> Exercise provides so many benefits and builds up endorphins ‘the happy hormone’.

> Meditation or Self Hypnosis is a relaxing method to soothe and rejuvenate the body, mind and spirit. Research the many different ways to accomplish this.
> Muscle Relaxation… Research and try these techniques that allow you to relax all of the muscles in your body, group by group, allowing you to feel physically and emotionally relaxed. A great way to fall asleep fast!
> Fun & Laughter releases tension and brings positive physiological changes.
> Intimacy can bring a rush of endorphins through social connection, touch, breathing, etc and lead to other enjoyable chemical releases!
> Listen to or Play Music.. put on your favourite tunes to help alter your physiological state of mind. Formal music therapy is also available to help with a variety of stress-related issues.
