How do you relax and manage stress?

If not TOO stressed and anxious, I take a seat in my favorite fluffy chair and tune everything out, concentrate on breathing in the good and exhaling out the bad. It's like walking a tight rope with distractions, but it's better than any drug or drink or any other artificial bull. After I relax I run a bubbly-scented bath and light my cinnamon-apple candles.

I cook, when life becomes out of my control, I need to control something in my little world, so I cook, and I can control exactly what goes in & how it comes out

@A DiabetesTeam Member, I try to keep things very simple too.
I ask myself just one question.
Is it my pie ? If the answer is no, I keep my
mouth shut and walk away. I keep my fingers in my own pie.

Playing Cricket is my main activity. Between playing on Saturday afternoons, and then training sessions on Tuesday and Thursday afternoon/evenings I get plenty of exercise. The other good thing is that my BSL's afterward are really good.

Well folks as I'm disabled 61yr old with type2 diabetes when its warm spring or summer weather I relaxing by taking my dog Winnie to the beach, I take a flash of tea & I sit on a huge log & I get immense pleasure from watching WINNIE chase her BALL or a stick & bring it back to me. In colour weather I take her for shorter walks. If the weather stops us from going out then I chill in the dark evening with a large glass of red, listening to Music with Winnie on my lap!
