25 Simple Ways to Relax and De-Stress

Take it from a "Professional Busy Mom".... (((ya need to chill out and relax))) How you might ask? I have been researching simple ways and things to do to relax and de-stress for some time. Life is too short to be stressed out and on the edge all the time. Trust me, you will be a better person and your family will thank you! I have listed a variety of simple things to do to relax, try a few, heck try them all and thank me later. Take care of you!

  1. Change your alarm clock to soft music or soothing sounds. Startling loud sounds puts you on edge first thing in the morning. Who needs that!!!
  2. Change your cup of coffee to a cup of ginseng or green tea. 
  3. Take the dog for a morning walk. Don't have a dog, just go for a walk while listening to inspirational music.

  5. Take time to read a book.
  6. Take a nap.
