You can't avoid pain by fencing yourself from it.
Some times you need the help of others more than anything else
But you have to let them close enough to help......

FF, we all know that what you blow has nothing to do with san andreas

We are the music makers, We are the dreamers of dreams,
Wandering by lone sea-breakers, And sitting by desolate streams;
World-losers and world-forsakers, On whom the pale moon gleams;
We are the movers and shakers of the world for ever, it seems.

Very true, Vixen.

Also, try writing what you are stressed about in a journal. It often helps just to get the stressful event out in the open; then, you can figure out how to get a handle on it.

I've been known to curl up with a good book or pull out my sewing machine and start making something. If you are in a time crunch (i.e. you are stressed because you left writing a paper until the last minute), try forming an outline of the important steps you need to get done, and take joy in crossing them off one by one as you get stuff done.

Poi is the ultimate stress relief for me. Just simple stuff, moving around inside the weaves, windmills and stuff... easy flow. So calming.

That's why I do poi primarily, to escape from stress!

kissings good if you have somone to kiss

i find writing typing talking are pretty good too even if it is complete nonsense you will feel better getting it out. it might reaveal things you didnt realise you are worried or stressed about lol and you can figure out what to do about them.

i am studying illustration, so i am always thinking through my pen and paper.

the first thing i do when i realise i'm stressed is try to slow down my breathing. If we breathe like we're being chased by a lion, our bodies release adrenalin, our heartbeat increased, etc. which is great if you're being chased by a lion, but not cool if you're just wound up.

i also like writing, cos it clears things up in my head, and lets me see what's really bothering me. Puts things into perspective.

A nice cuppa tea...

...hahaha, only joking. If you were to get scientific about it I would say do some exercise as it releases endorphins into the blood which make you happy.
But if im super stressed I find it good just to whack some music on and lie on my back and just think about stuff shrug

Watching something funny on TV will do it too! biggrin

mmm stress. what a horrible affair. poi is definitely a destressifier for me i found out yesterday, i honestly didnt think i liked it as much as staff but it is most definitely calming. and the more i learn the more i love..

also like writing and talking and if youre mega stressed i find going for a walk and clearing your head works too.... but yeah bowage to the poi-ey goodness.
