While we might not be showing obvious signs of stress, cortisol—the hormone associated with stress—wreaks havoc on our mental and physical health over the long-term.

So, it's important to make time to calm our minds and bring some peace into our lives, even if we're not feeling anxious.

Of course, meditation is an incredibly effective way to create a calm mind and I highly recommend that you meditate as often as you can.

The problem is that most of us don't have time to sit and meditate daily. So, here are 10 simple things you can do to calm your mind if you don't have time to meditate.

1. Focus on gratitude

When we're facing a series of challenges, it can be easy to slip into tunnel vision and focus on what's going wrong at the expense of noticing what's going well.

Even taking the time to write down just three things each day that we feel grateful for can help reinstate a balanced perspective on our day-to-day experience.

2. Practice self-compassion

I know that I am harder on myself than I am on anyone else, and I think many people are the same way.

Practicing self-compassion means acknowledging and accepting reality and extending the same kind of compassion to ourselves that we would to a good friend who is in trouble.

Self-compassion can help us stop measuring ourselves against different standards compared to other people.

3. Take a long bath

Nothing calms quite like a long, peaceful soak in the bathtub. Baths help you relax by making you take time to step away from the hustle and bustle of the day.

Add some lavender essential oil to the water to make it even more relaxing.

4. Set routines

Setting routines might sound like a recipe for boredom but it actually helps give us a day-to-day sense of peace in our minds.

When we have set routines, we have less decisions to make during the day.

This frees up space in our minds for bigger, more important tasks.

5. Create a daily list of tasks

Like setting routines, making a daily task list can give you peace of mind because you know exactly what you need to do that day to accomplish what you have to do.

Nothing creates stress more than thinking of something you forgot to do just as you're getting ready to settle down for the night.

6. Stare at a favorite piece of art

Whether it's a Van Gogh, a favorite poem, or a sculpture your child made in first grade, looking at our favorite art can bring us a sense of peace.

Just try not to think about why you like it. That's not important.

7. Exercise

I know what you're thinking. If you don't have time to meditate, where are you going to find time to exercise?

Exercising for just 10 minutes can release endorphins, pain-killing chemicals that help induce a state of mental and physical peace.

Try taking a walk during a break at work or parking in the farthest space from the store or work. Any exercise is better than none.

8. Pet your favorite furry friend

There is just something about stroking the fur of your favorite pet that brings an instant sense of calm.

Whether it's the softness of the fur, the repetitive motion or the love and affection you feel, petting your favorite fur baby will release your tensions and pull you away from the stresses of the day.

Infuatuation

This is the first step of all relationships but it remains on a shallow level. It's usually a fine line between lust and love and infatuation never usually makes it past the lust and into a meaningful connection. Yet, infatuation is often disguised as love and can be confusing.

The more both parties are physically attracted to each other, the more they want to spend all of their time together and move a relationship really quickly from the get-go. However, this kind of relationship is usually short-lived. When relationships get too intense, too quickly, they don't tend to take the time to build a solid enough foundation to grow on, and many of the red flags just get brushed off only to come back later.

Liking

This is usually the second stage of a relationship. Once we decide that we are attracted enough to someone, we become open to getting to know them better. From there, the more we get to know them, the more feelings are developed based on what we know. This is still an introductory stage to relationships, because the more layers are peeled, the higher the risk of finding some sort of dealbreaker that ends the relationship there.

During this stage either feelings will develop closer to love, and increase passion or commitment, or they will eventually fade and grow closer to a friendship It all depends on shared values, interests, and needs.

Empty Love

This is a tricky kind of relationship. On one hand, it is an exclusive relationship with an agreed-upon commitment. Couples experiencing this type of love could spend years on end together but still lack intimacy and passion. They may truly enjoy each other's company and care deeply about one another but still be missing that special spark that makes everything come together.

Over time the relationship becomes comfortable but boring. It's not necessarily that anyone is doing anything wrong, but there is no denying that the relationship is just missing something to make it feel passionate and exciting.

Fatuous Love

This is the most common type of love as it includes two of the three foundations: commitment and passion. Couples often find that enough to pursue their relationship and exchange their vows. Yet, this kind of relationship despite having attraction lacks true intimacy.

These kinds of relationships go through many ups ad downs, they have their good days but they also have the days where they feel like they're not truly happy or like their needs aren't being fully met. This could be due to differing love languages or because the couple isn't able to reach a high enough level of vulnerability to fully give themselves to someone else.

Romantic Love

This kind of love has another combination of the three pillars of love: passion and intimacy. The feelings are there and so is the attraction. Couples in this kind of relationship feel really close to one another and it's easy for them to open up. They fall deeply in love, rather quickly and naturally. The only problem is they can't necessarily agree on where the relationship is headed so they just brush it off.

They put off serious commitments hoping to just go with the flow and figure the rest out in time. Unfortunately in many instances, the relationship reaches a termination point because of major commitments that can't be agreed on.

Companionate Love

Companionate love consists of commitment and intimacy, another combination that is still lacking. This type of love is somewhere between the line of friendship and love. There is somewhat of an attraction that makes the friendship feel stronger but it's mostly due to the strong bond that's shared. This kind of couple is each other's best friend, They trust each other fully, and are able to be completely themselves.

The attraction is there and the love is genuine but it's missing that head over heels super-in-love kind of feeling. Many relationships develop into this kind of love after many years of marriage.

Consummate Love

This is the ideal kind of love and yet it is the rarest of all. It is made of all the pillars of the perfect relationship: love passion, emotional and physical intimacy, and commitment. The levels of each vary throughout time but there is enough of each to keep the relationship young even after years of commitment. Arguments are resolved peacefully, affection is given freely and plans of the future are carried out.

These couples are just as in love as the day they met during their final days. They find ways to keep their relationships exciting and keep on surprising one another. They never allow themselves to truly get comfortable and stop appreciating what they have. They trust each other fully while still pursuing their own independence.

Healthy Love

All that matters in love is that you are happy and the love is healthy. The rest can be developed and worked on with the right person. In any relationship, always look at how you feel and ask yourself: does this person make you love yourself more? Do you want to grow old with them?

Love is more than just kisses and butterflies, it's much more than that. If you want to know more on what your birth chart reveals about how you love and what you need out of a partner, check out this personalized report based on date of birth.
