1- Breathe in and out deeply three times
Sounds easy enough and makes sense right? But we often forget how powerful this is. Inhale deeply, close your eyes and exhale deeply and repeat 3 times.
2-Listen to your favourite song
I have a few on my phone playlist that I love to listen to and certainly does the job when I am feeling a little stressed.
3-Get onto social media
A distraction will always help keep your mind at ease so you don’t have to think about what is giving you anxiety. It is amazing how pictures can be a quick fix mood changer.
4-Call a friend/lover who makes you smile.
They are bound to say something that will make you laugh and better still will always make you feel better.
5-Sip on your favourite tea
I sit in a quiet room and sip on green tea which always calms me and helps me forget my stressful moments. Holland and Barrett have an array of delicious teas to choose from, anything from liquorice tea to calming, lemon and ginger to green teas.
