Blowing off steam
When I get stressed I just feel that I have too much adrenaline, that I can’t hold myself in my hands. It feels like I need to let my angriness or sadness out just the same way factories emit gases.
A special place
I sit on my grey bicycle, turn on my iPod and go down the mountain I live on. Usually, I pick a place that is in another part of the city and where I have some pleasant memories from.
As I ride to that place, I am most likely to cry, but by the time I get to the place I am too exhausted to be sad, angry or stressed. My body is so tired that my mind is absolutely clear from any thoughts. I take time not to make any impulsive, unreasonable decisions.
A new perspective
By the time I get home, I already have some ideas how to move forward or solve the problem. I have found the best ideas come to your mind, when you are calm and not putting too much pressure on yourself.
