I clean a lot. Usually in the same fashion, too. Start in the kitchen, move to the living room, and if I haven't calmed down the bathroom is last! :lol:

Read, listen to music, or work in my journal (the latter might involve writing, making a collage, or both).

I can read if I'm just normal stressed, but if I'm really stressed out, sometimes reading goes out the window (unless I enjoy reading the same sentence a million times :lol: ).
Music is a must when I'm really stressed.

I'll also cook when I'm stressed.

It often depends on the origin of it.

Listen to my favourite music and Box. :angry-boxing: If you go hard for at least an hour I guarantee you will lose your stress. :)
