Stress relief meme

Ganked from cadhla....

What lowers your stress/blood pressure/anxiety level? Make a list and post it to your journal. Let the world see what calms you down!

My list:
  1. Working in radio. There's something about the focus needed to be "on" when I'm on air that just soothes my nerves. It's also nice having money coming in.
  2. Finding bargains in stores. When I get a really good buy on something I actually use, it's always a stress reliever.
  3. Dance Dance Revolution. There's something about dancing and scoring points that just floats my boat.
  4. Aqua aerobics. Unfortunately, I haven't had time to do this in ages due to my schedule.
  5. Sewing. Actually, it's not so much the process, but having the final creation In Hand that does it for me.
  6. Writing music. When I can create it, it feels great.
  7. Doing stand-up comedy. So far I've only done a little, but I seem to have a knack for it. When I'm on, I'm on. It's definitely something I want to pursue.
  8. Writing in my Livejournal. It's a way for me to vent.
  9. Reading -- when I can. Sometimes my eyes blur so I can't. This is big-time annoying, as reading is one of my "guilty pleasures."
  10. Researching stuff, whether on the Internet or elsewhere. I used to do this when I was a kid by going to the local library and looking up stuff in the periodical on microfilm. Now that there's the World Wide Web, I can indulge in this pleasure from home. Sometimes I even get to do it as part of my work.
  11. Cuddling my dog. She's adorable. There's something really cool about a creature that demands my attention and affection. Being wanted by someone is always nice.
