Talking on the phone to someone special and when I can't do that, I get into a good PC game or one that I'm testing. Works for me !
Get going on a good jigsaw puzzle. Your mind is taken off everything else.
Reading the Bible truly releases stress. Jesus said," Come to me, all you who are toiling and loaded down, and I will refresh you." Matthew 11:28
My biggest stress reliever is my phone. Other than that, music, reading and sometimes a nice walk.
Cuddling with my dog
Beating on a heavy bag works for me.
There is a scripture in the bible that helps me. Phlp 4:6,7 "Do not be anxious over anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication along with thanksgiving, let your petitions be made known to God; and the peace of God that surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and your mental powers by means of Christ Jesus."
Getting out in nature and walking.
A hot bath with a good book.
If all else fails I have a prescription for a muscle relaxer that puts me to sleep so I can wake up refreshed. (The only time I actually use these is after dealing with my mother-in-law for an extended period of time.)
Meditating. Around 30 minutes at a time. 10 minute works too.
Plenty of phone apps for it. I just put on my headphones in the office whenever I need it and feel refreshed after.
Talking to myself.
My girlfriend and family, friends, important people in my life!
Actually, punching the wall!
Going to beach or into the woods!
And Linkin Park
Tickle fight with the wife.
I normally find that knocking seven shades of **** out of a squashball for 40 minutes does it. (The heart attack follows later.... )
I have learned to take one day at a time. Why add tomorrow's anxieties to those of today? Jesus puts it this way: "So never be anxious about the next day, for the next day have its own anxieties. Each day has enough of its own troubles." (Matthew 6:34) A 19th-century philosopher wrote: “Life can only be understood backwards; but it must be lived forwards.” Although we can learn from failures, our present actions form our future.
