12 Inexpensive Ways to Relieve Stress

9. Put aside 10-15 dollars a week and indulge your senses with a monthly body massage. This can go a long way towards releasing stress, worry and anxiety in a short period of time.

10. Take a restorative yoga class at your local yoga studio. This special form of yoga utilizes nurturing physical postures to relax, rejuvenate and alleviate the effects of chronic stress in your daily life. Once you know the routine you can practice at home in your personal space.

11. Light some candles in your bathroom, put on some soft music and take a warm bath. Add some muscle relaxing bath salts and a few drops of Lavender oil to calm and relax your mind.

12. As all your worries and fears rise up to engulf you, just remember what is happening in the given moment. Anxiety comes from creating a negative future in your mind, one that has not happened and will probably not happen. It is all a product of your imagination and if you can stay focused on what is happening in the present you can reduce the stress this way of thinking can cause.

This is so not working. The only method that really works is to get rid off that problem that cause stressing out. Walking in park or drinking herbal tea or even having a massage won't fix it because in the back of your mind you know that the problem still exist.

Thank you, great ideas - However, being a Complimentary Therapist, I have to say that I'm MUCH BETTER at giving the advice, than applying to MYSELF - really must change that in this New Year

I need a chiropractor. I don't like the standard herbal teas, but I do love my Japanese green tea.
