    Hi. So I'm kind of getting stressed between papers and tests and work. So I'm wondering: what do you guys do to relieve stress?

    I listen to some trance music or something and throw a ball against a wall.

    I hear you, just went through three midterms myself. To be honest, music, games, and tv. I just wrote my last midterm today and I feel so much better.

    Physical activity is always good. I personally like running so just getting out in a place where I can run full on until I just have to catch my breath is something that helps me. I also find that turning on Just Dance and choosing a couple of songs that are marked with a lot of sweat drops can get me worn out and can burn off a lot of stress.

    It sounds kinda silly but being physically tired for a moment and then taking another moment to cool down can be a LOT better than just staying mentally tired and stressed out.

    Listen to music, play video games, or go on sites that aren't here. Usually Facebook.

    Fighting games always relieve stress for me.

    Oh, and programming .. I love programming a bit to relax.

    (of course that'll stress a lot of people out worse so maybe not for you.)

    I do a number of things to relief stress, most of the time though I just listen to my music and go for a quick walk/jog/run around the block a few times.

    Play some tennis. Nothing relieves stress better than sending a fuzzy yellow ball over the net at 100mph on a serve.

    Yeah, you seem to really enjoy it. I watch you all the tim... huh? Sup?


    Anyways, take a break. I mean when I get stressed (to be honest I have no idea what the fuck is causing me to get stressed), I just browse YouTube, or play some games that I know that won't get me going. Before I would smoke cigarettes or pot, but I gave both of those up. Draw maybe? Come up with random doodles? Or make your own mazes and then try to solve them or just make trippy pictures. Pretty much how I spent majority of my high school career.
