          Many people often need 'down time'. What is it for you? What makes you feel calm?

          For me its reading. I often see that no matter how hectic life gets, or how depressed I feel, if I read a good novel that interests me, I feel lighter and at peace. I often go and sit in Barnes & Nobles, get a Venti Caramel Macchiato and sit in a corner of the store, surrounded by my books. I read and I get lost, often realizing that several hours have went by. I feel that its my 'happy place', where I can be me, and I don't know anyone, nor does anyone know me. Many of my friends find that a bit weird, as in school, in not studious at all.

          Another thing I do is listen to music. My iPod goes everywhere with me. I love listening to music that's not loud and all rap, but that has good lyrics and good beats.

 

          So the main question- what do you like to do when you're overwhelmed? How do you feel calm?

 

Thanx

Hi All!!

I'm really confused about the issue" Will I be overwhelmed when I do things I really like or Will I do the things I like when I'm overwhelmed"!!!

Cheers,

I love music, but at times with music also I can't overcome. It still lingers as songs do make me think, make me emotional because it has to be good no. as I can't listen to a crappy song. I think the best way for me is to watch a TV serial or watching a dance song or anything on TV that does not make me think. Something that's good to my eyes and not my mind.

Something that really calm me down is:

Go out for a cup of coffee with my best friend and talk about anything I cannot talk with my kids and family and listen to what my frind has to say about what he cannot say to his kids or family. Best Friends can listen to you better than anyone else in the world.

At home, I clean my usually already clean house cleaner, while listening to music.
I also take care of the garden.
At work, I grab a cup of coffee with a fellow sufferer and b@#$% till we are relieved!
