....and all that jazZ

10.A looooooooong tight hug.
9.A night out partying with friends.
8.Play some music, sip on wine and cook.
7.Watch an old amitabh flick while ironing a whole bunch of clothes.
6.Phone conversations with my best friends bitching about everything and nothing till the battery dies out.
5.Sitting by the ocean. Letting the eyes take in the blue. The nose the smell of the salt. The ears filled with the sound of the waves and the soul filled with deep breaths holding the passing wind for a second before letting go.
4.Working out. Sweating out body toxins. Clearing out toxic thoughts.
3.Curling up on my couch and reading Harry Potter or PG Wodehouse's Omnibus for the hundredth time.
2.Dancing.

The above are all stress relieving techniques I believe in. (the order can be scrambled depending on mood) but this one is by far always number one when you are down, or rather when I am stressed and/or down

1. Call Mom. Pick and fight with her about something completely unrelated.Rave,rant,make a scene and then when I am tired, I flop down, put my head in her lap (imagine it since I am away) and cry.

  • Though I do not believe in most of these stress-relieving techniques, there's an abstract soft feminine side to your expression. I really love that :)

    For me, the one and the only way out is MUSIC (specially Manna Dey/ Mukesh/ Hemant Kumar).

  • Well...that is why its abstract. But one must have an eye to see it :)

    I flatter you? Mam you just have to go a little down and read some of my earlier comments to see that I don't. But yes - I say everything that must be said :) In a lighter vein, "Chane ke jhaad ki chinta mat kijiye. You wont break your bones. I am waiting right under it :p"
