According to Scientists, 15 simple ways to relax

The great way to relax is often by Meditation and many studies back up that idea. In a meta-analysis looking at several studies of relaxation training in people with anxiety, the observed effects of meditation were greater than those observed for other intentional relaxation techniques such as autogenic training{a process tat involves making your body feel heavy and warm} and applied relaxation.Other studies have also outlined its effect as an anti-anxiety and antidepressant method.

Getting a massage maybe a great way for some of us to relieve stress and relax yes indeed.

A small study looking at the effect of back massages on Japanese students preparing for exams found that people who got them had less muscle stiffness and lower levels of cortisol a hormone associated with stress. Some caveats though the study was small, and it didn't have a control group. In other words, there's no way to know if they'd sent another group of people into a quiet room and not given them massages tat they wouldn't have seen similar results. perhaps just from being isolated from their studies.

The key for relaxation is by regular exercise.

One way to relax the body is by excising it may sound counter-intuitive, but working out can help the body release mood elevating hormones, like endorphins, and reduce levels of stress hormones like adrenalineand cortisol.
