  37. Take a hot shower and let the room steam up
  38. Go to a favorite restaurant and eat a meal you like
  39. Plan a vacation to a desired destination, one you have always wanted to go to
  40. Stop eating so much sugary stuff. It'll give you the jitters

  42. Stop reading the News Feed on social networking sites
  43. Pick up a hobby you dropped
  44. Drink warm milk
  45. Turn on music and dance like no one else is around but you
Here are some of my stress breakers:
Hug a stuffed animal. Nothing says calm like a big, smushy teddy bear, stuffed dog, alligator or stuffed bulldog


I love big, smushy teddy bears. they have to be really fuzzy though

I have one just like this at home. I thought it was an Australian dingo, nope. It's an African Wild Dog. I still call it a dingo; I even named it something Australian: Hugh, after an actor I like

I have one like this too

Aww, pugs!!

-Watch a funny movie or TV show. For me, watching Mr. Bean, Wallace and Gromit or Monty Python and the Holy Grail always does it in for me. By the end, my eyes are watering I'm laughing so hard!

-Listen to music. My recommendation: Like I said up above, R&B, jazz, soul, Spanish guitar, Latin, Oriental flute music, or just any kind of Asian music in general usually does perfect.
Seal. My "go-to" guy for R&B
-Play video games. Play something like Just Dance Summer Party, Just Dance 2 or some kind of motion game for the Wii system if you have it. If you're up and moving, you'll relax by burning out that stress through sweating!!
-Read a book you like. Since I read virtually every book I own, that one is out, lmao!!!
