If you have: one minute

Try tapping

Also known as the Emotional Freedom Technique, tapping has proven useful in managing stress. The psychological acupressure technique works on the meridians or energy points in your body, reducing levels of the stress hormone cortisol and sending calming signals to the brain.

Li Si Yang, a health and fitness coach from Hawaii-based Journey To Fitness, says your meridian points include the fleshy side of your hand (under your pinkie), eyebrows (where the brows meet the nose bridge), side of the eyes, under your eyes, under the nose, chin, collarbone, under the arm and the top of your head.

Using your index and middle fingers, tap these meridian points repeatedly for one minute using medium to hard pressure.
