You really have to make an effort to relax, and each person is different.
My husband swears by classical music.
He goes and sits in his room, turns on his stereo and listens to his favorite classical composers.
For me, sometimes I just need a good hard workout.
I like to put on boxing gloves and hit a punching bag... Makes me feel much better!
I've tried chanting and meditating a couple times, but I couldn't stop my brain from thinking about work.
I can't seem to get in the zone.
I saw a news article yesterday that says chocolate helps relieve stress.
Maybe you just need a chocolate bar!
Now there's a therapy I can get behind!
I think the main thing to keep in mind here is that stress is a serious issue.
You're not weak. You're not a loser. You just have to find what works for you.
Everybody's different. Maybe rock music is what works for you.
Speaking of rock music, there's a great concert happening downtown tomorrow night.
We could all use a break. What do you say?
Sound like fun. And thanks... You guys are true friends.
We're all in the same boat. Modern life is very stressful.
That's why we need friends.
You said it. See you tomorrow night!
It's a date!
