    Re: How do you deal with stress?

    I pray and look towards the future. I can handle stressful situations and an intense workload very well. It's when it's all said and done that I crash. When I crash I turn to God and focus on my future in the medical field and to achieve my dream of becoming a clinical pharmacist specializing in oncology.

    I do martial arts, cook, listen to music, but the best insta-calm I have is the Hagakure. If I need something to instantly calm me down, I pick it up and read a few pages of it.

    I light a candle (usually vanilla), turn on a relaxing CD (usually Native American instumental), strip down and climb into a piping hot bubble bath. I completely clear my head of all thoughts and just let it all go.

    I know what doesn't work. What doesn't work is trying to read through post #11. Stressed as hell now. Going to bed.

    The best stress relief is a game of backyard football. Beyond that, debating politics works well for me outside of election seasons. Praying helps too, but only if you know God personally. Otherwise I would imagine that would only create even more angst.
    Get informed: UNICEF foreign adoption policy is killing orphans and the US gives $132 million to UNICEF every year. Stop the madness.

    Re: How do you deal with stress?

    I rarely stress, but when I do I'm not very aware of it but the onset is shoulder and middle back pain where the ribs meet the spine. I bust a theanine capsule or two and it tends to melt away. Good metal is a great outlet for stress, it used to rile me up more but now I just roll with the evil and I float away. Whacksturbation also werks. Warcraft stresses me out, it's a little like a second job.
