take a walk through the neighbourhood or in the nature. enjoy yourself, your surroundings and your thoughts as you walk without any music. let it, your mind, your thoughts run free.

· drink water

this might be the usual for some but for others, like myself, it might not be part of the everyday. throw in some ice or fruits of your choice and make it a little more exciting. it's important to drink water on a dailybasis.

· freshen your surroundings

· express your feelings

write down your thoughts. sometimes it's better to tell yourself then other people. what you're going through. events happening. your inner deeper thoughts and feelings. anxiety, depression, happy times, crushes, what bothers you, quotes etc.

· feel clean
