Nothing....I suck at the whole stress thing!

Or I'll work OT, because work is usually the biggest cause of my stress!!

I usually go for a walk or a drive, depending on the weather...

Remove my kids from the room I'm in? LOL!! I listen to music or crochet! Watching TV with my husband at night is really relaxing too.

Weightlifting is a great stress reliever for me. That and a nice relaxing bath.

Clean my house from top to bottom. Lol.

I also turn on DH's Xbox and play online Call of Duty. Yep, gamer girl over here.

And if those things don't work, I get jiggy with the hubby. Haha.

I like to listen to music, wind down with a movie and the hubs or take a long bath or shower. A glass of wine is another helpful one but obviously I can't use that one very often anymore.

It depends on what is causing the stress. I usually try to remove myself from the situation. Sometimes I walk on the treadmill, watch TV, go shopping, or pray depending on what's going on. I try to identify the source of the stress and think of ways to either just make me calm down or remove the source. When I was stressed about finding out I was having a girl, I called my friend who has 6 girls! That helped!
