Put on some music and play rock star. Take a walk or a short drive through the hills. Sometimes furiously cleaning a bathroom does the trick. Smiley Happy

 

Once in a great while I'll type out an angry letter that I do not send. It's just to work through the emotion.

Normally, I use a part time job, meditation, golf, playing music (string instruments and keyboards), and my volunteer work in different areas.

 

During the last month, while going through my stem cell transplant, I have used meditations, programs other than news on TV, and this chat site. Naturally, the transplant process itself takes up time and distracts form the many stressful things in the news and in politics.

 

Volunteer work in helping and being of service to others is always a good ticket.
