(Virtual) tropical getaway
If you tilt your phone screen slowly while playing this video, it will feel just like you are on a plane about to head to your dream island destination. Until we can actually do it IRL, this is the closest we can get to dreamy blue ocean waters!
I'm not sure *what* it is about watching the fire descend towards the camera that makes this TikTok so relaxing, but it will definitely make you slow down for a second let out a deep breath. The beautiful music in the background is also very calming, making this a great digital stress-reliever.
Unlike typical TikToks that feature energetic music and intricate dance moves, this video plays a single note that has been scientifically proven to help ease your anxiety. Sit back, close your eyes, and let this sound get rid of *all* your negative energy.
One of the best ways to soothe your stress is to do a breathing exercise, as it will help you focus better and ease tension in your mind and muscles. @breathwrk posts tons of easy-to-follow breathing breaks that are especially tailored to return your mind to a peaceful and positive state.
Nabela's aesthetic daily routine
Nabela Noor (@nabela on TikTok) blew up on the app for her daily "quarantine routine" videos, which she sets to soothing music and shares relaxing moments that she spends in her stunning home. After contracting and recovering from COVID-19, she began a new series on her account called "Pockets of Peace" which continues the same messages. I would 100% recommend scrolling alllll the way down on her account and watching all of them: they are so refreshing and relaxing!
Just a daily reminder, love you <3♬ Sunny Side Up - Surfaces
Sometimes you just need a reminder to be thankful for the blessings in your life and to take a moment to enjoy the little things. Reading this message each morning will help you get your day started on the right foot and put things into perspective.
Easy fitness yoga
@yogafavor posts simple movements that you can do for a few minutes each day to get amazing physical and emotional benefits. For example, this pose will help clear your body of negative toxins and relax you when you are feeling stressed. It might feel a little silly, but even following a movement like this for a few seconds each day can totally change your mindset.
It's *impossible* to be upset when you are looking at a view this good. Who else is excited to take a cruise once quarantine restrictions are lifted and COVID-19 cases are no longer skyrocketing?
