7 Unique Stress Relievers

Too much driving, too much shopping, too much rushingaround, running the kids around. Do family and workdemands have you stressed out?

There are many ways to help you control stress. Hereare some unique methods I've collected.

1. Yell! But---be sure you are alone. The best placeis in the car with the windows up. Stuck in traffic?Try it.

2. Sing. This is close to the first one. Lots of peopleswear by the power of music to release tension and stress. Sing wherever you feel comfortable. It doesn't matter what. Just have some fun with it! I have done this onall jobs I've had. Then I started dancing. Why not!People thought I was crazy, but it works.

3. Do something soothing. Start or try a activity likeknitting, crochet, pottery making. Don't worry about being good at it. It's the process that's beneficial. Sitting still while performing repetitive movements is calming and stabilizing for many people. It can be time to collect your thoughts.

4. Start a garden. Even apartment-dwellers can do this.Inside in pots, pots on the patio, pots, a small spotin your yard. There is a little work to setting it up.Tending plants, fruits, vegetables, flowers and watching them grow, bloom, or yield food is rewarding.Avid gardeners say working a garden is the best way

to control stress and worry. An added benefit is the creation of a more beautiful, restful environment.

5. Play with a dog or cat. Experts say Pet owners have longer lives and fewer stress symptoms than non-pet owners. Playing with your pet provides good vibrations.It's a form of social interaction with no pressure to meet anyone's expectations!

6. Gaze at the stars. Many times I have gazed up at thestars off my patio. Preferably in a still, dark, and quiet area, sit back and observe the heavens. The vastness of space is awesome. This way can make a lot of problems seem very small.
