    Sure, just take it easy and breath, 10 times, slowly, it works.

    Stress, hmm, I had it... drink some herbal tea, take a hot bath, go for a walk near trees, listen to music, dance a bit or just get really wasted, tha helps, at least it helps me.
    But why do you think you are so stressed? any particular situation? mind sharing?

    cheers

    Stress. Not very healthy you know. Well it seems you have surpassed the first step (acknowledging the problem). Next, well, wretched (do I capitalize "w"?) here has some good advise. You definitely want to know what is causing the stress and balance things out. When I get stress I go climb a building at night and watch the stars.

    Ah, watching stars is pretty cool, I do watch them and like to take pics of the moon, that distracts me for sure and makes me think that the universe is so big and I am so tiny and insignificant that no matter how wrong or wretched I feel there is something more out there.

    Not very good ones but here they are:

    stress relieving hmmm...

    wasting time on computer games, music, running and jumping while laughing is good (i'm serious),
    saying extreamly random things on internet chat sites to see the response can incite some degree of fun, esspecialy if friends help.

    thats how one teen relieves stress.

    If you are going thorugh severe stress then it is very unhealthy because from stress a lot of other problems can emerge. Just try to give yourself sometime to relax, and enjoy life happily. I think a good way that can reduce stress sometimes, is through exercising, or just having a walk in the park where you can breath the fresh air. Don't overload yourself with so much work if you are going to be stressed out. Just remember that above all, your health is the most important thing to you, because health cannot be bought with anything. I've also heard from friends that drinking chamomile tea can help you relax when you are stressed out. When its finals week at my school, they always have free tea and stuff for students in the student government service, so maybe that can help. Well, just dont get yourself too crazy or think too much when you are in stress. Yeah, I know that sometimes it is very hard, but I guess no one goes in life without having had experience any stress, but we learn through experience how to cope with it, and Im sure you can also do it.

    What is too bad is that some people live off of it. You do not want to get into this habbit. Be careful with that chamomile, you wouldn't want to fall asleep while taking one of those test. :P In other words I only use chamomile at night.

    Very nice moon pics. How do you take those? Some kind of telescope camera or somthing?

    There are many ways people relieve stress. It ranges from punching bags to nice overly bloody games (which, by the way, actually helps REDUCE crime, save for a few psychopaths that can't tell reality from fiction, but they would have commited murder inevitably anyway), or to quiet relaxing meditation.

    Stress can be generated by a mental reactions to a situations, thoughts, conditions, etc. It's mostly mental perception and objection or tension to a situation that tends to bring on the feeling of "stress" in a lot of people. From those with social anxiety to depression, stress is quite the killer (literally in some cases).

    Since most of you know of a way to relieve stress, and what stress is, as well as everything stated above, I'll move on to something few ever tend to try. Stress PREVENTION through mental perception.
    Different situations cause different reactions, and causes in those situations have mental effects depending on how you preceive things. While one person may find crowds increasingly stress relieving, another may find the same highly stressful. The reasons range from psychological to outright paranormal depending on who you ask.

    Now in stress prevention, you must ask yourself, why be stressed? The answer is very important, as it gives you an idea of what the hell you're thinking. After realizing a general pattern in the WHY area, it's best to move on to attempting to control the perception of that "why" you asked yourself. Turning a situation that's stressful into something you can look at calmly through thought.
    For example, if you were being held up. It's good to remember that normally people robbing others tend to *not* want murder on their hands, since chances of being caught with todays crime system is rather high, as well as chances with being spotted. Thus your survival chances are fairly high right there, and in seeing this your stress level most likely drops as opposed to thinking "GONNA DIE GONNA DIE GONNA DIE!!!!!!!".

    So given the above example, my point is to always mentally weigh the probabilities and observe your own mind in what it thinks. If you can learn how to calculate situations properly and accurately factor in the most probable course of action according to certain factors, you will most likely be able to control the level of stress on your brain. This doesn't work too well for instant-thinking required instances, since weighing all probabilities is rather distracting (and not good if you need full concentration), but in slower situations, this can help quite a lot towards mental control.

    As for stress prevention at work, do as a few above posters said, find something hilarious. Laughter tends to work great at preventing stress, and helps your mind function better due to the lack of it.

    P.S: I just pulled the above out of my ass and I'm fairly tired. I completely welcome opposing ideas. Not opposing insults where posters only half-quote what I write to look like big shots. 'kay? Goody.

    You know Jeremyhfht I say the same thing to people all the time and they just look at me like I'm crazy. People these days tend to think everything they do is controled by genetics (or litereally uncontrollable).

    I am going to go off topic a little but, I think the question was well answered so I hope this is not a problem.

    I would like to take Jeremyhfht's example one step further. By this I am speaking of the idea of changing one's perception. The following is something I have done. FOOD. I eat any and all food. It didn't used to be this way. I used to have allergies and not like certain foods (like most people). You go to someones house and can't eat a meal they serve because of an allergy or maybe you don't like tomatoes and it stops you from enjoying a wonderful salad (that was me). One day I finally decided I was tired of it. I now like all foods. Simply a change in perception. This is just one of many examples.

    People can benefit tremendously from this. Although, I guess that depends on if they believe it works. I told a friend this and not only that but, I am living proof that it works (at least on me) and he still won't do it.

    I think the reason is that a change in perception is like a change in personality, which can be very uncomfortable for some people. Though, I guarantee you, IT IS AWESOME!!

    This idea can most deffinitely be applied to stress. Try to enjoy everything you do. There are still problems that arise such as not enough sleep or over exsertion. In these cases use the techniques listed above or even come up with your own.

    Have fun changing your perception everyone.

    Well, a nice book might help or reading an old paper. I heard watching black and white movies helps too.

    Yes, with the telescope and a digital camera, thanks. Waiting for next full moon, it is relaxing indeed.

    So stress, better if you find the cause and accept it, instead of fighting it back, it only produces more anxiety. When you are so stressed nothing seems to give you peace, but traveling does, it distracts you and keeps you busy, till you forget... making love, pure sex helps as well ...

    The best thing that works for me is talking about the problem with my friends. Just let the problem be. If you go walking around ignoring your stressed feelings it's just going to get worse. Try to relax and think the problem over. If it's just getting worse or if you cant find wat's the problem you'd better make an apointment with a pschychologist (do you write it like this?)

    Hope you'll get better

    is it just me or does the original thread starter seem uninterested due to his utter lack of posting in his own thread?

    maybe that's got something to do with the fact that this topic is started in july. If he would have been depressed al the time h'd probably do something to himself. So ... everybody stil alive?
