nice tips! sadly but usually people use get drunk (or smoked) and that's it. but you forget about some pretty powerful and healthy way to beat stress- sex

Sleeping,shopping,music and bath work for me.

My best way to relieve stress is to go shopping, and try on a ton of clothes, find great bargains, get a yummy snack, and call it a day. Not only it gets my mind off everything else,it really makes me tired, so I have no problem falling and staying asleep....at least that day.

Haha you're right about the sex, Ave. But do people really need a step-by-step guide to have sex? :D

It is very nice & helpful to the person who really wants to reduce their weight & to be confident women - SM

Going to the mall to get tired sometimes works for me. But other times, I just get sad because I stop myself from buying things I cannot afford or don't need. :(

The bath in your top photo looks very relaxing. I love to write when I'm feeling stressed, especially poetry.
