Top Unusual Ways to Relax in Less Than a Minute!
Sometimes relaxing is the last thing on your mind when you have lots and lots of work for you to complete. If you have walked the conventional path and have already tried the meditation route and find it hard to stick to your routine, here are some ways that could add the fun back to your relaxation routine. Well, if you have heard about it, and think that trying it out is a waste of time, think again! These are as effective as they are simple.
Live a Little and Laugh a Lot
There are loads of benefits of laughing and literally no downsides. When you laugh, you can calm your body. Research shows that laughter can positively reduce your stress hormones and improve your health-improving happy hormones.
It can also help elevate the mood. Unfortunately, we tend to laugh a lot less when we start aging. Kids laugh a lot at least 400 times a day, but the average adult can only laugh 15 times a day. However, you can increase your laughter numbers to a great extent. Well, how can you do that? Call your funny friend who makes you laugh all the time. Or look up some memes on Instagram that are dial-a-laugh.
Roll on a Tennis Ball
This one is as weird as it gets. But this is one of the most effective hacks to get the belly laughs out of you. These are one of the techniques that runners use in yoga classes.
Tennis balls are in fact one of the best self-massage tools. Place it on one of your shoulder blades and gently roll around. Keep the ball under your butt and your calves work, too, and well you don’t even have to try any expensive massage treatment at a salon.
Go the Old-Fashioned Way and Write a Postcard
Restaurants may often hand out postcards with your cheque, so don’t throw them away and hoard them.
The next time you are going somewhere you can write out some words either to a family member or friend, especially the ones you haven’t talked in a while. Sometimes there is great solace in writing out snail mails instead of writing boring cryptic emails. There is no greater joy in writing your heart out in a piece of paper.
Read a Book, Better Still Exchange One With a Friend
When was the last time you read a book? Or exchanged one with your friend? Reading instantly rejuvenates you and snaps you out of the wired and tired feeling you have. Curling up with a book at the favorite corner of your house with a steaming cuppa is pure bliss.
It is greater bliss when you discuss the book with your friend. There is no greater bonding than discussing the nitty-gritty of the book, what you liked about it, and what you did not. And have you ever tried re-reading a book for the nth time? Discovering the places which you really like, the pieces that made you chuckle, and the ones not so much. It is like eating your favorite food and rediscovering why you liked it in the first place.
Get That Face Roller
How about trying out the latest hack on the internet that makes your skin glow. Yes, the jade roller can not only lend an enviable glow to your face but also instantly cool and calm your face.
Imagine using a jade roller to not only relax your face but also bring out the rare glow and massage your lymphatic system. We don’t know how great is it for your skin but the repetitive act can bring about a calming effect. No wonder more and more people are falling for the obvious charms of a jade roller. The best part it is really cheap and you can use it again and again.
Don’t Delay Appointments, Just Go for it!
Sometimes postponing something can actually impact you, since you constantly have it at the back of your mind. So, even if it is rescheduling an appointment do it, as you can go forward with the rest of your week, a month without having to worry about it. Get rid of the low-grade stress balls that plague us for months or years, so it is better to get it off your back and relax in the bargain!
Try these hacks and you’ll soon start laughing and relaxing in no time!
