Relaxation

 

How could relaxation help me?

 

Exploring relaxation can help you look after yourself when you’re feeling stressed or worried. Have a look at these tips and ideas to see how relaxation can fit into your daily life. Don’t worry if some ideas don’t work for you – just enjoy the ones that do:

 

  • Read a book or a magazine, even if it’s only for a few minutes.
  • Run yourself a bath, watch a film, play with a pet or try out a new recipe.
  • Focus on your breathing Learning to breathe more deeply can help you feel a lot calmer.
  • Breathe in through your nose and out through your mouth. Try to keep your shoulders down and relaxed, and place your hand on your stomach – it should rise as you breathe in and fall as you breathe out.
  • Count as you breathe. Start by counting 'one, two, three, four' as you breathe in and 'one, two, three, four' as you breathe out. 

 

Get creative

  • Getting in touch with your artistic side can help you feel more calm and relaxed.

  • Try painting, drawing, making crafts, playing a musical instrument, dancing, baking or sewing.
  • Try not to worry too much about the finished product – just focus on enjoying yourself.

 

 

Listen to music

Music can relax you, connect you to your emotions and distract you from worrying thoughts.

  • Listen to your favourite songs. Turn up the volume and dance or sing along, or put your headphones on and close your eyes.
  • Really listen to the music. Can you pick out different instruments? Can you hear a drum beat or a certain rhythm? Focus on the music, and let other thoughts fade away.
