  • Breathing Therapy – just 15 minutes of deep breathing can restore your energy level to carry you through the day.
  • Progressive Muscle Relaxation – tensing and releasing muscles throughout your body. This is highly recommended for fibromyalgia patients.
  • Guided Imagery through Visualization. Have a favorite vacation spot? Picture yourself there, sitting on the beach, listening to the waves hitting the shore as you soak up the warm sunshine. Listen to your breathing.
  • Curl up with a good book to take you away from the stress around you. Whether it’s an inspirational book, a good mystery or romance novel, it can serve as a necessary escape from everyday problems that plague you.
  • Water Therapy. Soak in a hot tub. Use a little Epsom Salts to relieve muscle pain. Light a few scented candles. Create a home spa atmosphere as your personal getaway.
  • Help a needy person – doing any kind of volunteer work helps you forget about your own problems, making you more appreciative of your own circumstances.
  • Sing. Break out in song, sing in the shower, with the radio while you’re driving to work, or have a family sing-a-long. You’ll feel great.
  • Holidays get you stressed out? Sit back and relax with a soothing cup of herbal tea.
