(2) Play soft Meditative Music – This relaxing music, or in some cases nature type, spa type, yoga type music can give a calming peaceful effect.
If you listen to heart pounding, activating music such as heavy metal, rock, upbeat music – it actually increases your perception of stress. So save this type of music for when there is no stress, or for when you want to party.
Even sitting there in silence or listening to the News can increase your perception of stress. If you don’t have any calming music at hand – There are plenty of online radio stations for meditation, and you tube channels that offer this.
(3) Do Gentle Yoga – (Also known as Restorative yoga) This doesn’t mean you have to go out to a fast, high level, long drawn out yoga class. There are plenty online that are a short duration so it will fit into your time schedule, with slow and easy movements for your yoga level.

(4) Diaphragm/Belly Breathing – This one you can do any where, at work, when out and about or while watching television.
Put your hand on your belly.
Take a deep breath in. As you do this – let your belly expand.
Then release exhale – let your breath out.
The bigger your belly gets when you breath in, the more oxygen you are getting. When you exhale, your body is not only going to become more relaxed, toxins are also released through this process.
Repeat the deep breathing regularly. The more you do it, the better the results.
