    I don't want to rant and complain, so I listen to Bob Marley. If he doesn't make me feel better, nothing will other than medication :)

    What do you do to chill out when you're feeling irritable and cranky?

    I pick at my husband!
    Only disadvantage is that he no longer lives at home during the week, so the weekends must turn into "Pick-at-husband-days" ;).

    No, honestly: music often is the "medicine" of choice. I listen to a different kind, but ... music it is!

    (And psst: I eat...)

    What sort of music!? I'm very curious. I don't usually listen to Bob Marley either (I'm a rocker :) ), I think that's why his music has such a strong effect on me.

    I have a few avenues when stressed... (in no particular order)

    1) Listen to some Pink Floyd, it's just incredibly centering for me, especially Distant Sound of Thunder, Wish You Were here and Momentary Lapse of Reason

    2) Play a computer game to engage my mind and distract me until I'm no longer stressed.

    3) Listen to music that resets my mood like Bob Marley, the soundtract to Across The universe, or Blue Man Group.

    4) Work on my backlog of raw files awaiting my attention. Sifting through shoots to get a great picture out really changes my mood.

    For me:
    music - classical music is a great way, though I also listen to a lot of Celtic (old and new age) such as Enya which is often very calming.

    After that computer games are good for stress relief - either a shooter for fast anger relief or a strategy and rule the world type game (then the world is yours!)

    Music is also on the top of the list for me, at least at work. Pink Floyd like Reebo, Enya like Overread (and Clannad).
    BTW that link to Andy Mckee is great... and I cannot find my Bob Marley CD... :(

    When at home I spend some time with my son. That's almost always a good cure for stress.
