What calms or relaxes you?
 
this forum relaxes me! and music in general always relaxes me =)
 
Certain music, certain situations, a good best friend(dog), reading certain things, and a soft back rub from the wife help. other things maybe later

and you?

Same here except for the run or walk, I don't dig that. To add, bubbles in my bath, being by the ocean, I lurve the sound of water, and a purring cat in my lap.
 
Substance abuse.
Running.
Hot showers.
Being alone.
 
Anything that engages me enough to stop me from detached thinking.

Watching anime is probably the best cure (really any fantasy story). If I'm really wound up, I need to exercise first before anything will work.
 
bit of a late post from me :) but ah well ;D
Listening to music relaxes me, reading relaxes me, thinking relaxes me, and being around my boyfriend relaxes me. :)
 
sunsets,
soft music,
low soft voices,
whispering,
singing,
being alone with a good book,
yoga,
meditation,
long walks,
soft light.
The scent of lavender/jasmine,
Prayer,
The sound of a pencil writing,
The soft clatter of typing
