When I read this thread, it occurred to my Dumbie Self that I hadn't exercised in ages.

Thanks to YOU, posters, I did my free-weights today, and felt so much better afterwards!

Why is this so easy to forget, I wonder?

@BorisKitten,
it's hard for me to remember so many details in the day unless I schedule it - maybe one forgets because it's not a ritual?

Do whatever you love to do. Over the years I've played tennis, jogged, rode and cared for horses (the best), walked the dogs, hugged the cats and dogs, gardened. read. I guess everybody should exercise. Right now, I exercise on machines, walk the dogs, garden, meditate, listen to music, write stuff.

Avoid your children = instant stress relief Laughing - just kidding of course!

Exercise definitely is a good outlet for stress,
so is laughter - a good comedy on tv, youtube, reading jokes etc. whatever makes you laugh - it will be so refreshing!
Walking outdoors and admiring the scenery is soothing

@Pemerson,
To piggy-back on Pemerson, it has been found that seniors who have pets such as cats and/or dogs have a happier life.

@CalamityJane,
I promised myself a dog after I retired, but my travels prohibits it.

@cicerone imposter,
Well, traveling can sure relieve stress, once you get to your destination. While on the plane you could watch funny animal shows. Animals do make us laugh!
Except when they pee on the rug - now, that's stressful.

@Pemerson,
There were some real good deals to Australia this past week on flights and hotel, but my wife said it's too long of a flight, so I had to give up the idea. I don't care much for flying and waiting hours on layovers, but I'm hooked on travel, and have done my share. I have made two reservations for this year so far; the first in May to the Amazon in Peru, and the second to South India. I'm also looking at a Norwegian cruise for March.

If you're interested in seeing my travelogues with pictures on a2k, you're welcome to view them. My last one was on Philly where my wife and I spent five days.

@cicerone imposter,
We have many friends who travel extensively. They get stressed if they have to stay home too long! And, they have no pets unless they travel mostly in one of those huge motorhomes.

I'll look for the photos of your trips.

Yes, there is a "magic pill" we can use to deal with stress, to keep you - and your aging parent! - young and healthy. It's called "Exercise". In fact, Dr. Robert N. Butler, Director of National Institute of Aging, said

"If exercise could be packed into a pill,
it would be the single most widely prescribed,
and beneficial, medicine in the nation."

Mentally, I dwell on the death of communism.

Leisurely, I think: "there is no communism in Russia."
