Pressure point massage works the knots out. Of course this can get expensive, but the massage therapist will be able to tell you more about their location and how to fix it so you don't have to keep coming in often.

It's called triggerpoint therapy and it works wonders Though not all knots cause triggerpoints, some just need to be stretched out or worked through But yeah, ultimately the therapist should be able to figure out what's causing them and how you can eliminate them yourself - like I said, almost guaranteed it's postural.

take a cold shower if ya have trouble sleeping- your mind and body start to take action to try and warm ya back up- and then......... when you cant stand one more seccy



jump out and without drying off throw on pajamas and dive into bed

you'll forget your probs and your body will shut down

only did i find this out when i had a shitty case of insomnia one year

i would suggest staying in the cold water until you are violently shivering

its fun- monks in training do it

I feel relaxed whenever I'm in the presence of cats. It's almost the only thing that relaxes me these days - other than having a drink with a pal or two, just going to a bar usually makes me feel good. Especially with some good tunes in the background.

and I guess pot

My dog was barking during it. It was loud and he was getting overstimulated. Pretty much the farthest thing from relaxing, in my mind.

My favourite way to relax would probably be lying on a couch in our backyard on a nice summer day, with a good book or my faithful iPod, In the absense of summer, just listening to music in my room is good enough. I'm usually very chilled out at home and can spend hours doing nothing, whereas at work I'm a different person - I go mad if I've got nothing to do.

i dont relax so much as have brief interludes of down time, this website is one of those things that gets me through the day, the other is my mp3 player which acts as a bullshit deflector at work so i dont have to listen to morons,

other down time- be somewhere where my children are not.
mindless cleaning.
valium.
wine. lots of wine.

I cannot really relax when I am at home because I always see stuff I need to do, work that needs to be done.

The best way to relax for me is either to grab a book and something to write, my walkman and go away into nature. Or, what's even better, hang with people I like, have some real fun, be really childish and irresponsible for a while, laugh a lot, usually have a few drinks and just forget everything else.

I like wearing headphones (with or without music playing) if I'm really irritable. People will just walk by and not say a word.
