What comforts you when your nervous, scared, or stressed? My cat and dog help me feel better, (I have two cats, but only one likes me :P)

My guinea pigs. But most of all, people I know online. Certain people online calm me down and make me feel secure~ x.x

My cat and dogs use to calm me down too ^^ But they're not with me anymore -_-'

Now I like to punch stuff.... sometimes randomly punching walls and making my knuckles bleed xD

Looking at a cloudless sky makes me feel relaxed. Punching stuff, just makes me even more stressed out, and violent.

i pull hairs from my body, pinch my skin till it bleeds and punch pillows. I find that causing pain to myself helps calm myself down, and punching my bed helps tire me out.

PC does, which is why I'm about on every single moment.

Music usually helps. Depending on my mood XD.
The kind of instrument I use varies with my temper. Usually, I tend to lock myself in a soundproof room first out of courtesy to others ^^

Hitting something... that always helps XD

But apart from that, probably nice relaxing music, stroking my cat, lying down on my bed, or even going on the internet. ^_^ Who says the internet is stressful XD

One word. Clair
I just go to my Clair galleries and gaze at the blue crystal beauty and that's enough to relieve stress for a week!

Well it depends on my mood. Sometimes I just go for a drive faraway with my music blasting. Or if it's a minor thing then just sitting alone listening to music helps a lot. Now if it's something major well...it's best if I keep that one to myself -_-

My previous form of stress relief was to smack the first person I saw, usually one of my massive, angry older brothers. I'll quickly realised that wasn't the most ideal thing to do XD. Now I just take a football into the garden and blast it against the wall until the stress drifts away.

I listen to music.

It calms me down, most of the time~

March 15th, 2005, 1:23 PM
I find biting myself in the arm or hitting myself in the forhead relieves me. Preferably the former. I don't handle stress well.

March 15th, 2005, 1:32 PM
Honestly, I dont do anything when I am nervous or scared. ^_^; I sit in one place for a while and sing to myself, and thats about it.

Also, when its nice out in the summer and spring, I go outside and look at the forest, lake, and sky. It makes me feel relaxed. But thats about it~

My comp calms me down. Usually I have a smoke too, and I'll be at 0% then.

I close my eyes and start playing Lugia's Song through my head while I imagine myself flying over the ocean.

March 15th, 2005, 6:24 PM
I usually go onto the internet, or think, or read the Bible. I do these when I'm angry too. >>;

Thinking about something else usually works.
I also like listening to music. It helps me think about something else, and the next thing I know, I'm in my own little world. ^^;

I love imagining and thinking. <3 To relieve of stress, I usually head outside with my pup to skipadoodledoo and hopparoo around or rest in bed thinking. X3; To relieve of anxiety, I listen to calm, serene music and try to solve the problem. To relieve of scaredness, I pause for a long moment in silence. ;-; I'm speechless when scared. To relieve of anger, I head to PC and cry my eyes out. XD

Stress relief eh? Hmm... hmm...
The things that usually relieve stress for me, are anime and music, since they take my mind off everything.
