So, how do you all deal with stress, huh? If you pick "other" than explain. Discussion is welcome, but keep it friendly, guys. I know a few of you are gonna be rowdy after this night (St. Paddy's Day).


NOTE: poll itself will be up shortly

I bottle it up and take pills.


Seriously.

I usually get insanely depressed somewhere in the process.

Get the most important things out of the way early, NEVER leave things for later, do them when you have the chance to get them out of the way, and be sure to take the occasional break to just relax and wind down a bit. (By not leaving things for later I mean don't let all the work pile up until the very last possible minute to complete it, or else you'll have a ****load of work to do with nearly no time to do it. This is a huge cause of stress.)

EDIT: Masturbation is a also a huge stress reliever as mentioned above...even though it was probably intended as a joke. Tests were taken and showed that having an orgasm actually lowers your stress horomone levels.

Personally, I swear loudly if no one's around, just to get it outta me. I then end up either hitting something if i'm outta my mind with stress, or i just play guitar.

I feel retarded for not putting that in there, especially taking into account the fact that this IS the Pit we're talking about.

smoke pot, meditate, and then realize none of it matters.

i know an old lady who supports abortion because it's generally low-class black women getting it performed and for her the less inner-city black kids (or blacks in general) there are, the better.

Oh Damn

i dont let things get to me, there are very few things in life that matter enough to actually get to you. i avoid HS drama entirely because its rediculoulsy stupid, that pretty much keeps me out of any situations where i can get wrapped up and stressed
#17
This sounds wierd, but each to his own...

I take a flight on flight simulator. Its a simple relaxing thing and inherently peaceful.

Playing guitar and Other. Other being masturbating of course.

Sometimes Ill just sit there and breathe deeply and just sort of imagine the whole universe and how huge it is and everything and I can like FEEL the relaxation hormones pumping through my body. I'm not even sure if relaxation hormones are real, but I would imagine they are.
#20
I just get over it. Like, this last english project I did, our group (including me) started to freak out as the deadline closed in. I don't know why but I just got really nervous. So for about a day I was like AHH! But, after that I stopped caring and just did the project no sweat. Stress only hits me for a day or so, then I'm fine.

I used to punch stuff. Then I punched a hole in my wall and I was nearly disowned for it. Now I play guitar AND I sit and do NOTHING. It's actually very calming. I wouldn't call it meditating, just kinda relaxing.
#22
walk my dog at 3 in the morning, its very relaxing, also just thinking/ focusing on something thats not stressful

Punch things, swear, start arguments, but other than that, if I'm home or driving, I just crank up the music. If I'm at home I turn out all the lights. It's calming.

2.) Go stick on some Dimmu Borgir/Cradle of Filth/Trivium/Metallica/Slayer/Anthrax/Pantera and drum out all my anger

or

3.) Go lift weights, i've found that i can lift way more when im pissed off. Helps alot during my Weight Training and Conditioning class

Do you turn green and muscular as well?

Well, it depends what I'm stressed by.

If it's something academic, I usually procrastinate until I literally HAVE to deal with it.

Example: Science project due April 1st, yet I won't start until a week or so before it's due. See what I mean?

If the stress comes from something recreational, like sports or video games (sometimes Xbox Live really gets to you), swearing loudly does wonders.
It's difficult to win unless you're bored.
