Thank you for sharing this awesome list! It comes at a time when I really need it and could benefit from it. I've already done a few things on this list. There's so many more good things on this list to do and try!

Instead of reaching for food when you are stressed or emotional, try one of these great ideas! Remember “stressed” is “desserts” spelled backwards! 1. Organize yourself, figure out exactly what to do and execute a strategy for getting things done. If you are not good at this, ask a friend who is good at this stuff to help you. 2. Take a bath 3. Go for a walk 4. Go to the gym 5. Pray or Meditate 6. Drink tea 7. Call a friend and talk out what is going on with you. 8. Write in your journal/blog 9. Stretch or do yoga 10. Zone out and watch a movie that you like 11. Curl up with a good book 12. Take your dog for a walk, or pet your cat if you have one 13. Clean your house 14. Do some volunteer work– get out of your head by helping some other people out. Serve food at a soup kitchen, volunteer to play with kids at a homeless shelter, walk dogs or play with cats at the local animal shelter. 15. Buy a meal for a homeless person in your neighborhood and bring it to them 16. Call someone you haven’t spoken to in a long time 17. Call a much older relative or friend. The advice of people older than you with so much more life experience can be incredibly valuable. 18. Listen to music that you can lose yourself in 19. Get out of your apartment or house and be out in the world with people, don’t isolate 20. Draw, paint, do something artistic 21. Walk around the block then attack your to do list. 22. Promise yourself a non-food reward for everything you cross off your list, such as 10 minutes to zone out on the internet. 23. Get a massage 24. Take a shower 25. Water your plants 26. Find something to break, like sticks or branches you find outdoors. Rip up an old tee-shirt. Anything that can feel cathartic and release some tension. Just don’t hurt anyone. 27. Relax your jaw. Your jaw is the strongest muscle in your body and because of that, you hold a lot of stress in it. Massage your jaw muscles and try to relax them. 28. Cry 29. Scream into a pillow 30. Dance 31. Go to a spin class, kickboxing class, or to the boxing gym– something that exerts energy 32. Go for a drive through a neighborhood that you like 33. Go out to a movie 34. Smell flowers 35. Color hard with crayons– releases stress 36. Garden 37. Go to the beach and look at the ocean 38. Think about people you love, call them, tell them your woes or don’t tell them your woes, just connecting can be healing 39. Paint your toenails 40. Window shop 41. Play a musical instrument 42. Make Love 43. Write or read affirmations. 44. Give yourself a foot massage 45. Go for a good run! 46. Write kind notes or emails to people for no reason 47. Walk outside and smile at 10 strangers 48. Write a letter to God. 49. Slowly inhale to the count of 5 then exhale to the count of 5. Do this for 5 minutes. 50. Let it go.
