I tend to drink a beer to keep my brain a float. Excercise till I feel that I'm having difficult concentrating on anything that is depressing or at least till i'm sore Plus watching movies and listening to music. drink enough coffee that i'm able to handle the stress ahead without taking a few seconds to have a few breathers so often.
Music, dancing, drawing, singing, writing, reading, cuddling with stuffed animals\pokemon, looking at My Melody art, talking it out, and playing Animal Crossing new leaf or happy home designer (non violent and educational).
Or when those don't work I watch AG doll stop motions or make my own.
I deal with a lot of stress and disorders and anxiety and depression so I have plenty of coping skills.
deal with it. I try to find the time to play video games, "escape" while watching something, or try to find something else to do such as work. but most cases, like many, we just have to suck it up and deal with what life throws at us.
Good ol Castlevania soundtracks currently; and sometimes I lurk on Assassins creed brotherhood online.
I'm usually the one in manhunt telling the newbie kids in the group to get off the damn roofs and stop drawing attention to us when we are the ones supposed to be hiding.
AC number 1 rule in manhunt: If you are the team that hides, and are running about on the roofs; it's easy to tell you are NOT an NPC...therefore you are target practice for the higher ranked enemy team who have guns or very skilled at parkour.
You'd think this stresses me out but nah, i love the thrill of that game when you have actual living teammates playing with you...and you can pick out who are the newbs and who are the sneaky veterans in the game.
