Learn How to Relax

Relaxation is a learned response. That means you can teach yourself to be better at relaxing. Not sure if you’re stressed or not? Look for common symptoms such as headaches, fatigue, impatience, or an upset stomach.

To decrease your mental stress, schedule time each day to reflect on what’s worrying you and what tools you already have to make things better, then draw up a plan to resolve the problem. Shelley Carson, Ph.D., a psychologist at Harvard, says “Your body’s stress response is closely tied to your mental appraisal of a situation.” Journaling is effective for both big and small issues.

Once you’ve tackled stress, consider starting a regular routine of breathing, meditation, yoga, massage, or biofeedback to stay calm in future stressful situations. “The longer you engage in these activities, the faster your body is able to relax,” says Carson.
