I read a book, watch That 70's Show or go for a walk. The last one is accompanied with an iPod and headphones to blare music loud enough that I don't think about what's stressing me out.
Jigsaw puzzles de-stress me. Takes my mind off of all my problems.
I identify what thoughts I am having/believing that are contributing to my stress and question their validity. Sometimes upon examination I find that they aren't even true or real, other times I find that I just don't really know if they are true or not and so hanging on to the thought is just a waste of energy, and other times I recognize that while the thought is true I can also see that I am exaggerating it in my mind. I have found that distorted or exaggerated thinking is usually most of the cause of my stress and the situation I am becomes easier to deal with when I address the thoughts first.
Meditation is something that always de-stresses and relaxes me. Othen than that music helps as well.
I read. I grab a book and sit down, have a cup of coffee, and lose myself in the book.
I take a Xanax. If I don't I have the potential to eat myself out of my house. I am such an emotional eater. Another thing if I don't get myself relaxed, sure enough I will break out with shingles, fever blisters, a skin rash or something. So I take a Xanax to avoid it all.
When I am stresses and need to relax I listen to some smooth jazz and
if the weather in Chicago permits I relax on my deck.
I eat ice cream. It revitalizes me and gives me clear perspective. Perhaps due to its sugar content.
I either write, watch a film or listen to music one of them normally helps! x
