Lately, I could not concentrate on mylot as much as I want too. I have been pressured with my paper work and some programs and projects. My stress had been draining much my energy. All I want to do now is to take another flight again. I want to go to a foreign country and be inspired once again. I am dreaming of taking another adventure outside my country. How about you? What do you do to get rid of that stress?

Today I had also to concentrate to my paperworks, I need to feel in the tax forms, an annoying but necessary task.

Yes. What is more annoying is that you are not yet done with 1 task, then there will be another, and another.

@annierose,Whenever I am overburdened and therefore tense,I generally prefer to go out for 5-7 kms long walk.It relieves me of all my stress and fatigue.I have never been to foreign countries so far.

Going to places are good too. I think if I am living in the countryside, I will also appreciate walking because there are not much vehicles and the air is fresh.

@toniganzon Does yoga originated from India?Based on what I have read, there are also words to say while doing yoga. Is it like a silent prayer?

Soft music, quiet time, or just hit the sack reasoning that tomorrow the problem will still be there so no need to fret about it.

I do not like punching sacks. My hands are quitr small for that and it will get hurt. No gloves here. Anyway, yes. That is good too. I remember what I saw in TV episodes, some people break plates just to release their stress. I do not agree with the idea. Plates have a cost and I do not like spending money to buy another plates.

@annierose _"Hit the sack" is an idiom meaning to prepare or go to bed which is what I meant. But now that you mention it, Hitting the punching bag is a very good way of relieving stress. Like if you were angry with your boss and have no way of getting at him/her, Place a picture of your boss on a punching bag and start hitting him/her

@josie_ Sorry, I did not get it. I thought you mean it literally. Anyway, that is a very good idea. Printing the photo of my boss and punch it hard for giving me many paper work

I haven't read the Bible for such a long time. I guess it is time to spend time reflecting on it again.

I agree. We should pause for a while and think so we can plan better what we must do.

I handle my stress by going to a cool, quiet place where I could take deep breaths, rest and relax for sometime. I need not travel to do this. My garden is a perfect place for this.

I listen to music a lot and I write. I literally will write anything, a story, a fan fiction, a poem. I don't even know I just sit and write. And if I do not feel like writing I watch my favorite youtubers.

That is good way too. Are you active in sites that pays you for writing articles? I love to watch movies from youtube, but I get pissed off when internet is very slow. So I just stop myself from doing it.

@annierose I have such a hard time thinking of articles to write! Haha, I wish I could just be given a topic to write and do it.

I have noticed that, you've been missing lately. Ahm, stress reliever? A box of pizza and a can of soda will do.

Wow! When I am stress I cannot eat. You are lucky you can release your stress by eating and drinking alone.

I normally don't get rid of it. I seethe and I boil until I suddenly explode in rage against the injustice of the world. Then I start petting my cat, and he reminds me that most of the things that trouble me really aren't that important.

Pets especially dogs are good too. They are also like humans and we can talk to them. I miss having pets. Sad to say, I cannot have them in the house since I am always out. I cannot take good care of them.
