Thanks for your reply, @hopeful33250 Right now I swim a couple of times a week and exercise using a VR game, Beat Saber. I find these helpful for reducing stress. I also do deep breathing when I feel stress getting the better of me and do reflective writing which seems to help me gain a bigger perspective on things.

Hello again @suz1950,

It does sound like you have a lot of activities in place for stress relief and that is just great! I was especially pleased that you mention "reflective writing." I agree that writing does help to keep life's problems in perspective. Do you have a particular method of writing?
