Do you have any particular ways to manage your stress levels without alcohol? I believe I have been using alcohol far too much for this purpose, and it's not a healthy or productive way to live. It's bad for my body, relationships and mental health. I'd love to hear some ideas as to how I can manage my stress (I have a very stressful job) in healthier ways. I try to get regular exercise but I must admit I am not the best at sticking to that! We've had a very harsh winter here so hopefully once spring arrives I can get outside some more. Does anyone have any hobbies or activities they find particularly calming and refreshing?
