Welcome to 21st century. Social media ecosystem,coming-of-the-age technology options and cutting-edge industry solutions; these are the new ethos which govern our lives. Merely running the race just won’t cut it anymore; you need to ace the race every single time the starting pistol goes off. And when that starting pistol goes off, it also opens floodgates to depression, anxiety, and stress. These maladies have become so commonplace that one might be unaware that he or she is struggling through them.

To help you get to the root of the issues and to empower you with unique methods of relaxation so that you can finally found the much sought after peace and tranquility in your life, here are seven ways to bless your life with relaxation:

So time management skills become of vital importance if you want to keep the stress at bay. Have a purpose and a plan to complete it and you will be more punctual and disciplined in every task that you undertake, which ultimately will equate to a life of less stress.
2. Think positive.

So start your day with positive affirmations. Write down all the things that you are grateful for. Listen to a 10-minute uplifting guided meditation. It might feel forced in the beginning but stick to it and soon positivity will become a daily mindset.
3. Avoid loneliness.
Nothing is sadder and stressful then being lonely and having no one of share those fleeting moments of joy and sadness. Find people with whom you can share things. Volunteer at a library or thrift store. Sign up for Meet-ups in your city. Join a fitness class. Make time to reach out to the fellow being and spend quality time with friends, family, and mentors.
4. Go to a comedy show.
Yes really! If you are stressed, grumpy or depressed, turn off the news and switch the channel to your favorite comedy show or movie. Better yet, grab a friend or relative to go out with you and attend something funny, whether it is a live comedic performance or a comedy movie at the theater.
