    What do you do to relieve stress?

    Here is what I do:

    • Take a drive in the car and blast the radio.
      Make a graphic on the computer or surf the net for distraction.
      Mindlessly stare at my fish tank.
      Pet my cat to induce the soothing purring sound.
      Blow bubbles.
      Pick up a book to take me into someone else's life.
      Do pushups.


    What do you do?

    This is great! I am teaching a class in a few weeks about how to survive college, and stress management is one of the things I will be discussing.

    Things I do:
    - Walk around Target aimlessly - I love that store!
    - Sing
    - Drive and sing at the same time (unless driving is what is making me stressed, haha)
    - Pray
    - Bottle it all up and let it fester (ha!)

    I am interested to know what everyone else does!

    ~ Find something fun to do with my sons
    ~ Wander aimlessly thru the fabric (or craft) store
    ~ Lose myself in a project: sewing, crafts, home improvement. Whatever sounds good at the time
    ~Read, do word puzzles
    ~Organize something

    Now if only these things actually worked to lower my blood pressure. I stress out very easily. :(

    * knit or crochet
    * paint
    * retail therapy (only if i can do so kid-free. otherwise it's a whole new stress)
    * vent on the phone with my girls
    * clean - but that's more of a situation where i'm harnessing the stress and being productive with it.
