    When I get stressed I either listen to really loud music and clean stuff, or take the dogs a long walk in the fresh air.

    Seriously :)

    Though I'm not sure it's a good idea if you have neighbours and your daughter is home :p

    I find cleaning my fish tank out threaputic (sp) I would do a water change and re arrange the ornaments in it and this was usualy late at night when my son was in bed. By the time I was done carrying water trying not to spill it, I was too tired to be stressed.

    When I lived at home, I would do a jigsaw or some art. Or just write everything down.

    I write things down too everything! Lists of what to do tomorrow or even the next week! I also write poems.

    I do find cleaning my tank helpful to, but my girl is adament to 'help' now (she doesn't really she 'supervises' !!)

    My evenings can be very boring! Which is why i couldn't wait to get broadband back ;) lol! x

    I find talking to my hubby very helpful cos he is thinks practically and doesn't let his emotions come into it, mind you sometimes that can get annoying too :rolleyes: You could always rant on here if you haven't got anyone to talk it over with.

    I usually walk the dog to calm me down and mull things over.

    If I can't sleep I usually do some ironing while the tv is on quietly, I find being productive is better for me. I usually go back to bed at 5am totally shattered.
