Lately i've felt like this more than I care to admit. It's certainly one outlet albeit unproductive, but I prefer to use the following to channel my frustation and ease anxiety: Meditation Yoga Hiking through the woods Cooking Needlepoint Driving very fast (an inevitably expensive outlet) Drafting Designing products or spaces Exploring new places Contemplation Walking and playing with my pooch. Reading Painting Drawing Writing Calligraphy Good conversation with friends Gardening (mostly indoor now) Refinishing furniture, something I haven't done in a while and miss terribly. Sex, whenever possible I want to add to this list. I'm in a place where many of these outlets are not working for me at the moment. I need fresh ideas. I'm thinking of joining a group that views movies on a regular basis and discusses them. Feeling a little claustrophobic, the need for fresh air, scenery, tension release, clarity, and my blood coursing faster through my veins, i've been walking and hiking more. What do you do to relax and ease the tension?
