It seems like I make oodles of threads like this, and hardly get any response, but it's kinda interesting... So, yeah!

Are there any things you do to relax or reduce stress? Conscious things, things you may not realize you do? Anything?

Personally, I visualize smoking (usually while exhaling slowly like I'm blowing out smoke) or kissing. That helps me a lot. Probably because they're simple, enjoyable things that are deeply rooted in a lot of cultures.

What about you?

EDIT: Masturbating does count as an answer, but only if you're being serious, not just saying it.

Being viciously sodomized by my three Uncles in a scary closet.
They made me do push ups in drag

Running outside with only your iPod as comfort. It's the only thing which helps me relieve stress. I'm off for a run now. Nite!

I generally don't get angry to the point where I need to vent, but when I DO get angry, I attack my mattress/pillow, claw my forearms, "GAAAAAAAH" and when in possession of my guitar perform horribly Kerry King-esque divebombs.

...and before anyone asks, yes I am horribly immature for 16. xD

Breath. Heavily. I've been trying to get in a habit of breathing more. Sounds stupid, but the average person only uses around 30% of their total lung space when breathing. Putting more oxygen in your blood helps you concentrate, keeps you awake and is generally healthy for you. When I remember about it, I just take in breaths that completely fill my lungs and do that for about ten minutes.

Fascinating. Do you know where I could find out more about this?

I'm interested in beginning tratak meditation. It's supposed to help concentration and focus (along with some spiritual/psychic stuff, but IMO that aspect is bullshit). It does seem like a very relaxing practice though. Plus I've had several psychologists recommend meditation but I never did it so I wanna give it a shot.

Guitar. Acoustic guitar especially. That always calms me down. Unless I play horribly. Then I just get madder

Turn your music on full blast, furiously play air drums. Works like a charm.
Just a sub-par guitar player..

This pretty much works the best as I do that all the time while doing homework.

-Jacking off or furiously banging the shit out of a lady. I'm talking like when you gotta go on the couch or floor beacuse you feel like the bed is going to collapse.
-Listen to ambient music in the dark and make my mind stop thinking.
-Go to the shooting range with my sig, or rent some cool gun.
-riding my motorcycle, even when I commute to work on it just doing that relaxes me from whatever bugged me at work.
-guitar and bass playing.

A cup of tea and some music. Making a small fire for cooking some meat or marshmallows is always nice too. And going for long drives through the mountains. And hiking.

Watching thismusic video put me in a really good mood. It about the trippiest thing I've watched.

On the breathing topic, breathing in through your nose and out your mouth gets oxygen in and out faster. Really relaxing on shitty days.

masturbating, drinking, thinking of the girl i love, putting some trippy/slow/melodic music with some high singing, smoking weed, being naked andin bed, breathing, sleeping, not doing anything, walking around town with no place to be, watching random people on the streets, + more.

Laying down outside and stargazing, if the sky isn't ridiculously light polluted. That calms me down quite a bit, especially when I play some acoustic guitar or listen to just the right music when doing it.
Oh f*ck it,
I'm gonna have a party.
