When life slams you with a really, really big stress item, one of two events will occur.
A. You will either have a panic attack or heart attack.
B. A “circuit breaker” will kick in and suddenly all the stress just simply disappears.
The occurrence of one of these two events will take place about a week from the initial stress inducement. If it is event “B” that occurs, a side benefit is that trivial stuff won't bother you anymore.
God no. Spending money is not what I consider a stress reliever. Not this day and age of recessions and foreclosures.
of course, both shopping and sushi are good stress-relievers - however, they can be expensive. A nice nap is cheaper!
I don't shop for stress relief. It actually stresses me out to shop. I really hate spending money, even on things i need.
I like shopping but I have no money which makes it stressful when shopping cause I have to add everything up in my head.
I totally agree schoolgirlforreal.....have you tried "window shopping"? It's quite fun just to look at stuff.
hey puppy j/k lol
yes window shopping can be fun :-)
I do however shop for myself as a treat or needed and that can be fun like buying a new dress esp after i've lost weight
That's a nice treat for yourself! We just need to be a wise consumer when we go shopping. I learned from experience. In the past, I have had bought things that I didn't use, although I bought them on sale. Now, I just buy things that I need because everything is so expensive nowadays.
meditating helps... just finding a quiet place where I can level out my energy. If I'm able to do that for 20 minutes every day, I'm happy.
No, I find shopping very stressful. And buying things to clutter my house even more will cause further stress. I agree that meditation is one of the best cures for stress.
I'm with you, Sherlock. I can't stand stores which explains why I have a very poor wardrobe! I also hate having a cluttered house. Goodwill loves me!
I hate to shop as well..and many people "shop ' but never buy anything...some buy and return it all ...and I think they get a rush from looking and imagining..
I am a man who mostly enjoy playing soccer so much. However, I usually go to shop with friends rather than staying alone in my room. Sometime, my shopping is just a window one that walk for buying nothing and talking with friends. I really accept your idea that shopping makes you unstressful but for me, I desire to play sport if I have a stress.

My answer during job interviews when ask how I handle stress is proper time management and knowing my priorities. But most of the time, when the work load is too much, it becomes hard to stick to these two rules! My queston is, how do you really handle stress?
