  • good tips my faith in God is a big stress reliever. Other tips I use are pilates, deep breathing green tea melts stress and it is good for you to boot. - 3/15/2012 5:21:47 PM
  • Great info! The tips are simple, I enjoy exercising, watching comedy. Because when I am stressed I always like a good laugh. I also play with my kids, and prayer and meditation is my daily stress relief practice. - 1/24/2012 5:23:06 PM

    In the list of articles linked to this one there's one titled "De-Stress in 3 Minutes or Less" and another elsewhere on Sparkpeople titled "10 Ways to De-Stress in 5 Minutes or Less". These both seem like they'd be of use to those looking for super quick at-the-desk solutions, like those concerned with stress eating or smoking. Hope it helps! - 12/12/2011 11:57:27 AM
  • The best way for me to beat stress is to take my worries and concerns to the Lord in prayer. When I remember that I have a God who created me, who forgives my sins for Jesus' sake and who promises to love and be with me always, the stresses of this life begin to melt away and His peace and joy fill my heart. - 12/10/2011 3:09:35 PM
  • Sorry I didn't realize others were of the same mind!! - 12/9/2011 9:13:48 PM
  • Where is petting your cat?? - 12/9/2011 9:12:38 PM
  • Walking has gotten me through a lot of tough times. There is something so peaceful about walking through the tress along the river valley that can take your mind off of things. You set the pace so it can be a leisurely stroll taking in the beauty in nature or a quicker walk or jog to pound out some frustration. - 11/23/2011 12:08:53 PM
  • Apparently my computer is stressed. Didn't mean to double post! - 10/1/2011 4:36:59 AM
  • I have a sticker that reads "Who needs a therapist,,,I have my dog!" Whether cuddling on the sofa, going for a walk or training a trick, they can always make me laugh & relax. Pets, a long walk, good music, a warm bath and maybe chocolate. Yeah! - 10/1/2011 4:35:21 AM

  • Sometimes, I go to my room, pull the door, flop down in the middle of my king-sized bed, and read for a few minutes. It's only five or ten minutes, usually, but by the time I have to put away whatever book I'm reading, I've successfully floated away to another world for at least a few of them! :) - 8/17/2011 1:03:30 AM
  • I agree with Nelliec, HUG YOUR PET! That always works for me! I will laydown with my babies (3 Chihuahua's and 1 Rat Terrier) and take a nap. Naps are my way "out".....xoxo

  • You forgot one of the most important stress-busters -- hug your pet! - 7/22/2011 11:31:27 AM
  • I have to call a friend and share the feelings. Talking it through helps. Also, I play piano and if I am able to get my hands on the keys, that is terrific. Cleaning out a drawer in my kitchen (or office) will help that too! - 7/3/2011 8:39:28 AM

    These are great stress busters, but as stress eaters will attest, we eat when we're stressed because we can do it while working on that deadline when we don't have TIME to take a walk or a bath or sit and write a journal entry.

    What this article needs are the stress busters that take a few minutes or less, like listening to the song that makes you feel like it's summer or standing up and stretching--really stretching--or taking time out to brew and breathe deep a cup of herbal mint tea.

    Any others from you de stressers out there? - 3/20/2011 12:49:01 PM
