    It is very important that nurture ourselves to relieve stress. Regularly make time for fun and relaxation; you’ll be in a better place to handle life’s stressors when they inevitably come. Nurturing yourself is a necessity, not a luxury.

    Set aside relaxation time

    Include rest and relaxation in your daily schedule. Don’t allow other obligations to encroach. This is your time to take a break from all responsibilities and recharge your batteries.

    Connect with others

    Spend time with positive people who enhance your life. A strong support system will buffer you from the negative effects of stress.

    Do something you enjoy every day

    Make time for leisure activities that bring you joy, whether it be stargazing, playing the piano, or working on your bike.

    Keep your sense of humor

    This includes the ability to laugh at yourself. The act of laughing helps your body fight stress in a number of ways.

    Listen To Music during Your Regular Activities

    Music has proven health and stress relief benefits, and can be easily used in daily life to relieve stress. Busy people can turn on music during their morning routine, commute to and from work, during dinner, or at other times to relieve stress as they go about their daily activities. It takes virtually no extra time, and provides real benefits.

    Practice Breathing Exercises

    Breathing exercises are a great way to relax anytime and anywhere. One very effective exercise is to ‘inhale peace' and ‘exhale your stress'.
