it's nice to see somebody using my tricks!
a nice walk in the park usually slows me down a little in happy hippie mode,
if I need to sleep but cannot due to tension/sickness/dizzyness... I tend to
put my head under the sheets in a semi-fetal position taking deep slow full
breaths using both chest and diaphragm: tends to preserve body heat, lower
blood oxygen levels... the noxious gasses tend to help as well but that's
not official and cannot be confirmed or denied...

I'm not a physician, and do it at my own risk... the best way to combat
stress, is to avoid it as much as possible
