    Candles, writing, movies. But more than anything, books. My own personal stash of enjoyment novels.

      Lburmaster, thank you for your comment, I agree that reading a good book helps blow off a little steam.

    (1) I escape and play ice hockey (old-timer's...) and/or work-out at our college gym (treadmill and universals). Exercise releases hormones that reduce stress and actually improve your cognition. 
    (2) I read the Liturgy of the Hours and/or a good book (note I define a good book perhaps differently then you; however, the key is to select a book you enjoy)...
    (3) I spend time with loved-ones (spouse, our children, close relatives and/or close friends.
    (4) I sleep well and soundly (take power naps; once every-while)...
    (5) I slow time down; that is I reduce and/or eliminate "being-in-a-hurry" (Biah Syndrome). This is critical if you do this you will have reduced your stress significantly. This may mean that you must get more organized...

      connorj,
      thank you for the reply; you certainly seam to have the stress under control, and I agree about the exercise giving you chance to let it all out, as they say.
