We have had alot going on as well and I am fairly anxious to begin with. I work out... It helps me. I do some intense cardio about 4x a week and then 1 yoga/stretching class.

Sometimes at home, I listen to Asian music , instrumental and it helps with the deep breathing exercises they teach in yoga or Body Flow classes. I use to feel foolish sitting on my bedroom floor doing this, but it works! You have to do what you have to do...

Reporting in--I'm feeling much, much better. Holidays over and things are looking up and I've been doing some things to help.

Excercising, playing guitar, listening to music and smoking cannabis. Just going for a ride down backroads and getting lost is great too. I only recommend doing this with a fuel efficient vehicle though.

I like to have a "Me" day or "Me weekend" where I literally do whatever I want with the intent of just taking it easy. Usually it involves movies, tv, video games, pajamas, drums, some form of takeout or cooking for myself, etc. Unfortunately I don't have a whole lot of time for these types of days though.

Spending time with my girlfriend, regardless of what we do, is always a stress reliever.

I work out - some cardio and weights, and hitting the heavy bag.

Cleaning the house or doing an art project. I paint, draw, and work with polymer clay. Concentrating on the end result helps me sort of forget what's bothering me.

Video games. Humorous books, videos, whatever.

Being around animals and plants. Reminding myself that there's much more to this world than us humans and the havoc we cause.

Ambient music and lavender scent.

Playing pool with a good friend, where the game is secondary and a good convo is primary.

OK, checking in again and this time I have a further question--what do you do when everyone is stressing out together and at each other's throat? Not me, I'm the peacemaker in the family but have everyone mad at me anyway. Found out mom has extensive cancer and won't live much longer so I contacted my nephew, against my brother's wishes, to tell him, b/c I don't think it's right not to. Mom raised him so I think it would be an unforgivable oversight not to tell him but my bro and his wife are ready to strangle me and I'm stressing again. It's true he's been a little turd in the past but most of that was over 5 years ago and since my sis did a crappy job raising him and then abandoned him at 8, it's not all his fault.
