What helps you relax or calm down?

Over the years I've noticed that no matter how distressed or anxious I am as soon as I just sit down under the Sun for a while and listen to some instrumental music consciously I get calm enough to think clearly or even take a nap. And removing shoes is a must to reach peak comfiness for me.

What about you sushis?

Relaxing anime or manga like Yokohama Kaidashi Kikou and Aria. They delete all worries and anxiety for a few hours, and makes me feel very relaxed and happy.

I think it is odd, since both have apocalyptic or less comfy settings, but the stories are warm and comfy anyways.

whenever i get really bad anxiety i usually like to draw something to help me sort of vent those feelings out. it just sort of feels nice to express it that way. ill usually listen to a single song on repeat while im doing it. afterwards i usually take a nap.
i love aria too. ill sometimes put on an ep of the natural as a pick-me-up. i love that season so much.

It's surely not the healthiest thing to do but food and alcohol plus something comfy to watch like what sushi rolls mentioned usually does it for me

Sun helps me a lot. I get really depressed when I don't get enough of it.

I like comfy anime and manga, even though most of these longer SoL shows like Aria are still in my backlog.
I also like getting some alcoholic drink and watching something from the "so bad it's good" genre. Been saving these shows to watch them with friends, but I don't always get lucky enough to meet up with them.

Alcohol. Usually lots of beer or a couple of simple strong cocktails.
Music. Heavy and black metal, jazz, city pop or classical. Just putting the headphones on and listening.
Reading or watching anime doesn't help me. I get distracted very easy, which pedals the distress and anxiety. Especially phone calls, my God, I hate mobile phones. Maybe this is the reason why I've been watching less and less anime over the recent years.
Holding nice things in hands. You know. I love simple and sturdy things that were made to last, especially if they are old and used. I have a couple of them: zippo lighter, an old metal sony e-reader, a metal parker pen (of the cheaper ones, but still). I dream about finding an old sony walkman for a reasonable price - The Walkman, one of the first metal body models - and collecting cassettes. And installing a cassette deck in a car (when I'll get one) instead of a modern usb-stick one. Imagine that.


There are a few things that relax me but for some reason its hard for me to actually do do them even when I know I'd like to. I like going outside for walks, I like laying in bed, I like drawing and these are all helpful when I'm stressed but I'm too addicted to my computer. I'll go for a walk and think to myself 'this is really nice, I should do this more often' but I never do! One thing I do regularly is cook. It basically forces me to get up and move around for half an hour and I even get a treat out of it.

Hey, that's what I feel too. It's like "I know I'd be calmed if I took this game I wanted to check out for a long time", but find it hard to even run it in first place. Or go for a walk, totally.

No idea about cooking. I like it, but also have to do it anyway or I'll starve.


Mindfulness meditation, cocktails, and cooking for sure.

Something about the process of considering different layers of tastes and textures when deciding what ingredients to use. It's really engrossing, and then you get the payoff at the end when you can enjoy a well-made drink/meal.


Meditating: I quit drinking ten years ago and stopped smoking weed a year ago after I mastered my meditation skills.

Nowadays when I'm stressed, I automatically switch to watching my breath and trying to make it more comfortable. Learning how not to cling onto anxious or just heavy thoughts makes a huge difference.


Alcohol is my poison, man. But I prefer coffee these days.

A nice drink


Taking a bath with a good book. Just chilling in the water is good too.


Is this your footage? It does look relaxing.

Coffee makes my world go round


File: 1621861883982.jpg (102.58 KB, 853x649, 20210523.jpg)



I smoke a ton of pot and listen to ambient until I pass out.

The most relaxing thing for me to do at the end of the week is smoke a few joints. I don't really look for anything too crazy, just something to relax the body. Not really into the whole "head-high" thing. I don't smoke at all besides that, but it makes me see the appeal of it. For me the actual act of smoking in itself is pretty therapeutic for some reason.
