How Do You Relieve Stress?

An open-ended question for all you out there...

What do you do to relieve stress, whether on the job or on the job hunt? I've found that I've engaged in constructive behavior as well as destructive behavior.

On the constructive side, I've been doing more walking over the summer. I've found that walking the dog and listening to podcasts on my portable media player have been very enjoyable. I feel good because I'm exercising, and I'm doing other things as well. Good to get away from the computer or otherwise out of the home.

On the destructive side, I've engaged in other habits that bring only temporary emotional relief. In other words, I've directed the energy back on myself. I don't want to be too specific here in this forum on that.

What about you all?

The New Job - JOKE ALERT!

a little humor for you...

A passenger in a taxi leaned over to ask the driver a question and tapped him on the shoulder. The driver screamed, lost control of the cab, nearly hit a bus, drove up over the curb, and stopped just inches from a large plate glass window.

For a few moments everything was silent in the cab, and then the still shaking driver said, "I'm sorry but you scared the daylights out of me."

The frightened passenger, apologized to the driver, and said he didn't realize a mere tap on the shoulder could frighten him so much.

The driver replied, "No, no, I'm sorry, it's my entire fault, today is my first day driving a cab.... I've been driving a hearse for the last 25 years."
