4. Nature Walks: Spending time in nature can have a calming effect on the mind and body. Take a leisurely walk through a park or forest, breathe in the fresh air, and enjoy the natural surroundings.

Just being in the presence of nature, its natural calming green ambience can do wonders to relax you during tiring and stressful times.
5. Creative Activities: Engaging in a creative activity, such as painting, drawing, or writing, can be a great way to unwind and reduce stress. These activities allow you to focus your mind on something other than your worries and can be a great outlet for self-expression.
Again, don’t get caught in mental blocks like you are not an artist… this is not about winning an art competition. This is about self-expression and letting your inner emotions be expressed thru colors, music and so on…
