5 SOS tips for immediate relaxation in everyday life

Take a deep breath

Have you ever noticed that you breathe faster in stressful situations? This creates additional tension. On the other hand, if you breathe deeply and slowly, you automatically become calmer. The best anti-stress tip is therefore to take a few deep breaths in and out. Inhale very slowly and consciously through your nose, hold your breath briefly and exhale again through your mouth.

Short walk

Even in very stressful moments, you can find five minutes to briefly walk around the block. Do this as often as you can, the fresh air blows your head free. After the mini-walk, you feel more relaxed and prepared for whatever the day may bring.

Tip: Of course, a long walk is even better. Every now and then you just need some time for yourself. Listen to music or lose yourself in an interesting or exciting audio book.

Let in fresh air

If you really don't have any opportunity for a walk, you should open the window wide and breathe in the fresh air deeply and slowly. This calms you down and your brain is supplied with plenty of oxygen.


Laughing is the best way to get rid of stress in no time. Remember a funny experience, give a friend a quick call and ask her to tell you a joke. No matter what you do: just laugh loudly and heartily.

Run cold water over your hands

If nothing helps, you can briefly run cold water over your hands and wrists in the bathroom. That refreshes immediately and you come down a little.
