Slowly tense the muscles in this area squeezing as tightly as you can, hold for 10 seconds and then relax the muscles. Repeat these steps for your left foot and then for other areas of your body: buttocks, abs, arms, back and neck.
2. Yoga. If you haven’t tried it by now, you must do it as soon as you can. Yoga will help you manage anger and anxiety, will bring your mind in a peaceful place and will relax your entire body. Savasana is one of the easiest yoga positions that will relax your entire body. Lie down on your back comfortably, with legs slightly apart, keep your hands by your sides with the palms facing upwards, close your eyes and breathe slowly and deeply from your diaphragm. Stay in this positions for at least 5-10 minutes.
3. Deep Breathing. Try to practice deep breathing everytime you find yourself in a stressful situation. It’s the best solution because it provides immediate stress relief and it lowers your blood pressure in just a few minutes. All you have to do is to sit up straight, close your eyes and slowly inhale through your nose, feeling how the air is starting to fill your lungs. Count to 5 and then reverse the process as you exhale slowly through your mouth. Repeat it for 3 minutes.
