What helps me the most is music, I put my favorite music on and it usually calm me (the score of Batman Begins and anything from Rammstein works the best but theres more too). Walking too helps a lot (when i end up somewhere where the only sounds are from nature i can even clear my mind completely like when some people do while meditating...thats a rarity for me these past years...even when watching Hockey i have at least 1 moment where my mind goes somewhere else). Also repeating the name of Shumi over and over (Michael Schumacher...when i do that i repeat his full name) helps me very much not only when stressed but when angry too.

I live with the reason of my stress and depression so it is hard to get away from it all; when they do not stress me I am still face to face with them.
