Don't forget to breathe. It's the body's first defense against stress, it's free and we don't take advantage of it. We breath shallowly most of the time. Take a deep breath down to your lower abdomen, expand your lungs, sent it up the neck, feel the shoulders relax and your brain stimulated. Let out a long long exhale. Repeat over and over whenever you need it. Sending oxygen to the tight places in you nourishes hungry cells so that they can feel good and relaxed and ready for action!

Stretching is a really good way to relieve your body of stress too. When you do the deep breathe exercise you can work on stretching out as well. It's a good idea to stretch multiple times a day. If you sit or stand a lot during the day stretching relieves the muscles from tension and atrophy.
