Stress-Busting Moves That Work

- COSMO

Here, five easy ways to calm down in a hurry.

Step up socialising:
Having a tight network of friends is what helps you deal with bad times. Plan some low-key hangouts with a mix of buddies.

Smell the roses:
Treat yourself to a bouquet of flowers or light up a rose-scented candle. The scent helps ease tension in many people.

Have sex – often:
Studies show that getting it on with your guy helps lower cortisol levels and put you in a good mood. Do you need a better excuse?

Eat happy foods:
Snack on foods rich in B vitamins and magnesium, which are believed to calm nerves. A handful of nuts is a good option.

Laugh: Laughing eases tension and lowers the amount of cortisol (stress hormone) your body produces. Find your favourite comedian on YouTube and chuckle away.
