Depends on the source of the stress. A puching bag (the heavy kind and remember the gloves) works.

I use the effects of stress to excel. I work well in stressful situations.

When not at work or not wanting to use the effects of stress on my life, I use, in no certain order:
Prayer
Deep breathing exercises
Prayer
Strenuous exercise
Prayer

A hot bath with soothing soft music.
The punching bag is something I need to try!
You need a massage with hot oils. Works every time.

Yes a hot bath is good, I like to lite candles. And for me, my computer really relaxes me. Or reading poetry or a good book. No tv. I hate tv. floria

One form that I use when I'm really stressed/angry is take some water and run for miles on end.
Kickboxing is usually a good way to get everything out.

Alternatively, screaming at the top of my lungs for ages does wonders. You mightn't be able to talk after it but it's better than hitting someone...which used to be a stress reliever...

If this is all the world has to offer, I want a refund on my life.

It's different for each person I guess. I find a place where i can be completely alone and dream.

I listen to music (Enya, George Winston, Enigma), lose myself in a book (something exciting like a good spy or horror novel), or take a long hot shower. If those methods don't work, I load my gun.

I usually fire up the dirt bike and go like &$#@!
However, this can be a bit dangerous and not everyone has a dirt bike.
I have recently purchased a heavy bag (punching bag),
and that is a GREAT release of stress.
Just go out and kick and hit it until I have no energy left!
It's also a great way to stay in shape!
It's a great investment.
