    How do you deal with stress? I find going to the gym and spending time outdoors helpful but doesn't seem to be enough.

    Coping with stress either from work or life in general. Looking for alternatives.

    Check your local library's online catalog for books on dealing with stress and anxiety. For example,

    https://www.amazon.com/Anxiety-Phobia-Workbook-Edmund-Bourne/dp/1626252157/

    Our library system here has the books scattered across all of the branches so I rarely bother browsing the shelves any more and instead use the online catalog and then reserve what I find and they send me email when it's arrived.

    Stress is the natural result of life coming at you. It will always be there to an extent. Don't stress because you feel stress. The human animal is programmed to react to danger, even if that danger is just a deadline or an unpleasant boss. If you feel you're over-stressed, start with your doctor and just make sure you don't have anything wrong like a thyroid malfunction of something else. But don't use chemicals to alter your state, no pills, unless it is a chemical imbalance. I found that working out in the early evening helped me by making me want a healthy dinner, reduced my evening drinking, and helped me get a good night's rest. My partner likes aerobic exercise to reduce stress, especially swimming. Some use yoga. Find a healthy way to cope but don't stress over stress!

    Music has been my escape fellow from an early age.
    I guess it always will.

    Why is there always someone here, who has to put his self infantile frustrations from Donald Trump, in any general thread? icon_redface.gif
    Seriously, don't you Democrats suppose to respect the results of a democratic elections?

    Anyway, If all your troubles and harassment in life summons up with Donald Trump, than your life is good.
    Find yourself a hobby...

    Meditation helps with me. I seek out the cause of my stress and temporarily remove it from my mind while I focus on other things that are more productive. By the time I come back to my previous stressor, I'm in a better state of mind and can address it smoothly.
