For a great stress reducing exercise, try breathing deeply. It oxygenates the blood, helping to relieve stress. So put your hand on your abdomen just below the navel. Inhale slowly through your nose and watch your hand move out as your belly expands. Hold the breath for a few seconds, then exhale slowly through your mouth. Repeat several times.
