Want to release stress?
Focus on HOW you want to feel and HOW you would feel if you were totally free to enjoy the moment.
Take a virtual break.
Imagine you would put all your problems, fears, duties, things-to-do aside for only 5 minutes, knowing that they will still be there after your 5 minute break.
Take a deep breath. Exhale. Relax you facial muscles. Smile. Feel your body consciously. Feel which muscles are more tense and relax those muscles intentionally. Visualize how the muscles become longer each time you exhale.
Be aware that you may always take deep breaths, smiles and allow yourself to feel good.
