Is'nt choking a chicken, spanking monkeys etc the best remedy?
A cup of hot tea, a cuddle and some peace and quiet are what's best imho.
There are various reasons behind stress and first we have to sort out reason behind it. A stress management course may help but its effects are short term. I would rather prefer a head massage from my wife to get rid of stress and anxiety.
A nice hot bath and a film in bed always works for me
I personally like isolation. When I get rid of everyone and everything around me (not always possible especially when you have kids) I always feel so much better and relaxed. Pets work nice too, for whatever reason, just having a dog or a cat on my lap to pet and talk to really does the trick sometimes too.
The truth IS out there! We just tend to look in all the wrong places.
When I shower thats the place I get rid of stress. Probably because I'm alone.
Can you see past your belief systems?
