Relaxing is one way to release stress. There are many ways to relax to release tension, relax the body, and calm the mind. There is no one right way to relax for everyone.
There are some people who feel that meditation might be the best way for them to feel relaxed.
But there are also those who feel relaxed by doing sports.
Any activities that distract from stress, then do it.
Like reading a book, taking a walk in the park, taking a hot shower or just drinking almond milk.
