What are your methods of destressing?

Play guitar?
Drink hot tea?
Meditate?
Exercise?
Video games?
Movies?
Hard core street drugs?

Other stuff?

Re: What are your methods of destressing?

Exercise. My daily cardio/weight routine during lunch break does wonders for my state of well being. The results are immediate.

Re: What are your methods of destressing?

Too many things to note really; my entire living moment is spent removing as much stress and unhappiness as possible. Life is suffering, and for me, it's about removing as much suffering as possible.

A few things in my routine:

- playing with myself
- playing very low tempo guitar
- drinking earl grey
- eating curries
- drinking alcohol
- listening to certain types of music
- reading
- purchase power and retail therapy [buying stuff]
- watching football
- making sure I've had enough sleep

Re: What are your methods of destressing?

Boozing and playing old video games. I gotta cut back on the drinking (which I took two weeks off of work at the end of the month to dry out and quit smoking cigarettes) And I think I'll replace that with cardio (once I get my lung function back..light cardio at first!) and cooking food that's good for me, as opposed to ordering a pizza and wings 2-3 nights a week.

Gear is stress.

I swear the gods of guitar work towards having as little of their playing/tone to do with equipment. It's like, it's there, it exists, but trying to forget it is the task.

Ultimately with gear - you're trying to create something that doesn't embody a anything physical. [sound waves creating emotions that need not know how].

Re: What are your methods of destressing?

Gardening... I'm roasting sweet potatoes right this instant to go with a pork tenderloin (pan roasted with garlic, lemon and rosemary) - our 3 little plants turned up 25lbs of 'em. It was like Christmas as a child digging in the dirt.. then I was like, holy shit this is a lot or potatoes.

Also roasting a whole head of cauliflower.. You've never tasted cauliflower until you've tried this.

Just butter and salt but it's the technique that is key... The blog I linked too gives more details. I went from thinking cauliflower was 'meh' to holy shit this is amazing. it's the basting while browning that is key.

Didn't even see the link. I love cauliflower, but for some odd reason I don't seem to eat it much. Broccoli on the other hand I can't get enough of.

I'll try it roasted.
