    I have a two:
    Writing- Just getting things off your chest and out in the open
    and laying with your back on the ground and your legs against the wall, so you are in an L shape. I am not sure of the exact science behind it, however, it is extremely calming.

      Thanks Bredavies!  I will try those (I already write but am very intrigued by the L shape idea)!

      My yoga instructor told me the same thing.  I do yoga and breathing exercises which helps me reset for the day.  I want to try colouring such as The Secret Garden which has very pretty intricate designs for adults to destress with colouring.

    Take a few minutes to stop, breathe deeply, inhale peace and exhale anxiety and stress with each breath. Say it in your head while you're breathing. Then go back to whatever you were doing, emptied and renewed.

      Also be prepared ahead of time to handle any problems in the elder years. Some folks with good genes are lucky and can go on cruise and do all sorts of things.. Do everything you can do in spite of problems. Overcome adversity.

    Read a good book, watch a movie, drink some beer - anything that'll get your mind off of whatever is stressing you, even if only for a little while.

    I will go out and do shopping or eating out or seriously do some gardening. It helps me unload any stress I have in my life. Let us face it that life is always accompanied by stress but if we just remain calm and think that it is not the end of the world when we are faced with stress then we will be okay. I find that tending to my plants help me a lot with stress or just go and sit in the garden or have a walk for half an hour or two then I will be feeling okay. This is my way of dealing with stress or talk to trusted friends for advice.

    Jamie, you dear young lady.....Yes, I have advice about "stress."   Do the very best you are able to get through the rough spots, the stressful situations and the day to day problems of life.....for another...oh, say, 25-35 years or so.
    Once the children are adults and have gone off into the world to make their own impact and path, you've got a good start.   Soon enough you'll retire and contemplate a good plan for the rest of your life.  If there's a hubby.....you and he will have reached "The Point of Knowing what Really Matters & What Simply Does NOT Matter".....(Trust me, very little will be all that vital anymore)   and BTW, that's the Title of the Book I'll be writing over the course of the next decade.  What's the hurry?
    You'll find out who you truly are, what you REALLY love to do and learn how to direct this new dimension called "Freedom."   You'll move in the directions of your own choices, whenever you choose, however and with whomever.   You'll take naps, bubble baths and go to a Day Spa.....have lunch with friends and sit in the shade, lazily reading a book or listening to music.............
    Lo & behold Jamie......No stress.  Zero, Zip, Nada!  You've done your time, you've paid the price, you earned it and deserve it.  ENJOY every second of it. ....GUILT-Free!!..........( I'm sorry I have no advice on how to take the shortcut to this Heaven......If you figure a way, you'll be writing your own book!!)  ......Peace, Paula
