      I’m a little late here Emily, but I agree, two or three fingers of fine whiskey and some music – classical or rock – generally do the job.  Also, reading!  Getting caught up in a good book is essential to my well being.

      On rare occasion, a bubble bath!  Who doesn’t feel calm soaking in bubbles?? 🙂

      Slip into beautiful lingerie at bedtime but also TV and a wide range of music.

      I have to agree with you Emily!! A good Bourbon, Blues on the stereo and dressed in my favorite chair take all the hassles of the day away. If only life could be so easy.

      Dressing up and doing my hair and makeup help me relax.  Shopping and chatting with the girls are good ways to unwind too.  Watching some tv or listening to music are also relaxing.  All of those activites can be made more relaxing by enjoying some wine with them.

      Same here. Dressing is my main stress releiver. With or without a few bloody marys with a Bush Light. Oh shopping while dressed helps too..

      Hi Emily
      One of my other interests is foraging for wild fruit & berries for Wine making, I also make jams chutney and fruit pies. Anyway I just go off for a country walk or just scouring hedgerows.

        After a long day putting out fires it’s probably best that I restrict my foraging to the liquor cabinet and music library, LOL!

      Sweet tea moonshine and jazz piano by Beegie Adair.  Sadly the world lost Beegie early this year but her music lives on.  If my mood is dark, my music choice switches to Evanescence, or most any song featuring Amy Lee.

          It’s commercially available at a lot of liquor stores, or they can usually order it if you ask.  Sugarlands or Tim Smith are a couple of popular brands.  My favorite is from a small distillery in Branson Missouri called Smith Creek.  Their shine is a higher proof than any other brands I’ve found.  As far as I know they don’t ship.  I live in Oklahoma, it’s about a 6 hour drive for me.  My SO and I make the trip every year or so to restock and we make a weekend of it.  My source for the underground stuff dried up years ago but the commercial brands good enough, legal, and safe.

      Absolutely music calms many of our daily wows.  My satellite radio is always close 👌.. when I’m low.  Oh as mentioned by a few others a glass of wine in hand doesn’t hurt.   Lol.. 🌷

          My second would be Tostitos, restaurant variety. Often refreshments are involved that have the word “Proof” or “% By Volume” in the subtitle and have something to do with that rowdy and irreverent SOB:

        I’ve often said there’s no such thing as a bad potato.  I try to avoid having chips around the house.  They get consumed way too fast!

      For light stress I have a glass of wine, champagne, or draft beer and talk to my wife.  For major stress I have more.  For monster stress I have a boilermaker and listen to old Animals Hits on the jukebox in my semi-darkened game room.  And for Going Back to the Day Stress I put on my old combat boots and go out and do public service asking for the most menial and disliked jobs (usually pot and pan washing at the soup kitchen).  It all usually works out ok for me as long as I don’t put off the treatment for too long a time.  Emily, I hope that you got your spring safely unsprung.  I totaled my semi-new car on Voting Day.  I’m fine, the deer that hit me took off and the car died (an 8 pt buck blew 3 airbags,2 seat belts, 2 lights, a hood, and a grill at 35 mph for the car buffs) .  Sadly, stuff happens, especially around the holidays.  Thanks for being willing and open to share your angst with us.  Here’s to better times.  Hugs, Marg

          Hey Lauren,  It was 28 K and in showroom perfect condition.  I only used it for long drives cause it got 52MPG (a stick shift Mitsubishi Mirage).  The deer jumped off a bluff into traffic. The wrecker took the pieces today.  It may have a new life later as a Toyota.   Like I said, stuff happens.  lol    Marg

      I’m a music obsessive, so it’s not only how I wind down, but how I wind myself up too. Different music, though. My wind down music is often jazz (mostly bebop, some modern), occasionally classical, post rock, late Roxy Music, etc. My tastes are all over the place. Rosé or whiskey, depending on the mood.

      An aside: I quit beer (all carbs really) in September 2021 and basically replaced it with rosé. Our friends at our local would sometimes tease me about it. So, when I came out at a party there not long ago, when someone commented on my dress I’d joke “must have been all that rosé!”🤣

      While I enjoy a nice glass of wine while wearing a sexy dress, or even just lingerie, best keep the wine or alcohol for the up times, not the down times. Music, though can calm or excite the soul.

      Effing stressful Monday….wound tight.  Chillin’ to Massive Attack’s Protection…..some of the best trip hop from the ’90’s.  FINALLY sleep seems possible.

      What do you do to wind down (besides dress obviously)?

      Edit – forgot to mention I did have a little bourbon.  Music is still the best stress reliever for me.

      That’s all.
