Are you constantly feeling stressed at work or at home? Are you looking for ways to feel more relaxed? Here’s what you need to know.


  1. Wake Up Early


Do you hate waking up early in the morning? Well, it could be the reason why you’re not feeling as calm as expected. Why don’t you wake up early tomorrow and see if it changes everything? You will improve your health and also freshen up your mind. Even better, you will have more time to handle tasks and chores.


Therefore, by the end of the day you will feel calm after completed your scheduled activities in a timely manner. You will have some spare time to spend time with your loved ones. Sleeping a few extra hours might be doing more harm than good. So you need to wake up, get out of your Denver mattress and see what being an early riser has to offer.


  1. Get Outside For Some Fresh Air


If you’re cooped up indoors at work for at least 8 hours every day, you need to get outside for some fresh air. Your body and brain will thank you for it. You can try a little exercise while you’re at it too allowing your body to relax naturally.


  1. Leave Your Work In The Office


Don’t carry your work in your tablet, smart phone or bring some files home with you. Working all day long isn’t good for you. Forcing your body to work extra hours will actually kill your productivity. Eventually, you will not complete it on time forcing procrastination. Your body does these things intentionally. Leave your work files at work and have fun with your smart phone rather than leering at work files all day and night long.


  1. Listen To Some Music


Are you feeling a little frustrated at work? Try listening to some music. Look for upbeat songs for the best results. Your mood will change very fast. Avoid sad and depressive songs that dampen your overall mood since you will end up feeling worse.


  1. Remove App Notifications From Your Phone


There’s no need to check all the notifications from your phone’s apps. Looking at your social media apps for every ping can be quite boring. You don’t need to know what happens in real-time, unless you’re a social media marketer.


  1. Reduce The Amount Of Time You’re Spending On Social Media


How much time do you spend on social media every day? Well, if it’s a lot, you should cut it down substantially. Eventually, you will have more time to yourself and other tasks. There’s so much else to do only if you lifted your head from your phone for a few hours. Keep in mind that social media is a good way to keep yourself connected but it doesn’t make sense for you to spend all your time on social media.


  1. Task Automation


Try automating as many tasks as possible and leave a little time for yourself. With more time on your hands, you will feel more relaxed. It might be impossible to automate all the tasks you have, start with the simple things. For instance, paying your bills can be easily automated and doing that will make a huge difference in your life.


  1. Block Spam


It might take a while but you need to remove all spam emails in your inbox. Even better, unsubscribe from all the blogs, newsletters and websites you’re no longer interested in. If you’re receiving fewer emails every day, you will actually boost your productivity. If your workspace is cluttered, your mind will start procrastinating and the same applies your email inbox.


  1. Remove Clutter And Organize


Whether your home or work space is in a mess, you need to think about ways to remove clutter and organize. For your work space, you should use trays for your files and arrange the folders neatly. For your home, try deep cleaning once in a while for the best results. Serving clients or doing your job in a clean area leaves you feeling more fulfilled. If you leave work and head to a clean home, you will definitely feel more relaxed.
