Mostly, I play guitar (or bass or drums).
I don't usually do it specifically to unwind - I just play because I like playing. But it definitely has the side effect of relaxing me.
Quoting Itsjustme (Thread starter): Typically up the Pacific Coast Highway to Santa Monica or Malibu. How about you?
When I lived in the Boston area, I would frequently go on drives to unwind. I'd just follow random windy back roads for miles. I just don't have as much desire to do that in LA - I'd have to drive for an hour just to get to random windy back roads.
Rofl. Although I don't like the sound of the gym, the other option is definitely a good one (tried and tested )
Apart from that, when I need to relax, I have a glass of milk, listen to music and read. Either one at a time or all together. I used to love writing short creative stories, and am beginning to get back into doing that
First Class passengers are my favourites. They can't get any further forward without an ATPL.

The message you were about to post is too short and probably not of any higher value to the topic at hand. You should think long and hard before posting a message in this forum and make it detailed and a valuable addition to the topic discussed.
Did you ever read on your birth certificate that life is fair? Thats cause its not there.

1. Playing sports with the kids and coaching . Right now I spend allot of time getting my team ready .. I love it I love all of it. And I love being with my kids ... they are all at a great age for doing all kinds of things. The baseball season is winding down and its time for football baby ! My son starts practice June 1st , so we are running allot working on strength and lateral power work outs. Just seeing them grow up ... grow stronger and listening to their ideas and thoughts is a wonderful experience .
2. Fishing in Mexico ... getting ready for it, last week of May hopefully
3. Girlfriend .. 's....
4. Boxing... Hitting the heavy bag ... it is still the best psychology ever
You dig the hole .. I fill the hole . 100% employment !

Sitting in front of the computer, and sometimes playing the guitar. However I also found that driving has a soothing effect on me sometimes, even though I tend to swear at the idiots on the road (e.g. those, who overtake me while on a mountain road, knowing that no overtaking is allowed on a mountain road).
In Hamburg, one thing I wish to resume is my frequent rides through the rapid transit and bus system of the HVV. I used to do that all the time when I was a kid.

I posed this question to a guy at work. Now, you should know, this is one of the meekest, mildest guys you'd ever want to meet. His way of unwinding after a particularly stressful day on the job is to go to our workout room and "Pummel the crap of the heavy bag". To each their own.
