How can I discharge static electricity from my body?

I am planning to install a PCI Express Wifi-adapter in my PC. In order to do this, I would need to open my PC. I’m worried that if there is static electricity in my hands it could fry the motherboard.

I don’t have an anti-static wristband, nor do I have an ESD mat. Is there a still a safe way for me to install the PCI Express Wifi-adapter without frying the motherboard?
