Play a tune on the guitar and sing along. That works even in the worst of times. By the time I’m done with the song, I’ve breathed deep, I’ve controlled myself to some degree to be able to sing on key :-), and I’ve come back into myself, and more into the real time moment.

Music and be a great way to relax. I am definitely not a great musician but I do love listening to different kinds of music. Singing along also helps me to become more relaxed. Usually at first I don’t feel like singing along or I think that I am too tired but once I get going it is fun and relaxing. Because everyone has different taste in music be sure to listen to music that is relaxing to you. This is important because listen to music that you don’t like can actually cause you to become more stressed.
The perfect example of music making you more stressed is when I used to make my mom go shopping with me and stores that would play really loud music. She would do in as long as she could stand it then would make me stand in line to buy the clothes while she waited outside. I always thought this sort of action was a little extreme, but loud unwelcome music can be a huge stressor, especially if you are trying to relax by going shopping or spending some time away from a busy schedule.
