    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.

    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
