The easiest form of relaxation exercise is simply to practice deep breathing/mindfulness. To make this practice a true stress reliever that calms the tension in your mind and body, it's best to begin by doing this exercise somewhere quiet, where you are free from distractions like television. As your skills increase, you can try practicing this technique in different situations, whenever you feel stressed.
Find a comfortable position, either seated in a chair with your feet flat on the floor and hands resting in your lap, or lying down.
Take a deep breath in and then let it out.
Continue inhaling and exhaling, focusing on breathing slowly and deeply. As you breathe in, notice you are breathing in. As you breathe out, notice you are breathing out. Do not try to keep your mind free of thoughts. Instead, simply acknowledge them and return to your breathing.
Begin by doing this for five minutes, and work your way up to 10 minutes or more.
As you become more comfortable with the rhythm of deep breathing, try to make your exhalations twice as long as your inhalations. For best results, try to make deep breathing a daily habit by practicing for five to 10 minutes around the same time each day to relax.

Expressing gratitude for such things will become second nature as you begin to notice all of the things around you that you have to be thankful for.
