How to Relax and Chill Out

Whether you are stressed out by school, work or just everyday life, if can be a really hard thing to get out of. It is so important to take the time to relax and chill out from whatever it is thats making you stressed, so that you feel more calm and level headed. Here are some of my tips on how to relax.

Get done what you need to 
One of the main factors that can make you feel stressed, is if you have work to do that is unfinished. In some situations it is best to get that done first and then relax later. But, if you are overly stressed, it is important for you to be relaxed first and then tackle the task later. 

Have a bath
Everyone has different opinions about baths and showers, but to me there is nothing more relaxing than a bath. You can add bath bombs and bubble bath, and spending a good 20-30 minutes in there will calm you down completely.

Hot drink
Hot drinks are also proven to de-stress you. I wouldn't pick something like coffee, especially if it is in the evening, because you will be up all night. Drinking something like green tea or hot chocolate, will do a great job of making you feel calm and relaxed.

Take your mind off of the stress
Sometimes stress can be hard to escape from if it is always in your head and on your mind. One of the best ways to relax is to take your mind off of it. You can do this by watching TV or a film. I always find that anything comedy will help me to relax. Something like Friends, will always help me out.

Exercise is one of the best things you can do when you are stressed. You will release endorphins, especially through cardio, which will naturally put you in a better mood. Exercise is also likely to take your mind off of stress too. It doesn't necessarily need to be a long work out. Something short and intense would be very beneficial.

I know it can be hard when you are stressed, but getting the right amount of sleep will help you out. I like to get 8-9 hours sleep per night, to keep myself feeling awake and clear-minded. I don't really like napping because I always wake up confused and disorientated, but for some people it is really helpful.

Do you have any other tips for relaxing?
