well since I am so Jobless at the moment why not make use of this time and post something...
I wanted to be different this time.. so just thought of writing an article on beating the stress.. Give it a read :)

Tips on Beating the stress:

Gym: Whenever I get the feeling of anger or frustration, the gym is the best solution I can think of. Jump on a treadmill that's slightly hidden from the general gym population, right in front of the mirror and pump it up to the highest setting challenge your limits. Reminds me of the song “Free Falling” by Tom petty
And i'm free, free falling.
Yeah i'm free, free falling.
And all the vampires walkin'
through the valley move west down ventura Boulevard
.And all the bad boys are standin' in the shadows, and the good girls
Are home with broken hearts..

Arms and legs move in a maniacal way forming all the possible angles, and when you run like there's no tomorrow, there is a feeling of complete lack of control. The best part is when you refrain yourself from pressing the stop button. You try your best to test your limits. That is something that actually works as a stress buster for me.

Food: Namely, CCD’s Cold coffee. I know I can make better coffee than CCD but still I don’t want all the credit . I recently experienced Dominos cheese burst pizza (and the apparent beginnings of a heart attack half way through my meal). Trust me it is true to its name…the best part is the cheese which drips down while eating it. Pizza is so tender does not require much effort from your Jaws, Ice cream (Some brownie fudge by Baskin and Robbins) is simply terrific. Indijoes desserts are simply heavenly(apart from their sizzlers).

Music: Music is an art form consisting of sound and silence expressed through time. Elements of sound as used in music are pitch (including melody and harmony), rhythm (including tempo and meter), structure, and sonic qualities of timbre, articulation,dynamics, and texture.
( Chill --> you all know that I am not so profound - the definition of music is lifted from Wikipedia :) )
Music is the best stress buster:
1) Assort all your favorite tracks (My collection generally includes rock, classics, metal)…
2) Form a playlist and don’t include sad songs.. they wont help in lifting your spirits high.
3) Tune In --- and start moving around… indulge yourself in some other activity and keep the music in the background.
My recommendation: w Freebird (Lynyrd skynyrd) lyrics are pasted below:

If I leave here tomorrow
Would you still remember me?
For I must be travelling on, now,
'Cause there's too many places I've got to see.
But, if I stayed here with you, girl,
Things just couldn't be the same.
'Cause I'm as free as a bird now,
And this bird you can not change.
Lord knows, I can't change.
Bye, bye, its been a sweet love.
Though this feeling I can't change.
But please don't take it badly,
'Cause Lord knows I'm to blame.
But, if I stayed here with you girl,
Things just couldn't be the same.
Cause I'm as free as a bird now,
And this bird you'll never change.
And this bird you can not change.
Lord knows, I can't change.
Lord help me, I can't change.

Misc : Books/ Chit-chat/ Alcohol/shopping they should be able to help you. These things have worked for me in the past. Esp shopping(Too predictable :)).
