Yoga and making love.

@OP, if you're feeling stress is taking over making you nervous, you can try some Yogi Breathing exercises.

If you'd like you can put a belt around your chest, and hold it firm with your hands closed in front of you. Then you breath in to your abdomen, and up to your ribcage (the belt helps to feel that you are breathing deeply into the back of your ribcage).
Then exhale from your ribcage, and then your belly will flatten and fall in.
You will have to do this many times until you have a steady flow, at the beginning your breath pattern will be probably bumpy and it will feel a bit awkward... if you master it though, it is an instant stress reliever, and your body and mind will get very calm and relaxed.
Don't try a combination of Yoga breathing exercises and sex- tantric sex-it can be really stressful- it might end up being a bit like the asphyxiation fetish thing?

I also tickle and wrestle people- it's great!

That made me laugh- I hasten to add I only tickle people I know really, really, well.

Don't do what I've just done and spend Sfr.11.90 on a packet of biscuits
I was in a hurry and buying other stuff so that I didn't notice, until I got home, that a simple packet of cantucci biscuits cost that much.
Did they at least come with a bottle of Vin Santo (that you're supposed to dip them in before eating)?

Give them to one of the Swiss who is convinced that price=quality, accidentally leave the rice tag on

The only thing they came with is guilt, when I realized how much I'd spent. I'm still 'smarting from the blow' because it started a whole downward thought spiral about how impossible it's become to continue to live here on a UK£ pension.
My own stupid fault though, spending so much on a packet of biscuits, which I need like a hole in the head

Can you do me a favour, Ceppych?

I can't eat biscuits - not cheap ones, not posh ones, not any ones, except bland, crumbly, "dietary" biscuits.

What I'd love you to do - just for me - is to put the kettle on, make a cup of tea, then open your posh packet of biscuits and enjoy every single one of them. Biscuits are one of the greatest pleasures in life - something most people don't realise until they can't have them any more - and, compared to most luxuries, are very cheap, even at 11.90 CHF a packet.

I'd be chuffed to bits if you could extract every crumb of pleasure out of those biscuits on my behalf. Dunk them, suck them, nibble them, devour them. Have your wicked way with them, as my Uncle Bertrand might have his way with a Swedish au pair.

Then, when you've finished the packet, come back and tell us what they were like. They must be good, surely, to justify a price tag like that?

En guete!

Re: how to avoid stress?

Yes, but she still needs a bottle of Vin Santo to dip them in (they just don't work any other way, they are rock-hard, filled with almonds, and otherwise in-edible).

Thanks DB, but I've flogged them on Ebay.
Just said they were Swiss health-food.
Had to fight off the punters

Well, then you are guilty of false advertising, as they are ITALIAN!

No, it has to be alcoholic.

Porto would be OK, otherwise gin!

If anyone dunks anything in my 20 year old tawny port, there'll be hell to pay.

I don't care how posh their biscuits are...

Tea, on the other hand, was invented for dunking biscuits in.

Very nice, I agree with you.

But I think, doing sport is something necessary to avoid stress

Re: how to avoid stress?

If none of the above work, I've been reliably informed by many other EF users that they were able to join the mile high club in a single seat airplane, I'm not quite sure what this entails mind you.....
