I associate the word relax more with an obnoxious, stressful and useless duty than with anything actually relaxing. Guess what contexts I'm most used to hearing it in.

Listening to music, specially trance, chillout, classical, melodic dubstep or real progressive.

And well practising pilates too. And walking.

I see... Well it's essentially the internal version of what I discussed -here-.

Have any of you ever read (or watched) Alice in Wonderland? Well what Alice does is essentially what I do. Except when I do it, people can't normally wake me up, and if I don't pull out myself, then I can become trapped. If I get trapped, then it's pretty much a death sentence, with dehydration being the most likely cause of death.

It suppose from the point of view of someone unused to this form of Autism, it can be a complicated process to wrap your head around. Truth be told, I don't know everything about it myself...

Music, Meditation

I find music, especially harmonics really destress me - I have been listening to Stars Of The Lid's Artificial Pine Arch Song almost every day (several times a day) for the last 5 years. It's harmonic and I find it so soothing.

Also Down by Stars Of The Lid.

You're welcome Earthling.
I have told people about this 'music' before but I usually add the disclaimer that "you need to be alien to enjoy it." but as it turns out, lots of people seem to enjoy it. Who'd have thought. :)

I relax by running my Lionel trains. The sights, sounds and smells take me back to a more simpler time, were I am liked and cared for by everybody. My only worries are keeping the trains on the tracks. I am slowly building a new train layout, I will be able to run 2 trains at the same time when its done. Right now I can run one on the outer loop of track. My trains have been my means to cope, recover from and prevent meltdowns and shutdowns since I was a young boy. Mike

well, first of all wrap myself in a blankie, chain vape while im drinking somthing warm. drawing, netflix and chill.
seriously blankie, tea and watching anime is sometimes almost as good as sex.

Oh you gotta try this:
get the biggest mug you can find.
cocopowder
black coffee
Jagermeister or what ever alcohol you prefer 6 cl
fill up 50 50 with coffe and milk add the cocopowder.
add some brown sugar and stirr.
top it off with some cream and vanilla cones.

Green tea also helps you relax.


I have a daily meditation pratice, where I sit quietly and observe my breath for about 30 min.
it`s the one thing that has helped me the most more than anything.

Some times I listen to Schpoongle or meditative ambient.

Judas, that is the craziest beverage I've ever heard of. You're right, I've gotta try it sometime.

Totally agree with you there.

Can't do alcohol. And, if I lived in Colorado, I'd be choosing another variation of an altered state of mind.
