How To Calm Your Nerves In 5 Minutes Or Less #WellnessWednesday

Is a hectic day getting the best of you? Is that job interview giving you major butterflies before you get there? Feeling a little anxious and you have no clue why? Here are a few quick tricks to keep in mind when you want (or need!) to quickly calm your nerves.

Use progressive relaxation. You can do this by consciously tensing up your muscles and then releasing them. You immediately feel the difference between your body super tense and more relaxed. Try to isolate certain muscles by tensing them up and slowly releasing. This will bring you into a quick state of calm, and is also proven to help with sleep.

Create a distraction. Another thing that is vital to calming your nerves is distracting your mind from negative or stress-inducing thoughts with some quick techniques. One thing that I like to do is keep a hair tie on my wrist and play around with it whenever I am feeling anxious. My mind is focusing on something totally different, like the feeling of snapping the tie against my wrist or wiggling it around my arm.

Meditate. Learning how to meditate and being able to get into that zone whenever you are feeling a little bit stressed or anxious is so important.

Be sure to check out 3 before-bed habits you should adopt to sleep better at night and aromatherapy 101.
