Chamomile

Chamomile tea promotes relaxation. Scientists say you should try and drink three cups every day to help kind of get yourself into a relaxed state.

Omega-3

Omega-3 is a great way of lowering cortisol and adrenaline levels, which helps you relax more. You can find that in things like walnuts, oily fish such as salmon and tuna.

Take a Warm Bath

Scientists have found that raising your body temperature to a comfortable warm temperature actually helps reduce anxiety. Epsom salts will also help lower your blood pressure and help you calm down.

Sunshine

The sun gives you vitamin D, which promotes kind of general wellbeing and will help take away some stress.

Exercise

Studies show that it only takes 21 minutes of exercise to help you feel much calmer and more relaxed. By doing some gentle exercise, such as going for a walk or a run, or heading to the gym, or doing a dance class will help to promote feel-good endorphins and help you feel all-around calmer and happier.
