Can you swim, can you run, do you like food or alcohol? (Or both?)
Where do you get your stimulation?
I know that from personal experience, fitness, good food, good wine and good company relieve stress (oh yes, and helping people and asking for nil in return.)
Almost forgot – working hard.
I’ve not really heard of Vipassana meditation, but was going to suggest meditation anyway. Of any sort, I suppose. I meditate fairly often; its very calming.
Ummm, well, I have an idea.
Meditating is a good way to make stress go away for a while. Of course, it does take some focus…but instead of meditating on clearing your mind only, do this:
After you clear your mind, take yourself into a place of nature…like the beach, or a park. Hear all the sounds, feel the wind, sense what you would sense at such a place. By doing this, you will feel more refreshed when you open your eyes. I know I do. 🙂
It may sound hard, but it isn’t really, just imagine a place you already know and love, and it should be easy!
Hope that helps. 🙂
