Count down.

Slowly count down from 10 and take a deep breath with each number. You can also try visualizing yourself sinking deeper into relaxation as you count down.

 

Practice imagery and visualization. 

You might be headed to a busy office for your internship, but you can still take your mind to paradise! Visualize yourself in a relaxing setting – such as a tropical island or a mountainside – and really focus on taking all of your senses there. If you’ve got some headphones with you, listen to some nature sounds, too!

Doodle.

Those little masterpieces you make on the side of your notebook actually help relieve stress! Keep a pen and notepad handy for when you need to get to your zen place.

 

Deep breathing.

In through your nose. Out through your mouth. Repeat. It’s as simple as that!
