Wear A Calming Colour
It's true. Certain colours help you to relax, but first you need to consider your personality. Anything with water helps our mind to connect within ourself and calms us down. And if you are more of a laid-back person, opt for earthly tones and pastels. Surround yourself with these hues, by decorating your rooms or offices. This helps you to calm down easily and relax well.

Build Relaxation Into Your Morning Routine
Jumping out of the bed as soon as your alarm rings is one nearly impossible task. Have a soothing morning alarm tone to start your day with. A loud ringtone might scare you in the day's start, which can set you up for stress. Start each day with 10 to 15 minutes of relaxation by simple exercises of breathing in and breathing out.

Hang With Your BFF
You instinctively call him/her when you're feeling down, and there's a scientific reason for it. Nothing can beat the happiness and stress relief you get when you talk to your bestie. Being around your bestie creates a buffer from the stress hormone cortisol. So, make sure you spend a good time with your bestie.
