    A massage from Dr Foofer always works. The Fruitbat always sleeps cuddled next to me and that feels good.

    Weeding the garden relieves stress.

    What is hammerite?

    Hammerite is a paint, for metal, it is very hard wearing and can even be used
    on rusty metal, it has a kind of dimply finish.

    I usually go for a ride on my dirtbike when I'm home, but if I'm in the city I'll usually go for a walk or ride my bike, usually helps clear my head, at least until I get back anyway...haha.

    This link, Young's Modulus, works pretty well for stress over strain.

    Dang it! Again someone beats me to the good joke.:grumpy:

    My comforter is our very expensive bed mattress. After years on cheap foam, we went all out for a high-end Sterns & Foster (or is it a Sealy?). What a difference. We figured if you're gonna spend a third of your life on something, might as well be good quality.

    Ah indeed,the opiates of the masses, me it's a good merlot, and maybe a good lager, but that's a European thing; pre drinking age it was good company, good converstion, or friends: they do help.

    Of course killing things in Half life, or Doom or Quake or Goldeneye, cannot be underestimated, virtual punching bags are great for that time that only an Ar47 or a rail gun or a lightning gun will help.

    Failing that a step out of reality into a good book, be it a classic a pulp fantasy/horror or Sci fi book or a physics text book :tongue2::rofl:

    I have found my favorite comforter in this DELETED SPAM LINK and I am very pleased with it. The problem I have with it is that it must be dried cleaned only an I am not used to this. :grumpy:

    A high-intensity sprint on my bike can relieve me of tension, anxiety, anger, depression, or virtually any other negative emotion. Gotta love endorphins.

    I'm with chroot and scorpa. Exercise is the best stress relief -- especially if it is a daily habit. For me, it's swim-bike-run-motocross-other :biggrin:

    Edit wikipedia, visit physicforums, read some journal article, or play video games if I have them.

    And if I'm really bad:
    sleep.

    For me, it's chilling out with movies from the 1980s. Valley Girl, 16 Candles, Weird Science, Breakfast Club, etc. It's a nostalgia thing.

    Breakfast club rocks.

    Kata is my main relief in winter, but in summer there's nothing like a good swim. I stay under alot; it's more peacefull down there.
