Another great way to relieve your stress is simply walking. One article I have read said that walking just 20 minutes can reduce your stress by changing your body chemistry and easing your nervous system. The more rhythm you keep by swinging your arms, the more you relieve stress. And it's beneficial to note that you don't have to walk really fast to get the same benefits. A simple, slow stroll is all you have to do to get the stress relief you deserve.
