I'll meditate, think of things I'm grateful for in life, read a good book, watch a funny movie, talk to friends or family, exercise, think of good memories, think of what I want for the future. I wouldn't call my life stressful now, but it use to be or I just made it stressful. Then slowly I have been tackling all my problems one by one and I'm now very happy with my life. I've learned that you get out of life what you put into it.

I'll usually watch animes. That'll surely cheer me up. I will also run. Running is the best way to de-stress for me. When I run, I feel all my frustration and stress being discharged from my body as sweat.

Exercise in general helps me vent off stress. I run cross country, and I do agree that after a run I feel better. Not physically, because I'm tired, but mentally better.

I try to do something active like going to the gym or just dancing around to loud music at home - or maybe get stuck into some gardening. Otherwise, I'll write, or do some sort of word puzzle to get my brain on a different track. I think your philosophy is quite right.

It isn't always easy to deal with stress. I usually just try to sit and relax for a while. It usually does help me once and a while to collect my thoughts. Then I can get back to what I was doing. Meditating is a good idea. It's hard for me to do. You really need to know how to concentrate. I think that everyone needs to vent off stress once in a while.
