What Helps You to Relax? We all know for many years that yoga helps us to relax. Another relaxation exercise is Tai Chi. For me Tai Chi works for stress relief even better than Yoga. Tai Chi is a martial art, but also it iworks very well for mind calming and relaxation. When you are doing Tai Chi your breathing is better and you can meditate. It's one of the best exercises to reduce your stress.
