    Stress Relief
    How do you de-stress from work
    (or whatever else puts tremendous pressure on you)?
    Never argue with an idiot.
    The person watching, may not be able to tell the difference!

    I think I posted this in the wrong area.
    Can it be moved to the fitness area or whichever forum it should be in.

    Thanks

    Mind numbing TV, cooking (which I really enjoy), cleaning (which I do mindlessly when I'm super peeved)... spending time w/ friends... a good vent session helps!!

    Pamper time is what de-stresses me best. Spending time with people I'm close to and most importantly - spending time on focusing on ME (which I usually forget to take time for in my day-to-day life)!

    Good ideas.

    I also just subscribed to a newsletter and bought a magazine about stress - spent the afternoon reading and getting ideas.

    Good idea! Daily or weekly motivations are great for keeping stress and anxiety levels in check. They may not solve problems instantly but they do help remind us to keep a level head and to refocus on our goals; on the bigger picture.

    I forgot to add going for a brisk walk or doing anything else fast paced and active is one of my favorite ways to let off steam. I don't have a lot of time for being active (like most of us with desk/online jobs) so when work gets to be too much nothing is better than getting AWAY from the computer and walking to clear my mind.

    I try to have a good laugh. It feels so good just to have one of those gut wrenching, belly aching laughs and after that, life suddenly doesn't seem so stressful anymore :-)

    Everyday life can take a toll on someone and unfortunately stress is a part of everyday life. There are healthy alternatives like meditating and also by diet/exercise and all natural products. I found an awesome product called Stess Relief.

    Gardening, particularly Composting and Soil Amendment. Hopefully I will soon be semi-self sufficient in Vegies.

    I enjoy golfing to help me relax. Nothing feels better then sitting in a golf cart on a beautiful course with a beer in your hand. It's heaven.

    Yeah I gotta agree with Ryan on that one...nothing helps me relax more than pounding 300 yard drives.

    Where are you in Ottawa Ryan? I'm originally from the Hunt Club area in Ottawa. I usually golf at the Royal Ottawa over in Alymer.

    I have to agree with the 3rd post. And I like just plopping down on the couch watching TV or a DVD.

    I am actually living on the East End right now. I haven't actually found a nice course yet that is reasonably priced. The closest I have found is Mont. Ste. Marie... It's beautiful but the hardest course I have ever played.

    I like going hiking or watching a movie. Talking to a close friend usually helps, especially one that can give you an objective view and make suggestions.

    Running and doing laundry (especially folding laundry!) are at the top of my list. Talking to a friend can also work well - it's always reassuring to know you're not the only person who's stressed.

    HypnosisDownloads.com has some great downloads for stress relief (The word "hypnosis" scared me off at first) but they really are just mp3s that show you how to relax and focus on positive thinking.

    Walking/aerobics also works well.

    I read comics (goes with the good belly laugh Susan already posted) and magazines. I love to read books, but when I'm stressed I need something for a shorter attention span.

    And I run or bike. Exercise is the best cure, but it's hard to get motivated when I'm stressed out.

    Anytime you're stressed please RUN your way over to my home. I have a TON of laundry for you to do (10 year old who can't stay clean to save his life and a hubby who comes home dirty from work each day - and then there's me - a different outfit for every activity in life)..... since you love it so much!!! LOL

    Laundry is on my least favourite list of things to do. I don't mind washing it - I just hate putting it all away!!

    Just take a break. Any kind of break.....

    Take a walk to the store, have something to eat, take a hot (or cold, depending on the weather) shower, sleep 12 to 14 hours, whatever.

    I've been finding that lifting weights helps to get rid of my stress lately and the muscles feel oh so good afterwards - i love that burn

    Yoga. I can't recommend it enough. I started doing it because I have back and breathing problems but I found that it also helps with stress.

    I also read before I go to sleep each night.

    Walking and swimming do the trick for me - swimming being the better of the two (unless there are gorgeous women out there - then it's just as stressful trying to get a good conversation going.. )

    Oh, and an occasional beer..
