There are various ways for me to cope up with stress. One is to laugh at small things, even at the stress factors, at everything to the point where I realize that I am losing it and then I laugh even more. It depends on how badly the nature of stress would be. If I find myself stressing over a group of people, I find my way out and walk away and find nice things along busy streets, eat somewhere, or visit a book store and read. Sometimes I like being an indoors man and stay in front of my computer, read stuff, talk to people over the internet, listen to music, watch a movie/TV show, or write. In bed, I read a book until I fall asleep. Also, I cry because I find it more healing to cry my worries out in bed at night. More importantly, I think about how big the world is and that I am just a mere period among other periods. I spend time with inspirational books or people who laugh with me. I indulge to things that make me wonder and inspire because it drives me to push forward in whatever I do. Although discreet, I have the power to change things and make it much better without compromising anything.
