Stress can also be managed through exercise or movements like tai chi or yoga, often called meditation in motion. The stretching postures in yoga cause the body to increase dopamine, a feel-good neurotransmitter.
Meditation is one of the simplest methods you can use to reduce stress. It can be done almost any place and any time you have a few minutes to sit. It does not require special props or space — just you, your mind, and your breath.
There are numerous breathing exercises you can find floating around on Facebook or YouTube. One technique borrowed from yoga is called a balanced breath. In a balanced breath, the length of the inhalation and the length of the exhalation is the same.
