I got for a walk or do something physical. Releasing stress physically really helps me.

Going to zumba class twice a week really helps if I am stressed. Also, walking my dogs and listening to music. I try not to eat when I am stressed because well, I am working on losing weight.

I get really frustrated when I'm stressed. Anxious, jittery, mind is a jumbled mess. Can't get comfortable with anything. No patience. No tolerance. Too tired to put any effort in anything.

I try taking a long, hot bath with relaxing salts. Helps me get centered again. Then depending on how I feel afterwards, something to zonk me out for 17 hours or so.

- Running/walking. Put on some angry music (eminem or some madness lol) and just pound the pavement.
- Cleaning. Scrubbing, cleaning, organizing, disinfecting (clorox wipes gives me a weird sort of control of the world)

I do those things until I am 100% dirty and sweaty and disgusting and satisfied with how clean everything is.

Then I take a LONNNGGGGG hot shower. get into my pajamas.. fall into bed, watch netflix and eat until I feel better.

Pleasure food binging. (Cereal, goldfish crackers, chocolate.) Sitting down for an hour to play the piano. Listening to loud music (Disturbed is my favorite when I'm stressed) followed by soothing music (piano or orchestra, normally). Writing in my journal. Watching stupid TV, or a kiddy movie. Something that keeps you entertained, but doesn't require brain power. Shower, feel clean and tidy.

Oh. and sex.
obviously lol the ultimate stress reliever.

It's like a workout and a massage with about 100000 more endorphins lol

Work in my garden or go for a walk or hike with the dogs or go for a swim gets my mind off some of that. Playing piano is something I always did before, but haven't lately. Singing is a good stress reliever too. I tend to eat more fattening things when I'm stressed.

Walk the dog, sing, do chores, meditate, chant a sutra, write, eat, or sex for one.
