When you feel weighed down by stress, job, life, kids, school, spouse, your mother, whatever, what's the thing/activity that acts as chewing gum for your mind and a stress reliever? Reading, sex, eating, drinking, TV, singing, surfing, swimming, sky diving, sewing (seems to be a lot of "s" activities)? What does it for you?
Lately it's been HubPages. But typically I'm all about reading, some fantasy or sci-fi, anything that let's my mind escape the day-to-day BS.
My potpourri/tart burners, fresh air, fresh flowers, listening to music, a pot of my own coffee (with lots of cream in it), a cup of someone else's coffee outside the house (alone or with a friend), finding something to do online that is not awfully demanding.
body= good sex
two combined is the real thing....!
You can write while you're having sex? Now, that's skilled.
Are you physically writing while having sex? (That must piss off your lover) or just coming (sorry for that) up with ideas? Either way sounds distracting reaching the prize.
I get some of my best story ideas when I'm swimming laps. That always throws off my lap count.
well, almost! it's intellectual stimulation....
We can if you want. But the really good one is in the sandpit. Lets go play in the sand.
Now you made me totally forget that I came in here to find out about Chewing Gum for the mind, and then I remembered I saw you Ralwus in my Hub this morning....you little pirate, and now I'm thinking...well, you never mind my mind...gum, anyone got gum?
I can be. Have to stagger out and fire up my tractor in a bit, my neighbor wants to use it. Screw him if you join me.
I love to shop online, so stress free and it's like instant gratification, I like cooking, fragrances and playing BeJeweled on Facebook, it numbs my overactive mind.
When I'm really stressed I like to call up my band members for a quick impromptu session. Music is a whole pack of bubbalicious crammed into my brain
I wish I could do that. We have a piano sitting in our family room I'd love to be able to play. I took lessons when I was a kid, but my teacher's gnarly, arthritic hands frightened me away. Wish I'd kept with the lessons. My daughter is taking lessons, but she's not exactly going to show up at Carnegie Hall any time soon.

Does chewing gum clean your teeth?Sometimes I am on the go, with no time or no chance to brush my teeth after eating, so I pop a chewing gum into my mouth in the hope that it helps remove food particles and prevent cavities.At the minimum it helps with my breath... But I wonder: does chewing gum...

How do you get chewing gum out of a pair of pants/trousers?I must have sat on some! Ugh! and now I can't seem to get it off. I tried scrubbing with hot water, then making it hard with cold water. Threw them in the washing machine and the nasty stuff is still there! help!

Which chewing gum has the longest lasting flavor?I'm trying to quit smoking, and I'm chewing gum as a substitute to cigarettes. So far Wrigley's "Extra" chewing gum seems to have the longest lasting flavor, but if you know of another gum that does please let me know.
