    Default How do you relieve stress?

    So I started a Phd about 2-3 months ago, and that coupled with some shitty personal things (boy problems lulz), has left me feeling a bit stressed out!

    I've handed in my first assignment, so I have a tiny bit of time to somewhat relax, but pretty soon there's gonna be lots of pressure, and I'm expected to start teaching Old English language classes in September, so I'm freaking out a bit.

    I'd usually try go for a walk with the dog, but the weather has been an absolute bollocks recently, so that's been cut down. I also do archery and train twice a week (which is good for relief when you're imagining someone's face on the target), but I still find myself feeling very stressed out and sometimes overwhelmed.


    S, what do you do when you're feeling like shite and any advice that I can take on board before I go nuts?

    Hey Alison, I understand the feeling you're going through. Didn't do a phD but did stuff with an awful lot of stress in a long period of time. The problem is, I can give you my technics but I guess you have to find your own.

    The only thing that works for me is sport or any kind of physical activities [Insert obvious sex joke]. If the weather is horrible, I clean (which I usually absolutely hate doing).

    As for the overwhelming kind of stress, I didn't believe in them but breathing technics actually work.

    If none of this works, you can run and scream naked. And cry.

    Thanks for that!

    yeah, I think some intense physical activity would probably be a good idea. Once the weather is okay I can go back to hill walking and stuff. And maybe try joining more clubs in college.

    I also want to try do yoga. I've done it once before, but I should probably try get into it more.

    And running and screaming naked...I'll try that too!

    Try writing in a journal. It helps me out so much writing everything out that is bothering me. And after I do feel relieved cause its out of my head and not building up inside causing me to crazy. If that doesn't help I just talk to a couple friends. If all else fail just get drunk, cry and pass out. You wake up in the morning feeling better but might feel hungover but that is only temporary.

    Like Harleyquiiinn said, physical activities. For me that's teamsports or running, but teamsports help the most.

    From now on I'll just imagine Harley and Alison running around naked.

    I would have thought your friends were the problem considering you have awful taste in that department

    Lol. I do actually have some pretty awesome friends. Oh when it comes to MOTO ( that's who you're talking about I guess) gotta be careful what I say. He doesn't like to hear if I'm upset about something. He hates emotions.

    Blasting music. Loud.

    Also, I tend to feel most relaxed when I'm drawing, but I'm sure that doesn't extend to everyone. Consuming projects, like stippling, really take your mind off problems, and make you focus on what your doing.

    Music does help me out a lot too. I completely forgot to mention that.
