What do you do to relieve stress?

Asked by Kay (1608points) March 5th, 2008 from iPhone

Is there anything in particular (something that’s not been mentioned a thousand times before) that you find that’s effective for stress relief? I live in a stressful environment that I’m not going to be able to move out of until the summer & need some creative ideas. I exercise and try to do breathing exercises and use lavender but it still doesn’t help sometimes. Any new ideas?

I usually grab a blanket and go to the river and read for a few hours. Luckily I only live about a five minutes away from the river if I travel on my bike.

I personally walk it off (must be alone), or sleep it off.

There is a natural supplement called “Serene Calm.” It’s remarkable and a marijuana substitute.

It isn’t cheap but it’s definitely worth it, take it with another supplement called “Lumina.” Your stress will disappear and your clarity of thought will sky rocket.

Highest Regards,

Serene Calm is a remarkable supplement.

Another problem with my location is that I live near a high-crime metropolitan area, so going out walking by myself in a lot of places (esp after dark) tends to increase stress, lol. Also any nice natural place to hang out at requires driving there, which isn’t always doable. Thanks for all of the suggestions!

i know something else that is a amazingly remarkable supplement too, i think its called marijuana….

Riser's avatar

Have you taken Serene Calm? Because I’ve smoked marijuana – it does not alleviate my stress, so I was offering alternate suggestions.

“Serene Calm” is the name of the supplement by the supplier “Nutrition Plus” but the above from metagenics is the same product.
