    Default Calling All SP's (how do you destress?)

    Lately I've been really stressed out and I have noticed I am cooking and baking everyday. I don't know why its helping me cope but it is! Maybe its because we like working with our hands and creating things? I dont know...

    This week I've already used my crock pot, baked brownies, a coffee cake... Today I want to make a carrot cake. The problem is I live alone and I cant EAT everything. Infact I don't even really like cake but on rare occasion. Lol I don't know what to do with all my excess baked goods. Any ideas?


    Anyways. How do you cope?

    Give away the food.

    I like to move around and do something too. Lying around doing nothing at all helps too. Opposites, but both help, maybe lying around helps me destress more.

    I tend to want to hold on to stress often, part of me likes tension.

    If it's something I can't solve or figure out, I do stuff to get my mind off of whatever's bugging me. The other night I cleaned the whole kitchen, mopped, wiped off all the cabinets and counter tops, did all my roommates' dishes, did a thousand loads of laundry. Like there's all this energy, it just has to go somewhere! Also I like making stuff and exercising or hanging out with fun friends.

    Or else stuff like watching a movie or something.
    Your kisses, sweeter than honey. But guess what, so is my money.

    Anyways. How do you cope?
    It depends on the reason for the stress. If it's stress from lack of control over things, I try to take control over things. I go to stricter schedules and to do lists and exercise and healthier eating. If it's being really busy/ having a lot going on, I try to take more time to myself. Deep breaths, journals, meditation, and nature, baths, stretching, light exercise, reading, and naps. If it's stress related to school, because of the long hours of sitting at a desk and hurting my back without socialization, I call friends, go out, drink, work out, go hiking, get to the beach, whatever. Working out seems to be okay across the board.

    Bad coping habits for me are excessive drinking, excessive coffee, going online too much, not eating, nail biting, partying too much, smoking, talking on the phone too long, spending too much money. These things seem to temporarily fix things but make things worse in the long run!
