Relax your muscles and relax your mind, focusing only on your breathing. Tip Chant a mantra, such as "Om," in rhythm with your breathing. Step 2: Get a massage Get a relaxation massage. In contrast to a therapeutic massage, which is designed for pain or discomfort, a relaxation massage is intended strictly to relieve stress. Step 3: Practice yoga Practice yoga. Enroll in a class or learn on your own. More than mere exercise, yoga intends to balance body, mind, and spirit through exercise, breathing, and meditation.
