Relaxation is a vital part of the day. You need some alone time to take care of yourself. Although you may feel that you don’t have time for it, it is important to make it happen. Taking time for relaxation every day is great for one’s health and mental well being. Here are some five-minute relaxation tips that you can use throughout your day whenever you have the opportunity.

Sit Quietly

In our fast-paced world, there are not many opportunities to sit alone quietly. If stress is getting to you, and you need some retreat, find a place to be alone. Sit and enjoy your own company, and let your mind wander to whatever you find enjoyable and relaxing. In no time, you will feel recharged and ready to face the world.

Play Soothing Music

Keep a collection of soothing music available for times when you are feeling on edge. This might mean classical music, love ballads or any other kind of music you find soothing. Enjoy one or two songs before returning to your previous task.

Cup of Tea

Boil some water and brew yourself a cup of tea. Herbal tea is a great choice as it is generally caffeine free. Some teas, such as chamomile, are even known for their calming effect. Make yourself a cup and take some time to enjoy it, while sipping your worries away.

Short Walk

Exercise is a great mood booster. One doesn’t need to run a marathon to enjoy all the mental benefits that exercise has to offer. Simply put on a pair of comfortable shoes and take a five-minute walk around the block. You will notice the improvement immediately.

Chat with a Friend

Laughter is a great way to release stress. When you are having a tough moment, make your way to the cubicle of your most humorous co-worker. Or pick up the phone and dial your best friend who always has something funny to share. Laughter is truly the best medicine.

Read

Reading can be a great way to relax and get into a stress-free zone fairly quickly. Pick up your favorite book, or perhaps the weekend comics from the newspaper. Skip the news section and read about something that makes you feel good. It’s a great way to get your mind off your usual troubles.

Play

You may not be a kid anymore, but everyone still has a kid somewhere inside of them. Find something you love to do, even if it doesn’t fit into the mold of what you perceive as proper. There are nice games on your phones to get your mind off everything else for a spell. There is something about playing that keeps a person in touch with the part of them that allows them to let go of becoming too serious.

There are many ways a person can relax quickly. Some of these may appeal to you more than others. Take the tips that you think you can utilize and give them a try. Relaxation is only five minutes away, well within your reach.

Have your say...
