How to Chill Out,When Life is Crazy


No crystal ball, woo-woo chants, or weird bendy positions required

Just five easily implementable tips to relax. 



Eat some Chocolate

Just a square or a kiss of the sweet stuff can calm your nerves. Dark chocolate regulates levels of the stress hormone cortisol and helps to stabilize metabolism. My favorite way to relax with a piece of chocolate is to just let it melt on my tongue! I feel like my stress melts with the chocolate!

Breathe in the calm

It takes just a minute to drip some lavender, frankincense, or another calming essential oil into your palm and take in a deep breath. The soothing scents can help send stress and anxiety out the door by stimulating smell receptors in the nose that connect to the part of the brain that regulates emotions.

Walk it Out

Just walk it out! When you’re feeling overwhelmed or having trouble concentrating, go for a quick stroll around the block, the park or around your office building. You’ll get the benefits of alone time, physical activity, and a few minutes to gather your thoughts


A good belly laugh can increase blood flow and boost immunity. I love the simplicity of laughing with a friend—plus it’s FREE!  PS: If no one is around you can always watch funny cat videos online!

Create a Peaceful Place

Hiding in a bathroom or your closet might not seem calming, but it is important to make a space for yourself that’s completely free of stress (and phones) where you can go to relax. Set up a comfortable chair or pillow, grab your favorite essential oils and disappear there for a few minutes until the your tension releases.
