1. Explore your inner creativity by painting or crafting. According to the American Art Therapy Association being creative can help your brain to produce Serotonin which can help to reduce the feeling of stress. Why not take some time to explore the new Hobby Lobby in Rome? Something is bound to spark your interest!
3. Hug someone you love. Hugs may help to reduce blood pressure, and stress in adults.
4. Get your heart rate up through exercising, which can cause an endorphin release that dramatically reduces stress.
5. Laugh! Not only can laughter help you to reduce stress, it can also help to increase your energy levels.
Need a quick fix? Chew gum as it may help to reduce cortisol levels and alleviate stress.
