Do one relaxing thing.

85+ Self-Care Ideas to Improve Your Well-Being

Whether it’s taking a hot bubble bath or reading a good book, doing at least one relaxing thing each day (one that requires you to be awake) helps you calm down by giving you a break from work and everything that reminds you of what could go wrong with your day.

Think of daily relaxing activity as vitamins for your nervous system.

You can’t be “on” all the time. Giving yourself the chance to just relax with something you enjoy lowers cortisol and adrenaline levels and increases serotonin and dopamine, helping you feel happier and more relaxed.
