      Me too. Music makes me a lot better after listening to it.

      Me? I get headaches whenever I eat chocolates.
      Too bad it's because I have a migraine. Actually my eye doctor told me not to eat that, and peanuts of course.:arf:

      Sitting outside and just relaxing and listening to the sounds outside I always find stress relieving myself :) sometimes I will sit outside and listen to my music to relieve stress or clean whilst listening to my ipod :)

      To relieve stress, I spend time with my daughter. Everytime I see her, my stress and my worries goes away. I also want to spend time chilling in a coffee shop reading magazines with my husband and daughter of course.

      Stress is definitely one of those things that you can't avoid no matter who you are. And once you become stressed, all you can really do is find a positive productive way to relieve the pain. For me, crying has always been a good release. Venting, actually speaking about the problem is always effective as well. I play the guitar which involves speaking and releasing my emotions and I usually get caught up in the moment and shed a few tears as well. Eating comfort food such as cookies, cakes, candy bars, ice cream, and donuts helps relieve stress too. There are many different ways to relieve the emotions built up inside, it's just all about finding the right ones for you.

      hmmm.. most of the time, I relieve by hanging out with my closest friends at work. We actually feel each other so when one feels that the other is stressed out, they would know what to do. Normally, we would drink some beer after shift and maybe sing our stresses out.

      Since that is not really a healthy lifestyle, now I am trying a different way to relieve my stress and that is to jog. It is still on the works though. lol

      AWWW too sweet! My 2 year girl is going through a 'mad' phase right now and hates people kissing and hugging her LOL I miss when she used to kiss me.

      My 1 year boy is just learning how to kiss, he just leans in and puts his mouth on my cheek but does not know how to puker up yet LOL.

      Same here, like to listen to music since it always relieved me from stress. It also makes me feel calm and relaxed. Sometimes, I just eat or just go to the mall for a walk.

      I will usually take a long walk to get some fresh air and just enjoy the sound of birds chirping and the wind. I also like to listen to relaxing classical music.

      When I was in College i gained very weight because I turned my stressful moment into eating. But now I learned, every time I am stressed out I will pray and ask for God's help and deliverance. Also, I will stop doing on something that makes me stressful. I listen or watch some funny videos. I go and visit my brother's house and play with my nephew and nieces.
