Well, of course, I'll pop a nicotine lozenge in or I'll read, listen to music, or go to another part of the house and clean. :)

When I am stressed, I try to calm myself down by writing my emotions. And then I divert my mind by listening to music or reading books.

So I am a stay-at-home mom of a pretty (and sassy) 18 month old little girl. Additionally, I have 2 big dogs who are not quite grown out of the puppy stage, a demanding cat, and a 150 gallon aquarium of chichlids. Oh, and I'm 37 weeks pregnant.

My husband works 10 hours/day, so you could say I have my share of stress. When I'm really feeling the frustration building, I go to the bathroom, (or my room, where ever I can escape) sit down, and take 5 deep breaths. Literally it helps. I practice yoga and the breathing is the most cleansing part.

I bump some old school rap, get out and go for a walk.
The strongest impetus a man will ever have, in an individual sense, will come from a woman he admires.

I clean like a madman. Neither nook nor cranny is safe from my scrub brush.

When I am stress, there is nothing I will love to do than sleep.
”Are you still mad at me?"
"Yes."
"I'll go back to sleep, then."
"Good.”
