Art :) It definitely calms me. Also prayer, music and dancing, the gym, a hot shower, and watching bad reality TV, lol. Those are my go-to stress relievers!

I find that cleaning up my room, reading, playing video games, watching YouTube videos, baking, and hanging out with close friends are ways to help me to reduce my stress levels. Exercise can vary for me, but I would like to make this method more dominant in my life because it's healthier.

When I am stressed, I usually will turn on the radio, crank the music up as loud as it can go, and just rock out! Five Finger Death Punch always gets me in a better mood!

In high school I used to write my thoughts down on pieces of paper in class, then tear them out so no one else would read them. These days I turn to music more for stress relief. Chocolate also helps. :lol:

When I am stressed I clean, trying to put my nervous energy into something productive. Or I listen to country music and finally start to relax again.

I am just grateful that I am inclined to do many things that help me get rid of stress. One of them is watching an anime series.

Music or writing really helps me out. I listen to my favorite bands on repeat because focusing on the words helps some everything out. And I write out my feelings because that helps more than talking to someone.

I want to be alone when i'm stressed out. I go out for a walk or sit in my room and listen to music.
