Five simple relaxation techniques to help control stress throughout the day:

Deep breathing: breathe in deeply through your nose as much as possible and hold for a few seconds and then exhale slowly through your mouth four to five breaths at a time.

Active relaxation: tense, hold and then relax various muscle groups in your body for a few seconds starting with your feet and progressively moving to your head.

Stretching exercises: simply stretch those muscles that feel tense, such as neck and shoulder muscles, systematically throughout the day.

Visualization: picture the stressful situation in your mind and then visually rehearse a pleasant alternate image and hold this image for a few minutes.

Passive relaxation: find a quiet location and focus on a neutral word or object or even on your breathing for around ten minutes clearing your mind.
