Start living a relaxed life with these 3 mental health tips. 1. MINDFULNESS Looking for the best way to relax? Find a quiet space to meditate. Take deep breaths. Don’t think about what makes you feel stressed but rather focus on your breathing. Acknowledge your feelings and thoughts and don’t judge them because they all are valid. 2. TAKE A BREAK What does it mean when they say ‘stop existing, start living’? It only means giving time for yourself to do things that make you happy. To relax yourself, you have to satisfy your cravings, may it be food, or inner peace. Nature is a great stress reliever. Relax by taking a walk with nature and let the fresh air calm you down. 3.
