What relieves you from stress?

August 3, 2009 2:34am CST
Reading a good story, listening to music, cuddling with my husband, watching a good movie, being with friends, just lying down on bed, seeing new places, talking to interesting people, laughing out loud at a good joke, riding a cool bus, on a banca in the middle of a lake, seeing the birds fly over my head, in the rice field, seeing many colorful flower, eating apple alone at home or at church, at the top of the mountain, writing my thoughts, eating ice cream on the cone, hiking with my nephews, drinking cold coffee, and praying. Wow! That is a whole lot of things to do to make me relaxed. This is surprising! lol How about you? What relieves you from the many stress of life?

Taking a long car ride in the country. Reading a good book relieves stress temporarily, however, usually I end up reading for so long, that I stress out again because I am not getting anything accomplished (like housework and stuff).

Hey, Well I basically just hop on the computer, and watch something funny or post on myLot. What this does is that it helps me to take my mind away from all the stress that is in my life, it is a good relaxer. Make sure you have a good day, God bless and Happy Lotting!!

HI beaushell,thanks for coming with this nice topic. Stress is always with us along as we live in this world. hehehe. We need to handle it wisely. Before this I was thinking it will be nice if I could go to some places to run and hide in order to release my tense and relax. But it needs load of cost and I started to feel more stress when I couldn't do anything to release it. But now,I have a new my own way to release my stress. Do you want to know what do I do now? 1. Just stay in home and do the cleaning jobs i.e cleaning my house, my room, and washing my clothes. It's kind of a bit tiring but I meet a big satisfaction when I see my house is so clean and of course home sweet home! 2. Make the others happy. If I'm not cleaning the house I'll cook some nice meal or dinner for my love one (my friends n my sister). It's priceless to see the smiles and the warm heart!!
