soft music.
  7. Now just relax for the next thirty minutes.

Music can take you to a different world. You can have relaxing guitar music or piano or any soft instrumental music anytime for relaxing your mind. The Spa music can also make you feel relaxed in no time. You will find lots of these relaxing music available on YouTube. I am just linking to some of them which I like.

Bare-footed on Green Grass or Sea Beach

It is a very natural relaxation process. It has 3 benefits if we walk barefooted on green grass or sea beach sands.

  1. It helps us reducing our heel pains if we have any.
  2. It massages our feet nerve endings which is why actually we feel a lot relaxed.
  3. It refreshes our mind in the very natural way.

So have a long walk barefooted with your partner to have a quality time together or spend quality time with yourself.

Spending Time with Yourself

Source

We all are very busy in our life. We have to meet different people all through out the day whether our daily commuters, clients or somewhere else. In this busy schedule we need to find time to meet ourselves.

  1. Speak to yourself for at-least 10 minutes in a day. Thinking about the things which you like, dislike, love , want to happen, your dreams your goals.
  2. To spend time with yourself you can walk in greenery, or gaze at the stars at night.
  3. It will not only relax your mind but will also energize your soul.

      Found some more good ones that I want to share with you, if you don't mind. https://youtu.be/hGzV5VyDcRw https://youtu.be/DlJVEmWq0vM https://youtu.be/uR-WJpFlt9Y https://youtu.be/uFgJ7ZJHI_A https://youtu.be/z4yQl1wnye4

      A bit of diversity here because not everyone has the same trigger, so you can watch a few and see if one of these work for you. But if not, there are many other ASMR videos on youtube.

      Personally I'm a big fan of watching ASMR videos. Not only do they trigger a warm and tingly feeling in your head, they also make me feel good for hours afterwards. Watching them at bedtime also makes falling asleep much easier. The only problem is finding the right trigger for yourself. Some people react positively to soothing whispering voices, often with accents, other people react to the sound of paintbrushes on a canvas. I'm a big fan of bubble wrap, greaseproof paper or tin foil myself, so this video works perfectly for me for example: https://youtu.be/uEtPs1AtxBI
