I have found ASMR is a great stress reliever. http://www.asmrstudio.com

wow, thank you for pointing out what calms your stress-level according to foreign countries. some of these methods I couldn't relate to a country before.
me, for my part, have tried another option to reduce my stress, which you can't refer to one specific country. about three weeks ago, a dear friend of mine told me about a website called "your24hcoach" where you can search for a professional coach for your personal problem. After having checked out the webpage I saw that you can contact the coaches directly. I received an answer right away, which was helpful and rather encouraging for me to know, that stress is no such thing that can't be treated. to quickly mention one important advice they gave me: you should always keep and care for your friends, because otherwise you'll have no one to rely on or to talk to and no one who can help you if you are in need. I learnt that it's wrong to neglect your friends because you think there is no time for you to hang out with them. it took long for me to understand that, but it seems quite logical now. maybe you want to check as well

thanks!!

Very interesting. I try to meditate on a daily basis and try to laugh as much as possible, either going to the movies or reading something funny. Laughter is very important for good health and life in general.

i've done many of those mentioned, although i don't do yoga in front of people in a public place! but things like yoga, better breathing, muscle relaxation, sauna, exercise, reading and just being at home with my dog or taking him for a walk [hopefully we never get attacked again] are easy pleasures to do and doesn't cost a lot either, if it costs anything at all!
