Everyone of us needs to deal with stress & everybody has their own methods to release the tension. Today I want to share with you my ideas to relax mind & body.
Remember, that sometimes tension from our body (e.g. resulting from hard workout) can affect our mind (and vice versa – stressful thoughts can tighten muscles), so it’s important to know methods that help loosen up both – mind & body, at the same time.
You can do any type of meditation or calming routines (e.g. Yoga, Pilates etc.) that fits you. It’s good to clear thoughts and helping relax muscles. You can try listening to relaxing music or nature sounds while doing it – it’s easier to focus and calm down.

Stretching will relax your body and oxygenate muscles. It’ll also give a blessed feeling to your head. Just breath deeply while exercising and let your body get loose.
The head will follow, I promise!
To do self-massage you can use a tennis / lacrosse ball or foam roller. It’s an amazing way to release tension from muscles and get rid of soreness.
Dance, sing or just listen to good music. Rhythmic beats will increase heartbeat, making us more energetic and giving us better mood. Just try to shake your booty to some crazy sound!
