Practicallyall of the above Oct 8, 2011

No single strategy - if the dog needs walking it gets a walk, if the weather is right I go for a cycle ride, I might put on a CD, sleep, ... anything other than work.

all of the above. It depends on the situation.

But also... I wouldn't say I get stressed often. I try to enjoy what I do. If there is a tight deadline, a difficult project, or a 'crazy' client... stress will not help solve the issue. The best anti-stress solution is to try to control your emotions. And we should be able to do it, as we are able to control all of our activities.

It depends on what is causing the stress... Oct 8, 2011

I might take a deep breath, walk the dogs, listen to music, watch TV, go shopping, take a nap, bake a cake, read the newspapers, clean and tidy up the house, eat chocolate and... promise myself to manage my time better next time!

Music among other things Oct 8, 2011

I voted "play music", as I find playing the guitar very helpful for switching off. But as others have said, I use a whole range of strategies, depending on what is causing the stress and how I feel.

And sometimes... Oct 8, 2011

reciting some verses of a Holy Book, doing some prayers and remembering His greatness may be of great help.

Meeting friends Oct 8, 2011

A general comment about polls: Why are there always so many people chosing "other"? Can't we just give a general answer, even if, of course, we are not robots and we never meet any option 100%? We can always say "all/some of the above/it depends", but maybe if we tried to chose the most close option to the reality, the results would be more interestingicon_smile.gif

As for this poll, I marked "meeting friends". The long answer is that I stop working, I think that I have more time than I think and not as much work as it seems, I create a new schedule and then I relax doing whatever, mostly meeting friends, but also going for a walk or watching TV. After that break, I can start againicon_smile.gif

I spend a good deal of time reading novels - nothing like a novel for taking you far, far away from the stress of everyday life. As "I read" is not an option for this poll, it has to be "other".
