5 Easy, Relaxing Stretches for Stress Relief 

Start by sitting comfortably on the floor or a chair, with your back straight and shoulders relaxed. 

Gently roll your neck in circular motions, first clockwise, then counterclockwise, to release tension. 

Extend your arms overhead, interlace your fingers, and stretch upward, lengthening your spine. 

Seated forward bends can help relax your lower back; hinge at your hips and reach towards your toes. 

In a seated or standing position, rotate your shoulders in circular motions to ease shoulder tension. 

Cross one leg over the other and gently twist your torso in the opposite direction, holding for a few breaths. 

Release tension in your wrists by extending one arm, gently pulling back your fingers with the other hand. 

Finish with deep, mindful breaths, inhaling through your nose and exhaling through your mouth to promote relaxation.
