    Hi! Chronic stress is a great problem for many of us. Could you share your ways of dealing with it? I'll start from examples of movies on living closed to nature, vacation and bushcraft from Europe and Asia with info where to look for it on YouTube:

    I need at least one trip a year to the mountains. I get a lot of peace being there. But chronic stress has to be battled daily - meditation, rest, doing the right thing and having peace of mind.

    This is where I go.

    Thank you for your comment with wise statements and beautiful picture. I share your opinion that chronic stress has to be battled each day. It affects many aspects of life. Stress should not lead us or weaken us. It can only stimulate to act if necessary.

    Irrational fears, unrealistic expectations, internal diatribes,
    and a prescription to klonopin.

    Put into the heart of the matter. We often need time to notice and understand it before it affects us negatively.

    Extremely loud music and cannabis.

    If there's no cannabis, just make sure the music is loud enough to feel in my bones.

    I can imagine. Have a good Sunday - not like the rest of the week.

    Exercise is the number one way to combat any kind of emotional issue, whether it be stress, depression, anxiety, etc... it’s not a popular option, but it’s the best.

    Sadly, I just have to deal with it as it comes up. My morning commute can take over 2 hours if there is bad traffic. I just have to deal with it. I have a job that takes me to multiple locations throughout the city; and each location has its own President, VPS, Directors and Chairs. Each of then think their work is top priority.

    I have found ways to harness the stress, to get the various tasks done. I am sure there are some health risks; but so far so good. This covers Monday Through Friday. Weekends I unwind by shopping, cleaning, fixing and building things. I guess this is stress relief . I also guess LPSG; and a few really great members helped to control any extra stress over the past few years

    My home is wherever reality seems elastic and the
    I do a number of things. Be in the water, whether exercise or lounging. Sleep. Watch shows or movies (I like horror, crime, mystery). Meditate. Read. Cuddle with my cat fam. Clean, when I'm up for it. Cleaning my environment really does make me feel better when I'm not too depressed to clean. But the biggest thing is compartmentalizing everything. Focus on the task at hand and forget about finances, or grief, or relationships sadness.

    I don't take any medication now but used to be on all kinds. That helped until it didn't. My main problem relating to stress was clinical OCD, and I took Prozac first and then Anafranil for a long time.

    Now I just obsessively arrange my space and God help ya if you fuck it up

    I agree with your statements and practice them. I also share the opinion given by Enid that 'the biggest thing is compartmentalizing everything'. This needs to be emphasized here once again thinking about the mental attitude to our various activities.

    My stress is episodic--I'll be cruising along just fine until something goes wrong and I'll psychologically make like a turtle for a while. Maybe I get over it in an hour, maybe it takes overnight. And then I'll calm down until it pops into my head again. At which time I talk myself back down.

    I use a lot of self-talk, inner dialogues. I tried doing daily 3 minute meditations, (supposedly you only need 3 minutes a day) but couldn't sit still and calm long enough and got impatient and quit doing them without realizing I'd quit.

    I also take citalopram for depression/anxiety, but that doesn't seem to help with unexpected, high stress situations. I take adderall, which can (sometimes) make me frickin' bullet-proof while it's active.

    It also helps that I'm still learning about myself, learning how to read my own stress signals and to manage them rather than ignore them; to recognize them rather than pretend that nothing's wrong.

    twoton, I think it is very reasonable and proves that we can control our stress to a large extent, also when we recognize its background.

    It’s beautiful there. It just reminds me that there are things so much bigger than I, and going for an early morning walk, or just sitting out and looking directly at the mountains and drinking a coffee and letting your thoughts drift is amazing. It’s very restorative.

    I go even if it’s just for a weekend alone. It’s just a few hours and a beautiful drive.

    I’d suggest exercise, holidays, family, friends, pets, hobbies, eating well, plenty of sleep and down time. Just switching off from time to time and doing something that isn’t necessarily productive or required of you.

    For me, this place as a good way of relaxing and helping de stress.

    If you have something that keeps going round and round in your head, write it down. That may help. Sharing your problems with others (could be online if you can’t share them with friends and family) can help, even if they are just a sounding board.

    sharing and looking also for nice places.
