Five Easy Tips To Be Happy and Relax After a Busy Day
Happy and Relax Tip #1. Rest your eyes.
Your eyes are unique and eye care is often neglected.

- Stay still and take a few rounds of slow deep breathing.
- Make sure your jaw is relaxed as you breathe in and out through your nose.
Happy and Relax Tip #2. Play music.
Classical, rock, R & B, socca, reggae or good ole country music. Whatever style of music relaxes and turns you on, play it, sing along and feel good as you reconnect with your inner heart song.

Stress happens when you do too much and don’t take time to relax, rest and recharge your batteries – you get overwhelmed and stressed-out.
Learning to say no, to stop and trust your intuition often prevents you agreeing to do something which in the long run is detrimental to your health and well being.
Happy and Relax Tip #4. Relax your body.
- Lie down in a quiet and if possible darkened room.
- Slowly tense and relax first your legs, then your arms, your buttocks, stretch your shoulders up to your ears, close your eyes, scrunch up and relax your face.
- Take a deep breath in and slowly breathe out.
- Try and lay still for at least 10 minutes before getting up and reengaging with your day.
Happy and Relax Tip #5. Give yourself a big bear hug.

As you hug yourself, smile and be happy for being the special person you are. Spend a few minutes sitting quietly recalling pleasant, happy thoughts.
