Great ideas indeed. Thanks to everyone. I agree also, that my stress detoxer is my Lord. He gives me strength each day that I am so very greatful for. I could not make it without it or Him. Its the sweetest love I know :) Also, I have a sister that is in very special need of this strength to over come a deep depression she is in. She is a Christain & we do not understand her deep sadness. She is a lovable person. It has to come from stress for people year after year ( I have been told it is inheritated- this could be possible since our mother was also many yrs ago before she passed) It is so worrisome & heartbreaking. Doctors cant find a medician that will work. If you would please remember her in your prayers, I would greatly appreciate it more than you could ever know. Thank you
I love to go for a swim, or take a warm to hot bath.

Good article and great comments! I love my little canine friend too. One look at her sweet face, and I can smile for the rest of the day.
Some stress is unavoidable, but for those who mentioned that family members add stress to their lives, I suggest avoiding them. It doesn't work for everyone in every situation, of course, but I've personally been caught up in the heartache of unnecessary family drama, and I found that if I just avoid it, I'm a much happier person. It's almost too easy....just avoid them. LIfe will go on for you, and soon you'll wonder why you felt the need to stay in the mix of trouble.
I think the tips are good ideas. However I have so little time sometimes and family members that don't help much is the support area that my stress is difficult to get rid of. If anyone has any more tips I would be happy to hear them. Thanks!!
Great info! The tips are simple, I enjoy exercising, watching comedy. Because when I am stressed I always like a good laugh. I also play with my kids, and prayer and meditation is my daily stress relief practice.

In the list of articles linked to this one there's one titled "De-Stress in 3 Minutes or Less" and another elsewhere on Sparkpeople titled "10 Ways to De-Stress in 5 Minutes or Less". These both seem like they'd be of use to those looking for super quick at-the-desk solutions, like those concerned with stress eating or smoking. Hope it helps!
