Create a new playlist dedicate to pick up your mood. Add in slow soft songs with meaningful lyrics and mellow tunes.

Even playing a musical instrument can help you refocus on something else for a change.

  • Paint

Pick up your brushes and paints! Art is a great way to let out stress on paper or canvas. Many find the process of making a mess with paints and colors a good way to relax.  If you don’t like organised mess, you can divert your mind by drawing or sketching.

  • Dance

Dance like no one is watching is a very accurate term. Pump up the music and let loose your hair. Dancing actually helps you shake up your tired body and increase blood flow to all parts of your body. It’ll help calm you down and keep you healthy as well.
