Best 27 Ways To Relax In Less Than Five Minutes

3) Cuddle up to your furry friend

One of the most adorable ways to relax might just be cozying up to Fido. Petting your cat or dog can lower your blood pressure and raise levels of the feel-good chemical serotonin in your body.

4) Give yourself a hand massage

Grab some coconut oil or lightly scented lotion and take time to release the tension in your hands. To release stress from the shoulders, neck and scalp, focus on kneading the area under the base of the thumb.

5) Journal

Taking time to write down your worries, fears or dreams can help declutter your subconscious mind, allowing you to be fully in the present.
