Random Response #3
• I am in love!
• I expose myself to my favorite form of comedy and I have a good belly laugh for as long as possible.

• I listen to music that makes me wonder at the beauty of it. The Ramones or Motorhead does it for me every time.

• I strive to help someone who is having a hard time with something. Cliché as it is, doing good stuff for others helps to relieve stress.
• I mentally relive my happiest time, indulging in the actual feeling of the happiness experienced, not the reality of it being gone.
• I go for a full body massage. Darkness, mood sounds, aromatherapy etc, with joint clicking lasting at least a full hour. Thai massage is good.
