Even if you don’t have time to make it to the gym, try to fit in a short walk or some stretching in your day. Deep breathing can help reduce stress and anxiety in the moment. Take a few minutes to focus on your breathing and allow yourself to relax. You can also try some guided breathing exercises to help you stay in control.
