    Anyone have good, go-to stress busting tips or tricks ?

    Could be that quick way to deescalate or something long term to keep it all smooth sailing.

    I have recently found myself getting stressed and having an impact on my daily life. I had no hobbies I would just work work work along with being dad! So decided to get a hobbie. I use to play rugby as about 15 years ago. So took up the sport again. Played my first competitive match last weekend and feel amazing. My point being find a hobble something you enjoy doing or use to will make a big difference!

    I love to lose myself in a book to clear my mind about, I walk to and from my work so listen to audio books and it takes my mind off the stresses of the day.

    For me, meditation, running and my Nintendo Switch have all proved invaluable, at different times.

    Meditation hard at certain points when you have had no proper sleep for a while, as an example, but then it is less time consuming to do that for 5-10 minutes than go for a run. So it remains a balancing act. I used to read a lot but now find I either don’t have the time or fall asleep whilst reading. Hopefully I can get back into that at some point in the future.

    For stress busting for myself I find I have to be active. I train in Martial Arts so will use my equipment, maybe practice with the Bo staff for a bit. If I can get out the Mountain Biking, hitting a trail hard!! Granted not always easy with 3 kids, but that’s for special days!!

    100% its about hobbies! Get out more, even if for a walk, get some fresh air, get to the gym, get on the local dadsnet groups and organise a meet up with other dads to share your stories.
