  • I de-stress by cleaning my house! I turn some music on, get my son dancing with me, & get going! We make a day of it!

    Definitely walking and petting my dogs - preferably at the same time
    oh and swimming in our pool - just floating and relaxing
  • Whoever is responsible for your article images probably watched the shake weight commercials without laughing.
  • Playing my ukulele is my escape. :)

    A relaxer for me is my adult coloring book. I can get totally engrossed in it.
  • Color in. A coloring book.

    I agree with dog hugging! Our dog loves to be petted, massaged LOL You can't be stressed when your stroking silky ears and looking into soulful eyes.
  • Hugging my dog always helps. He's always willing to give me some love (unwanted doggy kisses!) or just lies there while I hug him and that always puts me in a good mood.

    Reading while listening to soothing music is also a big help.

    One time I made pie when I was fuming after an argument with my brother. The whole process of beating ingredients together calmed me down in the end.
  • CRAMPERELLA
    I would add meditation to that list. I have been practising mindfulness off and on for a few years and it has been a life-saver.
  • Don't you love that last sentence!!! Cute!
  • I am a big fan of a nice bath...I try to do it at least once a week. It is my quiet time...I take a magazine to read and have good music on. It's very relaxing. Never thought about playing board games...that might be fun, I LOVE Candyland but probably haven't played it in at least 15 years (since our kid was little - he's an adult now). Sorry is fun too!

    Journaling helps me a lot. I find when you write down your emotions and the scattered thoughts in your head, you become more aware of what you are feeling. Plus, it is like a release getting it all out of you.
  • I will remember your sister in prayer Justasiam knowing he is able an understanding the Lord loves your sister even more than you do
  • Listening to meditation and Spa like music soothes me when feeling anxious or stressed. I enjoy the free apps I use on my phone & iPod mostly at work.
  • Meditation always worked well for me. The karate dummy in my picture was good exercise, but a few people I knew said that beating it up with a baseball bat was as good a stress reliever as they had ever used; I never needed it for that purpose, but some seemed to get a lot of good out of it. When I worked construction it helped relieve stress to turn a torch way up and blow through thick steel, making a pretty shower of sparks that looked like the 4th of July; that probably isn't available to most people though.
