    We all confront the stress in our life. What's your weapon to counter it?

    Well, there's the final solution but it's a one time job only.

    Just bury the problems in, until it all explodes one day.


    Working with earth relieves stress I guess.

    Many ways to solve that:
    - Stand in front of mirror, imagine something terrible.
    - Try to hate yourself and everyone around you.
    - Always think negative.
    - Don't care about other people's opinion.
    - Don't work out everyday and eat more.
    - Do as San suggest: Harm yourself.

    A big ass joke, of course.

    Lowering my expectations in everything.
    If something isn't perfect then I'm ok with that. No need to be a perfectionist.

    Listening to music or watching a movie also helps.

    A campaign of pure failure and discomfort in which you decidely do things you know you are terrible or you didn't tried and feared. Your gut will say "no don't do it", and you simply reverse it. Do this for 1 entire month each time you became ridiculous and too pain avoidant/pleasure seeking.
    Start with meaningless things like ie. cold showers. The limit is not killing yourself while doing this ("Don't jump that edifice Jhon! -> Let's jump!").

    You will then experience how your natural survival instinct conquers everything. Still, sometimes i became excesively assertive (as a contrary concept to perfectionism) and people would get mad at me; should be noted that i'm still a "tribe" values like person.

    Taking things easy. Had I understood that earlier, it would've saved me a lot of unecessary stress.

    Sometimes it's annoying when you set a goal and you do anything to target it but fail eventually...

    Hence why I aim for minimal passing in almost everything so I can spend more time playing games as a form of escapism.

    Consumer galore.
    It's much better you decided to create and not just consume.

    me too only I go for poison because there are no physical wounds and you might become immune to the poison and then after feel good because this means you are slightly super human

    personally I find exercise fun and stress reducing, but when I have to do very demanding physical labour I just feel like breaking down and crying. all that exercise often means nothing because you can never endure long enough to feel good about yourself.

    another form of stress reduction is sport. combat sports are my personal favourites. no where else is it perfectly acceptable to knock someone's brains out and for the crowd to cheer. Combative sword fighting was my jam! you hit someone in the head with a bamboo stick and they have to say, 'good match thank you for teaching me'

    lol sometimes they ask for more ^-^

    another stress reducer is doing some activity that is a little dangerous. I used to do a little road racing (on a bicycle) riding 40kms on the highway was both fun and super dangerous.

    hmm what else....

    I guess the point is to do activities that allow you to abuse others and attempt suicide.... without anyone realising it
