1. First, and before we start busting stress, what causes you the most stress, is it big things or the small stuff ? I have a lot of stress in my life right now, most of it financial. I don't want to go into the details, suffice it to say the four years have been very difficult. It's a BIG thing that is making all the small stuff feel difficult, like breathing.
2. Exercise or chocolate for stress busting ( or maybe something else) ? Both. I exercise in the morning and have chocolate in the afternoon.
3.What is your favourite music to chill out to? I like a lot of different types of music, just nothing to heavy and intense, no heavy metal, screaming punk, or what I call "heavy metal symphony"...otherwise I like a lot. coldplay is good, Celtic music, flute or piano, Dixie Chicks or Indigo Girls, Elvis Costello, Neil Young.
4. Where do you go to chill? A long walk with my dogs in the woods. Or on my deck with a glass of wine. Or in my reading room with a cup of coffee or tea. A good book helps too.
5. Extrovert or introvert, do you relax at a party, or do you prefer a solitary walk? I'm a little of each, if I have enough solitary time then I enjoy a good party.
Bonus- share your favourite stress busting tip! A steaming hot bath just before bedtime with some fragrant oil or bubbles, a good long soak, with a cup of relaxing tea...at least it works well in the winter...or take some time off and away from the usual routine, do something different to get some perspective...pray, read a good book or poetry, clean the house (always helps), cook a good meal and eat it leisurely, watch a movie...anything to change the rhythm.
