When we are feeling worried or anxious about something or we just need to relax because we’ve had a busy day, talking to someone can make you feel a lot better. First of all, if we are worried, the trusted person we talk to might be able to help us come to a solution and we might realise that our worry isn’t as big as we thought it was in our heads.
Another way to help you relax is to practice taking some deep breaths until you feel yourself calm down, more positive and in control. This is because the deep breathing helps our heart rate to slow down. Watch this video to do a relaxing breathing exercise. I hope you feel more relaxed by the end of the session :-)
