Stressed spelled backwards is desserts. How do you unwind? De-stress?

These days I work at not getting stressed to start with, but spending time with my family and watching the grands have fun is a great stress reliever - I also like to sit and sew.

Go to my sewing room and try to create things, or sit with my dogs. They are de-stressers.

Sewing and yoga--but not usually at the same time! :)

My favorite de-stressor is chocolate! However my family says they cannot handle the stress of the crash that comes after the sugar high. :icon_evil:
So the next best thing to chocolate is my sewing machine and a quilt to piece together. (It is also the best place to beat the heat as my sewing room is in the basement.)

I cuddle my son, ride bicycles, do metalworking in my shop or go play in the garden.

I find that a Lindt Dark Chocolate with Sea Salt candy bar will help..........at least that's what I tell myself! :D

I avoid thinking about work! Preferably sewing of course, if i am too tired then drinking coffee and then hopefully being able to sew!

Since January of 2013 when I had a silent heart attack at work, and subsequently retiring I try not to let myself get stressed. Usually if I get stressed I get really sleepy and either lay back in my recliner or go to bed and take a nap. Naps are good!

I can't drive,so if I can find a girl friend that has the time I like to go get a cup of coffee and dessert so we can talk.

Beethoven cello sonatas usually do the trick - turned up loudly. Or a trio or two.

Sewing or reading are great stress reducers!

80978 Bob's naps sound good...then one has to wonder about being depressed ! Hmmm

Did you know there is a book entitled, "Stressed Is Desserts Spelled Backward," by Brain Luke Seaward, Ph.D. He's a Colorado man. I heard him speak at a nursing seminar. JCY
