How to melt away tension

To benefit your heart, learn how to relax your mind.  Read below....

1.  Learn to laugh.  Laughing helps to release tension by changing your mind in times when you usually feel tension or get upset.  Laughing reduces stress hormones that tax your heart and increase your load of feel good endorphins.  Children laugh 300 times a day while adults laugh about 15 times a day.  Feel like a child again and laugh.

2.  How many times have you heard that you need to exercise.  The statement holds true even today.  Exercise more.  Exercise helps your heart to be more efficient and lowers your heart rate in stressful situations.

3.  Do you ever check to see if you are still breathing?  Breathing deeply and allowing your lungs to bring in enough oxygen is very beneficial to the way you might be feeling.  Inhale through your nose deeply, and exhale through your mouth.  Exhale longer than the inhale to remove as much of the bad air as you can.  Then inhale deeply again.  Practice deep breathing when you are stress free so you remember to breathe under stressful situations.

4. Join a yoga class....
