How to relax
First, to actually relax you must find what it is you like to do that helps you relax most. This could be anything I said above, exercising, meditation, TV, etc. However, things like smoking cigarettes, food bingeing and other activities harmful to the body should not be used to reduce stress.
After you find what it is you do to relax find time every day to do it. Whether it be for 10 minutes or for an hour a day, you must find time to implement your activity into the day or else it won’t help you reduce stress and you won’t see the health benefits. After you find a little time out of every day to do it, make it a commitment to do it every day until it becomes a habit.
