    This particular post doesn't have anything to do with philosophies or sciences, I just had a question for you all...

    If you are really stressed out, what do you do? Do lash out or calm down? Do you do anything at all?

    Aye. Stress management. Sometimes it just creeps up and you may not even realize until you're in the thick of it. A long walk/run is really helpful for me. Breathing and being alone is important. I feel so much better after lying in bed and putting my feet up raised above heart level for good circulation.

    As for preventative, I try to identify the source of my stress as soon as it arises. Sometimes simply addressing it, acknowledging it and dealing with it immediately (if possible) alleviates time otherwise spent dwelling. I've noticed that even a very trivial issue can a send a wave of uneasiness over me that lingers if I become preoccupied with other things. Just the simple act of confronting it and coming to terms with it can make a huge difference.

    So what happens when you can't confront it? You want to, but it's just not possible for a while? I like the walk/run idea though... I've been biking a lot and that's been getting me less stressed. Thanks!

    Oh that really is annoying. I see what you're saying...when you don't have the option to immediately deal with the source of stress. Perhaps this?

    Thanks for that! It's a good tip.
