Gym, anime, making music (although that's sorta work, doesn't really feel like it) window shopping on Carb, and of course reading all tha random crazy threads that pop up

Powerlifting and HIIT (only place I can lay down a gut roaring scream and nobody blinks an eye, great for destressing). I tried cycling, but didn't like the body shape that came with it. Nice legs with zero upper body (hoenderborsie like way say in Afrikaans).

I gotta say I agree with the trend that going to gym and lifting heavy ass shit or getting super tired is one of the best ways to destress but I wouldn't call it a getaway type of destresser.

I go and almost pop every vein in my pip 3 times a week but still look forward to doing relaxing stuff like eating 3 waffles with my wife and then having KFC for dessert, it's a different kind of destressing you know.

I clean stuff when I'm stressed

gaming, pomping , spirited car driving ... doesn't work ...
100% the same. When I am super stressed and need to relax you will easily find me with earbuds, mf towels and alcohol wipes. Taking 2 hours to thoroughly clean and disassemble the DSTV remote...

Also love detailing the interior of my car. The vents alone can take upwards of an hour. Clean clean clean!

I choose my PC cases now for the convenience of opening and closing them.. I went through 2 cases which simply could not handle the screwing and unscrewing anymore. The best is when I get to clean the servers, one of the most satisfying things is taking a 2 year old dust filled server and cleaning her up. Then I also get to reinstall the OS and get everything working again, so good... I should've been a sysadmin in a different life... But then play becomes work...

Gaming (Forza and PUBG mostly), having a nice cold craft beer every now and again and spending quality time with friends and family.

I like to just get my car and take a leisurely drive to no particular location sometimes.

I also play around with PLC's and robotics in my free time. I would love to have a "Smart Home" system in my house sometime in the future.
