Wild lettuce and vitamin B complex, all natural. Also Lithium Orotate, which is also non-pharma.

Get into nature, even in your backyard or local park. Watch the animals with no care in the world.

Swallow your pride and get a job, possibly beneath you. Much easier to monkey ranch onto a better job when you're working. Occupational therapy and all that.

Be grateful for what you have.

Kiss the past goodbye and make peace with it.

Forgive , even the most rotten ones and if required, yourself.

Best of luck to you. Worked for me.

You can come to terms with who you are, and gain some brass and understand that you wouldn't have gotten this far if you weren't meant to.

Maybe some credence to a higher power should be acknowledged.

Step outside into nature, breathe deeply and really look at that tree, flower, ant, blade of grass etc. Watch a leaf fall and realize how blessed you are to see it fall.

Feel the breeze on your skin and realized how lucky you are.

You are not sitting in an air-conditioned office under fake lighting spending hours look at a screen while pushing buttons.

Watch your thinking, are the thoughts you are having really yours or are they a programmed response? Do they contain/result in love? I'm not talking about ego based love with all its wants and needs, I'm talking about essence based love that has no needs, it just is. It's what hold the fabric of existence together...JMO

Once you can observe your thinking, you can then decide if you want to continue your current line of thought or "let it go", especially, when you realize that you are in a "negative thinking spiral", only you can change your mind.

peace

Go unclog a sewer pipe with your bare hands. Very relaxing.
The purpose of meditation is not that.

You might have to call them, say you applied. That works sometimes and shows you care about the job.

I thn=ink the two biggest issues driving my stress is the selling of a deceased family members house and now the legal bullshit that has surrounded it... and second, I lost my job about 10 months ago and cant seem to find another one even though Ive applied hundreds of times... I dont have any debt and my sig other works so its not a problem... I just feel worthless as a man..

A few years ago the oldest man in the world was some British guy. His advice was not to worry about tomorrow/future, deal with tomorrow when it comes.

I watch movies I check out from the library, and play solitaire.

GLP is cathartic, where I get out my aggressions, and make off color jokes.

I can't express myself any other place like I do on GLP.

Fuck you for asking!

No caffeine. Keep a schedule. Make time to exercise, but don’t make it a competition.

Hobbies. Something you love to do, not have to do. Needle point, model airplanes, playing an instrument, etc. I make banjos. Actually, I make all kinds of stuff. It lowers stress, anxiety, and focuses my mind. I have a golden retriever, she is wonderful but sometimes tries my patience.

I don’t meditate per say, but I do have quiet time every day to relax and refocus.

Other than that, some bourbon, a blowjob and a nap is quite relaxing.
Smoke me a kipper, I’ll be back for breakfast.

I think that mental stress can be addressed with meditation, but there are also supplements that eliminate it.

Polygala tenuifolia
KSM-66 Ashwagandha Extract
L-Theanine

I would say this stack can be a life changer

I recommend getting a semi-decent road bike and start training with it. Riding uphill will focus your mind so that you’ll have no time to think about mental stress.
