Quick & Easy Ideas

Rub your Hoku. Your "hoku" is that flap of skin on your palm that connects your pointer finger to your thumb. It's also an acupressure spot related to upper body tension that, when squeezed, can minimize stress by up to 39%-- that's according to scientists at Hong Kong Polytechnic University.

Extend your Exhale. An exhale that is slightly (one to three counts) longer than your inhale will induce a relaxation response in your body.

Share your Smile. Smoke & mirrors not needed when you smile. A smile boosts your immune system, lowers your blood pressure, releases yummy endorphins, relieves stress and is contagious. And for a deep belly laugh check out DamnYouAutoCorrect - not for children.
