Smoking , I know they say it doesn't relieve stress but you've never seen me when I don't smoke . I'm a raving lunatic .
Exercise and a nice long shower!!!
Poke snails in their eyes
I have to admit that I smoke, and I tend to smoke a lot when I'm really stressed. I know I need to find another way to handle it, though, because I've recently found out I'm pregnant. (Please, no bashing, because I am trying to quit)
Chat with friends on E/P.
I do the same :)
Listen to loud music, usually metal or the like. Today at work (pizza delivery, today was totally FUBAR), it was a rotation of Otep albums, going to buy something else tomorrow, some At the Gates if I can find it.
Smokin' ganja!! Wine and Newports...
best solution ever
I like to have sex.
Run or dance. When I dance, the world disappears and it's only the music and me. When I run, it's like the stress can't catch up to me, even if for a short while. The endorphens handle the rest.
Cry, listen to music, run, all of them together. Depends what kind of stress it is.
Just like me...I also add.I walk a lot or try to sit in calm,quiet place like park or botanic garden and relax myself relase my body and soul from tension.
mild zone stress -- clean vigorously<br />
medium zone stress -- go for a run<br />
danger zone stress -- blast out metal music and drum<br />
gets me happy :)
sex, tanning, working out.
I read books but most of the time, I watch films. Honestly, I'm a painstaker......<br />
I can easily cope and adapt situation..........
I garden, clean my house, go on the computer and do yoga. Sometimes I shop but I buy things I don't need causing myself more stress so I try to avoid that little habit. IAnd I really have the last few years for the most part.
If that's 'you' in your avatar, I'm immediately smitten by your smile and unadorned beauty.
Forgive me for being so forward.
I also have started smoking again, not much and not proud. Hope to find a friend to share thoughts with.
Friends are out there if u will make ur self available in the right places.
Talk to the dead. I hallucinated dead friends and relatives through a physical illness and although I know my mind was creating them through sleep deprivation (I think?) I found talking to them helped me to de-stress and cope with extreme pain. Perhaps imagining talking to someone you trust, (even if you don’t like them), is a way of dealing with stress? Talking to people in the real world doesn’t always help.
I am a yoga practitioner so I sit and practice pranayama-breathing with a mantra-breathing in I think the word "Be" breathing out the word "calm."
