What Do You Do to Relax?

I’m at that point in my blogging experience where I feel like I’ve been having a conversation with a friend on the phone, only to realize that we lost the connection some time ago. You know that feeling like you’ve been talking to yourself for a while, only you don’t know exactly how long? Well, that’s how I feel. I would like to hear from you, the people who read this blog.

I had a friend tell me recently that she just hadn’t figured out the the whole commenting thing, so let me explain how that works. Let’s say that I just posted a terribly fascinating article about wind-up toys, and you love wind-up toys and really want to tell me about how a wind-up toy saved your life. You don’t need to register to post a comment. All you need to do is pick a name and enter it in the box. Now this does not have to be your actual name. You could be known as MuffinGirl or Czarchasm or FluffyBrownBunny or whatever. Then enter your email, which is not used for anything other than a possible communication from myself, thanking you for posting about wind-up toys. Next, enter a website if you have one. If you don’t, then don’t enter one. It’s okay. Finally, you tell your story about wind-up toys and myself and other readers get to learn from your expertise and wisdom regarding wind-up toys.

Here is your chance to step up to the virtual plate and take a swing at a topic. Ready? What activity helps you relax during periods of great stress? I ask because I’ve yet to really find a quick and effective way to deal with stress. What do you do?

  1. If someone else is around I like to play some co-op video game fun with them and laugh and have some interactive action or relax to a quiet board game and chat and vent about problems in-between turns. If alone, I may get the weights out and exercise a bit or play some video games. Exercise inside or taking abike ride helps clear the cobwebs and especially if outside I like to watch the world and things around me and get my mind off things.

    Over the weekend a friend came over and we pulled out a child hood Toss Across game and had a blast. Spur of the moments games and fun with friends is always great for stress relief. Just call a friend, ask if you can come over or invite them over and just “hang.”

  2. Oh my gosh! I followed directions and now I can post. Wow, I have already reduced my stress. When I am not figuring out how to post then I play a game called JigWords. It’s very much like Scrabble. You are given 6 letters to begin with. There are a lot blank tiles to the right side of the screen of varying lengths. These represent the words that can be made with the letter combinations that are given. I started at level 1 on the evening that I downloaded the game and I played until I hit level 55.
    Great stress relief.

  3. Hello

    Most of the time when I am really stressed I sit down with a good book and read a story or two.
