What kind of activities have you found help you to unwind, relax, recharge your batteries? Ask people who know you well if they can help you brainstorm as long a list as possible of these types of activities and write it up, keeping a copy of the list handy wherever you are so you can refer to it and follow through on using these activities to de-stress.
One of the simplest stress busters I can think of is to focus on one's breathing and to slow and deepen our breathing. When we are stressed, often our breathing becomes rapid and shallow. There is something very empowering that occurs when we hop in the driver's seat and take control of something such as how we choose to breath.
I often burn up stress with physical outlets...such as "putting it on the 'mill" if I am worked up about something...I walk it off!
HOw about some other ideas out there, folks?
