How do you unwind? I am incredibly stressed this week and could use some tips before I end up bald!

I was really stressed for the last few weeks myself and it was getting pretty bad. I started walking and working out again to help and it really seems to have worked. I'm doing about 3 miles a day and hitting the gym every other day. My stress level has dropped for other reasons as of late, but this seems to helped a lot when it was high and it's helping to keep it low now.

Well apart from the obvious

Try going on you tube and looking up Frankie Boyle, David Webb or Mock the week. I did that last week and PMSL

Alternatively, just look up any comedian you most enjoy

The obvious?

You can use a ridiculous British euphemism if you like.

Good advice

when stressed I just escape it all and go for a bike ride in the country, or down to Windsor, mellows me out a bit

For me I write to destress. Anything. Be it feelings, my troubles, musical ideas. Anything that helps get my troubles down on paper and a release oytlet for me. And if that doesn't work there's always playing sport. Nothing violent just something to keep my mind of the stress.

But of recent I have found out that helping someone less fortunate then myself makes me realise how petty my little stresses are in the scheme of things. And I can work to help this person's life knowing I did a good deed and well it helps me.

Well that's what I do to destress. It might work for you. Who knows. Worth a shot.

Walking does it for me. Just getting out for a couple of hours with my iPod really brings me down.

I take a nice swim and then soak in a hot tub for awhile. Take a hot shower and then do some yoga and weight lifting.

If I still feel a little stressed out I do some meditation.

However the stuff above gets me pretty relaxed and the yoga and weight lifting pretty much tires me out, so I don't have time to be stressed out. ^-^"

i crank my music up reallly loud, open up illustrator and design my little heart out, nothing takes my stresses away more than designing, or even drawing on paper or anything that gives me inspiration for my art.

I like to run on the treadmill or grab them 30LB dumbbells and start pumping, I also like to do push ups. When Im mad I get the ambition to do lots of weight lifting and stuff like that to improve my self image
