    what's your favorite way to relax and relieve a bit of stress? I need some new ideas cause whatever i'm doing isn't working!

    Right now I do two things: I take an antidepressant, and I usually have a few glasses of wine every night when I get home.

    Sorry to hear that.....
    I have some very specific methods that work for me. The first one is (surprise surprise) dreaming about sex, but I suppose you may have tried that.

    My other one is my books. It usually works, but if I am REALLY stressed, I sometimes find reading difficult, so I just flip through books about art or nature and look at pictures.

    A walk in the park often works if the weather is beautiful.

    Hope you feel better soon!

    hmm as of two days ago if my stress levels rise.. a cigarette has soothed me. But I'm not going to recommend that.

    A Walk, Tae Bo, Dancing while listening to music.. has helped also.

    This song always makes me feel nice and relaxed that or ANY Bob Marley :)

    Hope you feel better nurse <3

    Hit the hockey rink and kill anything that moves. Stressed out, pop somebody into the glass, they look at you the wrong way, drop the gloves, very thereaputic and good exercise.

    a great physician I once saw told me a highly coveted secret..it works for some but not others I suggest you might try it.. I believe the technical term for it was the horizontal tango.
    you can thank me later.. ;)

    Not sure it will help you...but I grab a shovel and go dig some dirt in the yard. With about 6 acres of land...I got lots of room to dig...and have one hell of a lot of useless holes all over! Latest one is about 4 feet wide...3 feet across...and a couple feet deep. Might turn it into a fire pit...burn some voodoo shit...see if that helps too...

    Feel better quick!
