Stress relievers
 
How do you relieve stress in your day to day life?

I swear I was on the verge of a panic attack the other day from so much stress.

I have a colleague who goes to the rifle range and shoots things. She claims it makes her feel much better. (I try very hard not to make her angry.)

What a great idea! Gonna get my 22-250 out of hock, buy some hollow points and go shoot some rotten apples or old melons or something that will really blow up.

Calming your self
 
Something I do is called "square breathing" You breath in for a count of four,hold for a count of four, breath out for a count of four and hold again for a count of four. Repeat as necessary. What it does is slow your heartbeat just a little while focusing your attention away from the stress for a minute. It is also a good way to still your mind as a beginning to meditation.
of course hollow points DO have their place.

That breathing is a good technique. I really got to get serious about stress relief.

Yesterday I developed a throbbing twitch on the side of my head. Now it's back...very annoying...and almost gives me a headache.

I play music alot. I go with r&b when I need to calm down. Or I will do is pick up a book, that always does the trick. Or watch a comedy.

good deal
 
Wyo I'm glad it worked for you. Amazing how something so simple can help. Do take care of yourself . As women we tend to do so much for everybody else it's easy to forget to do for ourselves.

Musicm for sure, usually some epic sounding metal and I'll forget all that is causing some stress. LOL.

I do tend to JAM OUT in my car while I'm dashing around. Got my fade set just how I like it. The college has a good station nowadays, and there's always the rez station for either old time country or powwow jams. I have Sirius but don't take the time to turn it on unless I'm on a long trip.

The breathing really helps during the "stress points" when I feel my blood pressure rising. It's similar to my "4x4" breathing when hiking. I put it in low and go. 1(in) - 2 - 3 (out) - 4....in time with each step. It's a habit, so not hard to change it up to the other 4 square breathing.

Stress relievers for income tax time:
iPod
Ruger .22 Magnum
Hot tub
Vacation to Hawaii (I wish)

The throbbing has subsided and I'm trying to adopt a "no worries, mate" policy.

That's what I like to do to, throw down some lead, but there's only so much time in a day...so I can't get to the range as often as I'd like to ....so...I go with deep breathing...or excercise...
weights help out a lot too....

I have a good method to relieve a lot of stress! But it takes two people!! :whatchuta

Stuff flies, lots of deep breathing, exercising included, but no weights needed! :smile:
