Jigsaw puzzles are nice too.

This is one of the ways I relax:

Go out to dinner with a friend.
During dinner have a good talk about life (more specifically : the reasons that prevent you from relaxing: frustrations, worries, etc).
After dinner head to bar/cafe/club for a Zoostation show and rock out to u2 songs.
Spending most of the evening/night on the dancefloor.
And drinking lots and lots of







































































Nope.
Sorry to disappoint you.
Water or 7-up.

Maybe we do. Maybe I'm thinking about them. I'm not doubting it was a joke, but there's a line. It's kind of indefineable, but I think it's when the word gets repeated for repeating sake.

Headphones and certain cds always work for me.

Also, a fairly recent one on the advice of a friend (who told me to do this a couple of years ago, but I didn't pay attention then...tsk tsk) is to paint. Just get some cheap paints (even poster paints), brushes, and a pad of paper and start playing. I suck at painting, but I have to admit it was a hell of a lot of fun. And I listened to music while I was doing it, so that helped. Sculpting or working with clay (polymer clay can be good and not too messy) can be really good too.

Watch something completely mindless on the TV. That usually does the trick for me

I watch my lava lamp. I don't know how I ever lived without it.
I'm going to get this one someday. What a day that will be

Yoga
Tea/coffee - interestingly it has both effects on me, both energizes and calms,
Hot bath with aromatic oils and candles...with lotions and oils applied afterwards
Getting into a freshly made bed with a good book and a cup of cappucino afterward...

A long drive in the country with the windows rolled down and the music turned up.

* Put my camera on a macro setting and take photos of nature

* Catch up on gymnasts' progress by perusing YouTube vids

* Watch CSI re-runs On Demand, but actually turn the volume low and sleep on the couch

* Read

* Hold my cats

Play with my pets, read, take a nap, listen to music, workout.

ETA: I just noticed I had the related thread to this and I've calmed down at least a teensy bit since then.

For me:

Taking a drive
Reading
Being with close friends
Sitting on my balcony, with my headphones on, drinking Orang Juice

I can't relate to people that cannot relax at all; I hope you're able to find something that helps you out with this.
