If you didn’t know yet, acupuncture and self massaging is a thing-You can treat yourself with only your hands and a few other massage tools on your pressure point such as the palm of your hands or feet, and temples on your forehead and back of your neck.

Surrounding yourself with positive energies is more important than we think-Find out who you want to spend with based to how they make you feel. Being sociable is great, but depends who with. The best friends will make you feel great, even if its by text, talking to someone close to you will help you lower your stress levels.

Moderation is key when it comes to avoiding over stressing-If you need to get something done , such as work make you sure you take breaks every 15-20 mins or so as it will help you relax and focus. And if you’ve spent too much time on something, stop everything and go out for a while, some fresh air will instantly make you feel better.
