    Well thank you. I can see that this is gonna be quite hard to do though. No bathtub, no local friends (cept for my roomie. But he is laaaazy. ISFPs. ). I am slowly starting to think that I should get a bathtub, since everybody tells me to take one.

    What I can do though, is listening to music while I shower. And I always do that. That's always kinda nice.
    Other then that I go and watch some DVD or movies sometimes (on tv). Oh and playing with consoles of course. Though, stuff like Trauma Center or so is probably not the best thing to play when you are stressed.

    Yeah get a bath-tub. A good book. A favourite snack or glass of wine. Maybe some dark chocolate. Light some candles. Relax away from the world for an hour (adding hot water as needed).

    yes! listen to this man he knows the truth. nothing more relaxing then a hot bath a glass of red wine and a book.and the fact you get to be naked is a bonus, if you smoke weed smoke a bowl before getting in I know people who smoke in the bath but I always manage to get it wet.
    In no likes experiment.

    How about - until then - I just take some company to the shower. Would that work too? =P

    oh yeah, granola bars could work. I ended up thinking of a simple way to make some last night. Just honey and rolled oats, mix it together and put it on a baking sheet then toss that into the fridge.

    When I need to deal with stress I tend to take walks. The problem with that is I end up taking walks that go for hours, so if you have a bunch of things that need to be done it be comes kind of useless. I've been trying to pray more, but that takes a certain amount of discipline that I don't have enough of yet.
    Dreams are best served manifest and tangible.

    I accept no responsibility, what so ever, for the fact that I exist; I do, however, accept full responsibility for what I do while I exist.

    Yeah, walks. I used to do that, but the problem is what you say: you might end up being out there longer than expected; then you "waste" time and you are all stressed again. :rolleyes2:

    There is an odd thing I noticed during the past 2 days though. Seems that working is relaxing for me. If you think about it, it's even logic: if I work, I don't have a nasty guilt feeling. So no guilt, no stress.

    That's good then. Yes, you do tend to feel better once you feel like you've taken the first steps in starting something. It's that pressure to start that's the worst.

    Some other stress relieving things: sitting somewhere cozy and reading, naps, watching fish (oddly enough), working with your hands (could be as simple as playing with play dough or something), sitting down and writing out a mock schedule for your work load (part of the "getting started" thing), and watching the stars.

    Actually I had no problems to start something. It is more that I couldn't as in "there was nothing to do". That drives me nuts sometimes.

    Funny that you mention that. Because that is what I have been doing the past days. I have a job where I make custom stuff, so I have to work with poly clay etc a lot.
    Oh and thanks for your other tips, they are great.
