Taking some time off for yourself can help ease the daily stress buildup. Experts believe that breaking off from your extra work and giving time to your mental well-being and physical health proves fruitful in the long run and improves your productivity.

Prolonged exposure to screens, extended working hours, and bringing extra work home are some common reasons for stress in our life. We are unknowingly involved in these activities, making our days stressful. One must understand that work may sometimes be stressful, but not daily. However, most of us let our jobs influence our non-working hours when we should relax our minds.

10 Ways to Mentally Refresh After a Stressful Day

So, if you are looking for an answer to how to refresh your mind after a stressful day, then you have landed at the right place. We have compiled a list of ways in which you can refresh your mind and feel happy always.

10 Ways to Refresh Your Mind After Stress

Here are the top 10 ways to help you refresh your mind after stress full day:

1. Jot down your thoughts

Expressing your thoughts on a piece of paper is something that will help you ease your stress. It may seem daunting after working, but writing down what and why your feelings are can help you relieve your stress. Journaling your worries, problems, something that is bothering you, things on your mind, all your anxious thoughts, etc., is a great help.

These things help you get the negative thoughts out of your head and get a much clearer perspective. This lets you control stress better and manage your emotions. Moreover, journaling can also help you in your day-to-day life by helping you in improving your ability to recognize important things and organize your day accordingly.

2. Tune into your favorite music

Music heals your heart! It has been proved that music can help condition your heart rate and lowers your blood pressure. Also, it has been found that music certainly soothes your mind, and it has been proven in many studies. So, whether you are returning from the office, going for a walk, or even journaling, listening to your favorite playlist can help refresh your mind after stress and brighten up your anxiety. The best part about listening to music is it helps in relaxing your stress and thus make you find your daily work less demanding.

3. Nature therapy:

Get some fresh air: Spending time in a garden or a park can help you big time.

Vitamin D: Scientists have proven that a dose of Vitamin D can boost your mood. So a morning & evening sun bath is essential for your mental health.

Feel the wind: Sometimes, a gust of fresh wind can help wake your senses and open your mind if it is saturated. So make sure that you interact more with nature. Fresh air can help increase the supply of oxygen to your blood and improve your efficiency. So even while working in the office, try to sit in open spaces around if that is possible.

4. Social media detox

Unplugging from social media might be challenging, but if you are facing a tough time managing stress, it is the need of the hour. While social media might help you in connecting with people, it builds unnecessary pressure on you about how others are living the life of their dreams. The happiness, creativity, success, luxury, etc. of others’ lives that you see on digital media might not be as good as it looks. Unplugging not only helps you stay away from all this unnecessary information but also helps you in saving time that you can invest in productive work.

5. Meditate to stay focused

Meditation can help you in introspection. And once you introspect your problems, you will automatically manage your stress better. The control you gain over your body and mind through meditation is an excellent way of tackling stress.

6. Family & Friend therapy

Spending time with friends and family allows in sharing your problems, feelings, and anxiety with others can greatly help. It helps you build stronger relationships and gives you a sense of feeling that you have people you can rely on when you need help.

7. Swimming & Bath

Taking a cozy bath or going for a swim can help you ease your daily stress. Water helps you in relaxing both physically and mentally.

8. Do a small thing/read a book

When you feel very overwhelmed, doing a small thing might help motivate you to get past the stress and get things done. Completing a small task like reading a chapter of a book helps your mind boost itself towards completing a task.

9. A Power Nap

Sometimes all you need is a small shut down for your brain. Sleep is the best way to give your brain a quick rest. A power nap is something that helps you rejuvenate the power of your brain.

10. Exercise/Yoga

Stretching your muscles help release various hormones that give you a good feeling. As a result, it helps you in reducing stress and pain. With regular yoga and exercise, you can make sure that your stress levels are under control.


Sometimes it is hard to calm down, and we feel very overwhelmed, no matter how much we want to console ourselves. It may be due to work stress or general life problems. So, take a second for yourself and relax by doing one of the things mentioned above.
