2. A hot water bath
This is the best way to relax your body. It washes your worries temporarily
and helps bring a better thought process.
Take out some you
Every day, make it a point to spend some time with yourself. You can have a
walk, sit in a silent corner or take yourself out for lunch or coffee. It really
works and helps you introspect better.
4. Maintain a journal
Write down anything and everything. Studies have shown that writing is the
best way to vent. On the other hand, you can also maintain a happy journal
wherein you can make note of the good things that have happened to you.
Re-visiting these diaries will definitely make you happier.

Switch off the lights and light candles. Try lighting scented candles - they
bring a sense of calm and can help you relax at the end of a tiring day.

Yellow is the colour of sunshine, new beginnings and freshness. Paint
yourself a yellow corner or just buy a cute yellow colored teddy bear. Winnie
The Pooh is a great start!

while growing up is really a treat. You take a lot more from it than you did in
your teenage years. Instant happiness!
