Read. If I'm SUPER stressed then I'll read in the tub with candles lit and a cup of hot cocoa :D

I used to hate reading now I do find it so relaxing! 

Quoting mamacalifornia:

 Go to the library get a good book, take a hot bath!

I think it depends on what is going on. The most effective renewal is quality with my Lord. It may be a quick heart felt prayer at the sink, or reciting scripture in my mind to help my thoughts revolve around him more and less about myself (which was probably my problem to begin with) or breaking out in a praise and worship song. 

There are other things in the form of a hobby that are renewing such as sitting along with a good book, or cup of hot tea or coffee, tv time, or just quite reflection. I think the key for me is that it is quiet! We have 4 yound kids so it's normally very loud in which ever room I find myself in :)
