    If I'm short on time, I'll do a few quick jumping jacks to get the blood flowing, take a couple minutes to stretch, or do some slow, focused, deep breathing for a little bit until I feel more relaxed. Or if there's someone around to give you a shoulder rub, that's always nice too!

    I really haven't found any constructive way to deal with extreme stress which actually work for me, so I'll keep my methods to myself. Hopefully other people will give you some good pointers.

    I drink some caffeine - which gives me energy to do other things and ignore the stress (if I need to). Visiting a bookstore - a place that has nothing but soothing, positive associations for me - and reading for a while in a comfy chair is fairly certain to make me feel better. Many times I will work out intensely enough that all I have energy to do is sleep, or blast music loudly enough to make my car vibrate and rock out to it while I drive home. The most important element of what I do is that I take some time for myself, though. Alone.

    If I truly have nothing left to give, I go to certain places - Horsetail Falls, the very top of Larch Mountain - in the middle of the night on a full (or close to) moon if possible and... just be.

    Drive my car to a remote area, turn up the music and scream at the top of my lungs until my throat is hoarse. It's kind of cathartic.

    Crank the music up and dance like a crazy person. Smoke far to much. Say out loud positive thoughts. Lastly, tell myself tomorrow is another day.

    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

    Buy some candy and ice cream, watch some good movies, join chat rooms, bug people on AIM, and play RPGs.

    As for what I do. Normally a weekend focused on Pness does the trick. Currently doing a few more days of Pness.
