    Yoga, running, swimming, a bike ride through the neighborhood, a nap with my dogs, putt putt, OH! my favorite:  do the humpty-hump Wink.

    A glass of wine & a bubble bath isn’t a bad idea either.

    go outside for a walk/run.  Shower, watch sappy chick flicks, read a good book.  Day dream about smoking cigarettes (I’ve never been addicted to them, but smoked them socially….my FI quit cold turkey one year ago, so now I’ve banned myself from even having one socially—its hard!).  DANCING!

    Go running/hiking, take a nice bath, and pick up a good book!  Alcohol just make me stress even more cause I can get real emotional after a few drinks lol

    running or yoga! if you aren’t into exercise, try bubble baths or reading, or find a relaxing hobby you enjoy – this is going to sound super immature and weird but i find coloring extremely relaxing!  Just do something that is totally only about you!

    Alcohol was the only thing you could think of? hahahaha

    I go hiking, play with my cat, do photography, go for a bike ride, hang out with friends, surf the internet, etc.

    Lots of alcohol is really bad for your liver and other health issues!

    If you need to let out some aggression more-so than just relax, go to a batting cage or driving range.  Best.Medicine.EVER!

    Even after the shittiest day at work, I come home and take a nice long shower, and that helps a lot.

    My favorite? Kickboxing. Working out while throwing punches – perfect for me!

    Go shopping? A walk around the neighborhood and then a long shower or bath followed by a little reading with a cup of really good tea tennds to soothe me.

    Wine.  🙂  Love that your first option on the poll was alcohol, lol.

    After the wine – workout with FI, watch movies, cook a meal.  We also like to putter around in our garden if the weather is nice.

    Honestly, as soon as I see his beautiful face every evening and get a big hug and kiss from him – I’m immediately unwound.  😉
