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