Many people have a tough time trying to relax due to stress, work, school, and anything else that gets in the way of fun. But here are three awesome and effective ways to truly relax during all of the chaos.

First of all, taking a nap can be a great way to relax. Closing your eyes and tuning out the world for even just 25 minutes can help to get your brain working again and to be more productive than before you fell asleep. It’s understandable that not everyone has that time to spare when in reality so much can be done, but taking a nap can also improve your mood. After taking a nap, you could be more refreshed and ready to take on all of your stressful tasks with a positive attitude. Approaching the annoying, and sometimes pointless, work with an optimistic point of view can make actually doing the work less awful.

Another great way to get yourself to relax is to listening to your favorite music. because Sometimes, all anyone needs is a really great jam session. Since music has a unique connection to our emotions, it has the power to relieve some of our stress. Not only can listening to music boost your mood, it’s also just really fun to listen and sing along to. Whether you listen to rock, classical, or pop, it doesn’t matter because whatever you like will be what relaxes you.

Third, stretching and getting up from whatever you are doing can be a stress reliever. Having tight muscles while doing something can prevent you from focusing on the task at hand. Feeling loose and relaxed can help a person get his/her task done more efficiently and get rid of the stress that is being brought on, while also being a simple and effortless task. Getting up and taking a walk can also help as a relaxer because it allows the brain to take a break and focus on something new, and can also help to get rid of the build up in your nerves, so that when the task comes up again there are fresh ideas waiting.

Although we all wish relaxing could be an “all of the time” feeling, it cannot, but these three ways can help to make your tough times not so tough anymore.
