I usually try taking a walk, or picking up my camera and taking pictures, or editing pictures on my computer.
I must confess though I've been known to take my anger out on an innocent person from time to time.

Nice list of things to reduce or leave stress...

As such stress is natural response from human body which has been developed during our ancient days. Anyway I mostly listen to music, read funny book, pray and meditation or play/mingle with family and friends. Lately I have developed an habit to exercise and to relax. And sometime I drink calming tea to keep it peaceful. :D)

Cool...have a stressfree clam weekend ahead...
