Have you ever felt the need for a time-out from stress and anxiety? What to do when you need to reduce stress and anxiety can be a really tough question! With lots of answers, everyone has their own way of timing out. To just isolate yourself into oblivion. If any of these thoughts have been coursing through your mind then this blog post is for you. Taking out time can be hard when you don’t know what to do to cleanse your aura. On days like these, it feels necessary to just take some time out and take breaks from all of the stuff that is going around you.

Here is my list of things on what to do when you need a break:

  • Play online games
  • Take long walks
  • Sit in silence
  • Meditate by breathe deeply
  • Take a hot shower

Play Online games to blow off steam:

Don’t know what to do when you need a break. Well, play some ludo. Yes, something as simple as playing can be so miraculously cleansing and healthy. These games can take you out of your reality for a couple of minutes along with being an activity that can be enjoyed with friends from around the globe.

Take long walks:

Take yourself out of the environment for some time this helps you gain perspective and be on your own. Walk around the house or go to a park, breathe in the fresh air and take in your surroundings. Listen to the birds chirping and the greenery growing around you. Walking can really help clear out your mind and relax some jittery nerves as you get in some much-needed distance and work out. It improves cardiovascular functions which are good for your heart I have been in the habit of taking a 30-minute walk every day since I was a kid.

Sit in Silence

Take 10 minutes out of your daily routine at night and just sit outside in the dark for 10 minutes to listen to nothing. Dong nothing for 10 minutes, no phones, no devices. Just let your mind have a rest. Just breathe and listen to the silence and let it engulf you. It is a very mindful technique of relaxing your brain and body by being one with nature and letting your inner self go.

Meditate by breathing deeply

I bet you’ve heard of this before, Inhale and exhale. Take one long breath in and calmly release it and imagine all your worries flowing out of you and leaving you feeling calm and relaxed. I can assure you it works, it is a trial and error and it will take you some time to get a grip on how to release completely, but once you do the results will be incredible. When have we ever done something that is genuinely good for us? Never! I would recommend using the Calm App to beat anxiety and enjoy deep sleep. It offers a number of mindful guided meditations to calm your mind and help you sleep better. Sit in a comfortable and solitary place where you can easily relax and let go.
