Often I've had stress which wouldn't go away no matter what I tried. Sometimes it was something obvious to address, like that time when I asked to get banned, but that's not always the case. Sometimes the thing that made my stress disappear surprised me.
Stress-cures that surprised me:
-Taking the first vitamins. (that day I didn't care about anything, go figure)
-Doing physical exercises first time in like forever.
-Doing mental exercises first time in like forever.
-Someone asking me how I'm feeling.
Those first 4 were a major letdown when I learned that they didn't work the next time but something else did. They broke a long ongoing stress at their times though.
The 5th one often works one way or the other, and the 6th one was so unexpected that it caused this thread.
Has there ever been a stress cure in your life that caught you off guard? I want to learn about them.
