Sometimes I used to just scream and scream and scream. (when I worked in accounting) I felt much better after, but did not do it too often - it made my throat sore.


Walk in Peace and Harmony.

Hi everyone,
I'm new here but I'd have to say that I release stress best by listening to good music while having my eyes closed. I'm a pianist, and really enjoy the romantic type pieces, they can take you off into another world when you just listen to them.
I created a short youtube video to a clip of my piano song "Autumn Leaves." It's meant for a quick bit of relaxation in your day. You can find the link in my signature if you'd like to see it. I hope you enjoy it!

The 3 things that help me in releasing stress are workingout, listening to my favorite songs and deep breathing. Breathing is best one, always works smile

I usually do yoga after work, or take a walk around the neighborhood. Or attempt to meditate. There's a website where you can actually create your own space and 'meditate' on the web. It's fun to visit when I'm at work and I need a quick 5-min relaxation time. That, and squeezing stress balls.

Musicgirl, I couldn't watch your video because I got an error message saying the "URL contained a malformed video ID". Did you move it or change it?

I have found the last few months, with the stress of caring for my aging Mother, that I have really enjoyed deep breathing with my eyes closed and visualising peaceful scenes and thoughts. I also have been exercising more and that has really helped.

I just had a brief discussion about one of my favorite shows NOT being like a "medical soap opera", and I finished my part of the discussion by taking a REALLY long breath and holding it, while I closed my eyes. It made me de-stress almost immediately, although I did not win. wink

Walking. Whether it is in nature or not you are outside which makes it easier to clear your mind and relax.

A key aspect of most stress release techniques is the ability to train the mind to quiet and observe without judgement. The core of meditation. You can do that while showering, taking a long bath, going for a walk, exercising, or simply sitting still. The more you can train your mind to quietly observe without judging, and realizing that whatever is happening around you is temporary, the less likely you are to attach meaning and emotion to it. You realize that everything we experience is transient. It will all pass into stardust. Just like we will.
