 I enjoy taking a hot bath and reading a book. Lighting candles and just using that time to not think about anything beyond what I am reading is always a good way for me to relax.

Exercising can help and a good thing to focus on.  I plan on doing that when I get more recovered from delivering my angel.  I have taken a bubble bath and read a book and those are good things to do as well.  Try picking up a hobby you want to try or did before.  Sometimes even getting out of the house and doing something for myself no matter how little or small helps me.

I like to take walks or write to relieve stress. Or just laying down, not really sleeping but not really doing anything else either.

Do you have any hobbies?  When I had my appt. with my endocrinologist a few weeks ago and I was mentioning how anxiety was taking over my life, my doctor asked if I had a hobby.  She told me that she deals with anxiety, mainly at night, and she plays the piano to relax.  My son's 4 year b-day is coming up and I decided to make the decorations for his parties (I used to just buy them), and I feel quite a release from it.  Honestly, I don't have a "crafty" bone in my body, but I'm realizing that maybe I'm better at it than I thought!  ;)   If you can find something to focus your attention on, it may help.  Taking up a hobby may be very therapeutic for you.  I know it's helping me!  Hang in there...hugs!

Exercise is a great way. Also walking. Even a relaxing bath or listening to soothing music.
