I usually put on some music that I like. Sometimes one song can change how u think for the rest of the day, music is so important they decided let’s put it in the cars we drive

Not well.

That said, the things that have been most successful for me are exercise, yoga, music, chamomile tea.

Since you stated that you spend a lot of time listening to music. You may want to sit in silence and just concentrate on your breathing for 15 or 20 minutes.

I enjoy listening to comedians because for me laughter seems to be the best medicine.

I have music play as I try to sleep
There are specific physical exercises I do when first getting up to wear down any residual irks from the day or night before
Two years ago I cut added sugar from my diet which improved my moods and energy. A lot.
Daily writing, reading, and Music- music is sustenance, reward, medication, therapy and lovemaking
Sexual distraction is also great to relieve stress

The only thing that stresses me out on a daily basis is my daughter acting up or saying “why” 3,000 times. I just give myself a mommy time out (usually say I am going to the bathroom and sit on the edge of the tub) and read a magazine or just sit.

If I am particularly stressed about a specific issue I tend to eat and/or sleep. In short, I gain weight.

Playing music has always eased my stress. With the family, that’s not always possible, so I always keep some “tinker” project going in my workshop, or I do some kind of work in the garden or yard.

after having my first panic attack at 16, i realized i need to take this seriously. i’ve tried writing all my worries down and setting aside 30 min everyday to worry. i’m a big music lover, that usually helps. EATING CHOCOLATE! i admit, i can be an emotional eater. watching a really funny movie. or releasing sexually…this one’s fun.

I usually put on loud music and run on a fast pace on my treadmill, it takes my mind off the stress and is very relaxing.

Take a nice relaxing shower and then take a nap. Or talk to friends on Facebook for a while. But that’s just my view ; )
