If I can manage to go outside of the house, I really like to go to my local pool hall and play billiards for a couple hours.

If I want to stay home, I usually try to lose myself in a book. This is wonderful for me. I'm not sure if others can relate but it really takes me out of myself/ my current situation and helps me calm down. I find it very therapeutic to get lost in a story.

Other than that, I will tend to my bonsai trees. This is a curious one because a lot of the time tending to them physically would actually do more harm than good, so I check the soil, water them if they need it, and look for new growth and admire it. No matter what, this has always proven to be very calming to me.

Reading helps some, so does music and exercise, and distractions sometimes help.
