    How do you cope with stress?

    I have a number of things I can turn to. In no particular order they include family, friends, beer, and athletic pursuits.

    "If your worried about falling off the bike, you'd never get on" Lance Armstrong

    Re: How do you cope with stress?

    Playing guitar or listening to music. I'll go on runs if I get really stressed, or take a shower if it's a late night and I still have work to do.

    Re: How do you cope with stress?

    1)Hit the gym
    2)Listen to music
    3)Watch a comedy
    4)Talk with friends/family (I really don't like bothering other people with my problems)


    At one time eating and drinking would have been on my list but too much of that lead to #1 on my list.

    Re: How do you cope with stress?

    I find that if I remember to talk to God first to get my priorities straight, the stress relievers are much more productive.

    Re: How do you cope with stress?

    I tend to not let anything get to me so much that it causes stress... If that doesn't work I break things...
