  • I find answering questions on Answers relieves a lot of stress.

  • I eat, but that turns one problem into another if you know what I mean!
    Lately I have been stretching. Just getting down on the floor, feeling myself breathe, still thinking about what's stressing me, but going through every limb and muscle that I can and stretching them out slowly. I guess kinda like yoga, but I just stretch how I want, no actual yoga poses lol
    Screaming is good, just scream it out in your garage or something! lol GL!

  • Yoga,finding time for myself,go for walk at the beach,journal,talk therapy, go for a ride in the car and crank up your favorite song and sing on the top of my lungs(just make sure the kids aren't in the car),and sometimes I just need a good cry and I feel better.
