How to Relieve Stress and Recharge Your Body and Mind

1.

Exercise releases endorphins, which can help boost your mood. Try joining a team, or make a schedule of walking or biking daily.

2.

Avoid highly caffeinated drinks such as coffee, soda or energy drinks. Try hot tea such as chamomile tea which can be soothing. Drinking lots of water by keeping hydrated also helps. Lack of water can cause sleepiness and headaches.

3.

Changing your diet can also make you feel better. Avoid excessive sugar like candy or sugary drinks. Instead, try fruits rich in vitamin C like oranges or blueberries which will give you energy.

4.

If your feeling extra anxious, take a breather. Try stretches and deep breathing exercises. This can reduce headaches.

5.

Sleep is very important. Always try to get at around eight or nine hours of sleep. If you didn't get that much sleep, try to take a small 20 minute nap, no longer.
