only because you are anonymous - It there was a name behind it, then maybe an answer!

Why on earth do you ProZ back office people even let such anonymous polls through? I would expect that there are so many paying Prozians posting a poll that are much more important than these dubious anonymous polls?

I hit the bottle - hard - because life as a tech translator in the fast line is tough.

And, why wasn't "sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll" in the list. Just sayin' ...

I usually end up watching TV or playing guitar. However, I'd jump at the chance of a massage. In fact, someone recently gave me one of those group-buy discount vouchers for a massage - problem is I'd need to make an appointment and then keep it, never an easy task given the more important things I have to do every day, and I'd have to drive for about 40 mins just to get there...

Nothing beats sinking into a hot bubble bath, but it depends on my mood (and how hard and long the day was…). Sometimes, I just read a newspaper or a magazine, others I watch TV or listen to music…

Ultimate stress relief
I've had a nice long (over an hour or so) soak in the bath (no soap is allowed in Japanese baths) and polished off a bottle of champers while listening to a couple of favourite CDs before. Very nice!

Sleep May 1, 2016

By the time I'm finished, it's usually too late to do anything but go to bed. I never seem to get enough zzzs.

reading, gym, bike May 1, 2016

It depends on the day of the week and on the weather obviously, but this is what happens most often:
Mon-Wed-Fri: after work I cook for my kids and then I relax with a good book- if I finish before 6 pm, I also ride my MTB for 90 mins (before the cooking part)
Tue-Thu: after work I drive my boy to karate lesson, and while he's there, I stay at the gym and I take some exercise
Saturdays: books/going out with the family and/or friends
From May to October I use my MTB more often during the week.
Watching Tv does not relax me at all, it actually irritates me!

Apparently we humans are too prude and proper to go with the SD&RNR.

And why didn't they include “Go to the bathroom to read a book”? It's a fair way to relax (for men).

I don't own a tv but I love movies and select British and American tv shows (Netflix is your friend!) so that's what I watch to wind down from the stress. Occasionally, I read a book, but mostly, I am too tired.

Being a single working mother of a minor, the option "going out" (whether or not with friends) is not yet readily available to me.

And drinking alcohol in any form or quantity disagrees with me to a degree that I can only enjoy it (which I certainly do!) when there is no work waiting for me the next day because then I will infallibly be nursing a hangover proportionate to my intake the previous day... A shame, really.

It depends on the day... May 1, 2016

I go dancing (lindy hop and/or flamenco), or enjoy watching t.v. or knit or spend time with my loved ones.
