    How do you deal with stress?

    Within the past year, I've undertaken a new job. This new job is one that is highly stressful - unlike any other job I've ever had. The only thing that keeps me there, is the fact that I absolutely love what I do (human services type of job working with developmentally disabled adults).

    Nevertheless, I find myself not handling the stress very well.

    I exercise regularly, but I still notice the stress taking a toll on my 'peace of mind' (so to speak).

    So what I'd like to ask of the people here - what do you do to de-stress?
    Fool me once, shame on you.
    Fool me twice....shame on me.

    Re: How do you deal with stress?

    I tend to focus on my hobbies if I am stressed out. Also, I am good at compartmentalizing and leave stress in the situation (work stays at work) when I leave that situation.

    Hobbies include:
    Learning about computers/computing
    Minecraft (a game which is basically an adult version of legos)
    Sex
    Learning about all sorts of stuff

    Re: How do you deal with stress?

    I read a book with music playing really loud, completely block out the world for a while, or I just ignore what's causing me stress until I have to face it, which is probably the less psychologically healthy option. And masturbation helps.

    I build things and play video games. This weekend I built a doghouse for our great pyrenees

    Yes, but how much is too much?


    I used to refinish antique furniture.. but that's gone by the wayside after working 50-60hrs/week. I need to probably cut back on hours, but wow... I can't imagine trying to get everything done in 40 hours a week. I need a place to do a primal scream.

    No such thing as too much.

    The masturbation should help with that.



    The only time that would be true was in the case of actual sex.. with a person!

    Re: How do you deal with stress?

    This morning I am cleaning to relieve stress. I can also read, play computer games, visit friends/family, and spend time here on the boards.
