Relaxation may be achieved in a variety of ways. For some, watching a movie is the best way to relax, whereas others relax in the company of friends or by jogging. There are many different ways to relax – something for everyone. Reserve some time for relaxation every day.

Tips for relaxation:
  • Find a pleasant hobby that lets you develop yourself: seeing your own development is motivational and allows you to focus on things than do not produce stress.
  • Find something that acts as counterbalance to your regular duties.
  • Do lots of different things than what you do when you study: if you read a lot because of your studies, do something entirely different on your leisure time.
  • Do not postpone your decisions: excessive contemplation will weigh on your mind.
  • Locate the causes of stress: does your life include heavy issues/people or do you react to things too seriously.
  • Exercising may help – yoga in particular!
