So, being that stress is bad for everyone and especially bad for those of us with PsA, I was wondering what others do to unwind and relieve stress.
In the past I would go to the range and spend a couple of hours shooting my pistols and rifles. That’s not really an option at the moment. I’m not one hundred percent certain I would be able to hang on to my 9mm, to say nothing of the powerful calibers. I’m guessing the next day wouldn’t be a lot of fun either.
Some evenings I will pour myself a small glass of wine (usually moscato or port) and SIP it over a half hour or so with no tv/phone/internet/talking or other interruptions. That’s pretty relaxing but I have to be very careful combining alcohol with some of the medications I’m on. I did discuss with a pharmacist and the said to just keep it away from the tramadol and the meds that help me sleep.
Obviously, snuggling up with my little boy is very relaxing but he’s usually asleep by the time I get home.
A hike in the woods(when my feet are up to it) is also great for relaxing.
What do you guys do to relax?
