How Do You Chill?

...and don't say "in the fridge."  That'd sound like a bad pun, and you know we don't use those...

You could find tips for relaxing anywhere, but what we want to know today is how YOU stop stress.  Is it through scarfing candy, like you hear on Tuesday's show, or do you prefer to hit the trail or the ramp or the field or the court or the game or the book or the gym?

Let's say it's Friday afternoon and you've just finished final exams.  What do you do to unwind?

    I would go to the mall and hang out with my friends, probably. Especially if final exams just ended. Then I would worry about what I got on the exams.

    I believe eating candies does help people to relieve stress because of sugar but they are so addicting. Also, when I think about the consequences, I would think about playing video games or doing exercise for my benefit.

    I stop my stress by having ice cream with my friends or watching a movie with them. I think it helps because you feel more comfortable hanging out with the people you must enjoy.

    I just chill by playing video games and watching television like a couch potato, but it does take my mind off the thing I'm stressed about, even if my strategy is unhealthy.

    Candy is good anytime!

    March 31, 2009 at 8:03 am |

    Candy is a good stress reducer not just because of the taste but because of the sugar low later on. Don't get me wrong, candy tastes great.

    I like to go to the movies or just lay around and listen to music when I'm stressed out.

  13. Alex

    myself i don't fell that having an intake of candy lets me relax i relax by going outside running around and shooting baskets or just walking in the woods because stress is something that comes from school and homework for me. candy just overloads you with surag and you can't calm down right after just take you stress outside and shoot some hoops is what I do.

    I don't chill by eating candy. If I ate enough, I would end up looking as crazy as those news anchors. I relax by daydreaming for a few seconds.

    March 31, 2009 at 9:04 am |
  17. Brett

    To chill out I watch a lot of TV and hangout with friends. Other times though I’ll go and work on my truck and what not just so I have something to focus on so that I do not go crazy. If I’m not doing any of that I’m generally reading something either out of a book or some type of article.

    I was thinking of becoming a vet but now I want to own a candy store. If the economy was like this in twenty years The candy store would keep me out of stress. And I now for a fact candy comes me down but I gave it up for lent. Son now I am stressed almost 24/7.

    I love candy and all, its really good. But it will make me fat so I try not to eat it. I have not have candy in a long time. I'd rather do something else.

    March 31, 2009 at 9:30 am |
  22. Courtney

    That is the best way to release your stress; because if your parents are stressed and they buy candy the chances are you will get some too!

  126. Teacher Nicci's Class

    The popular vote in class was to do some form of exercise, whether it be to run, bike or skateboard. Candy adds a short burst of energy but leaves you feeling just as stressed and even more tired in the end.

  127. George

    I usually just sit down or go outside to relax. Once in awhile I'll be stressed enough to have a mini-Resse Cup or something, but not alot.

    March 31, 2009 at 3:33 pm |
  128. Schills

    March 31, 2009 at 4:21 pm |
  131. Marissa

    When I get home from school after a big exam, I usually just plop down right in front of my wonderful TV in my room and play some good old video games, like Animal Crossing or Zelda. Something with good music that's just nice to play through.

    March 31, 2009 at 4:35 pm |

    Candy makes almost everyone happy including myself and I would love to just sit back, relax, open a coke, and have some chocolate.

    March 31, 2009 at 4:44 pm |
  134. justin

    I have no doubts in the candy remedy, but when it comes to calming nerves reading an incaptavating book or creating the words of my own novel takes the cake.

    March 31, 2009 at 4:47 pm |
  135. Jenna

    I have turned to candy a lot these days, but I dance every day, and that helps me forget everything in the outside world.

    Maybe these people just have a sweet tooth now you never know when it will strike.

    March 31, 2009 at 4:55 pm |
  137. Jess

    Well technically we can't chill in the fridge but we can chill in the snow or outside at five in the morning. But personally curling up in a cold room with music and a good book or just taking a break with a hot shower is relaxing enough.

    March 31, 2009 at 5:03 pm |
  138. Matt

    I LIKE CHOCOLATE!!!!!!!
    I think That Chocolate Could Be Consider as a Stress Reviler . Cause is Always be consider as my Faviorte

  141. Hali

    On a Friday afternoon after hard stressful exams, I'd hit the beach. I'd have dinner with the friend. And somewhere in there we'd listen to our favorite music. Good enough for me!

    March 31, 2009 at 5:43 pm |
  142. lauryn

    If I could eat candy every day I would, but I am already fat as a cow, and I am sure you would know all about that.

  148. bryce/brucey

    i think candy can chill you because it is so good and it takes your mind off the stress that you have and you just think about how good the candy tastes and nothing else

    March 31, 2009 at 7:17 pm |
  149. Ariana

    I would unwind by relaxing watching TV or reading a book. Then, to celebrate I would probably have a candy bar.

    March 31, 2009 at 7:18 pm |

    Once I get home I text , chill with friends , eat candy , and watch a good movie .

    March 31, 2009 at 7:36 pm |
  151. GYMMMY

    Candy is good for short-term bliss. I find video games (non violent for becoming less stressed), TV, or movies are good for unwinding and tend to last longer than snarfing down a chocolate bar.

    March 31, 2009 at 7:44 pm |
  152. grace

    i love cheese so that's how i chill

    I know candy helps my mom because she always comes to my room and eats all of mine!

    March 31, 2009 at 8:20 pm |
  155. Chilton

    I talk to friends. It's really a great way to let everything out to someone you can trust. Or I play my guitar... I write songs about my life... they suck though.

  160. Kassie

    I chill by either just sitting outside (when nice out) it helps me relax and just think about nature. I also listne to music. I'll just be rocking out in my backyard and people are just staring.

    March 31, 2009 at 9:26 pm |
  161. vignessh

    I think candy is comfortable in the troubling economy but you have to watch the candy prices

    March 31, 2009 at 9:26 pm |
  162. Camryn (aka squitito!)

    Frankly I find chocolate and candy very relaxing!!!! AND FUN! AND DELICIOUS!!! AHHHHH!!! I LOVE IT!!!!
    But I think the thing that calms me down most would to be to play with Rubik's cube!!! I used to just mess around with it for a few seconds at my friend's house and get frustrated with them, but then I took time (5 minutes more like it) and got a one side done and and I was like "OMG!! I did'nt throw it across the room!" And ever since then they have been relaxing!!!!
    (candy!)

    I like to just sit somewhere and listen to music. I cant go any where and NOT listen to music. Whenever I am sad or really mad, I listen to some music, and it calms me...

  168. Rhianna

    well although alot of people choose to eat chocloate to help relax them, I find playing sports or going outside to hang with my neighbors and shoot some hoops. BUT I dont think that's for everyone say maybe chocolate is a good idea...lol

    April 1, 2009 at 10:03 am |
  169. Melissa

    Reading a book is usually best for me, and eating all that candy and food is just unhealthy. Most people shouldn't use food as a comfort item, otherwise they may become overweight.

    April 1, 2009 at 10:49 am |
  170. Candy

    Well what i do to chill is to read a book, hang out with my friends or go to the mall. what would you do?

  171. jessica

    I chill by going swimming in the rain! Although it sounds weird it very cool to see the rain falling under water.

    April 1, 2009 at 12:20 pm |
  172. Karisa

    I relax by listening to calming music. Some people relax by getting a massage. I don't really scarf down candy do release stress.

    April 1, 2009 at 1:23 pm |
  173. Makayla

    Afterschool I would go hang out with friends or relax in the bathtub. The most relaxing thing for me to do is to sit and read my book. What is your favorite thing to do Carl?

    April 1, 2009 at 1:23 pm |
  174. Elizabeth

    What I usually do is either grab a book on a nice day and sit outside, or I go for a walk all by myself out in a field. If none of that works, that's when I bring out the candy!

    April 1, 2009 at 1:23 pm |
  175. parker

    I love candy and I think it helps with stress I eat a lot of candy maybe thats why my dad calls me the "candy man"

    April 1, 2009 at 1:23 pm |
  176. Jessica

    To release my stress I like to go outside and sit on the ground and write in my journal. It makes me relax and it also helps me to concentrate on something different than my stress. I also like to sit down with a book and read.

    April 1, 2009 at 1:24 pm |
  177. L*OG@N

    I normally chill on the weekends by baking cookies, or something like that. On the weekdays though I am normally after school doing sports especially since right now is track and softball season. Then when I get home from school I go outside and practice my sports or something like that. I also really like to read when I get bored.

    April 1, 2009 at 1:24 pm |
  178. *Katie*

    Yeah candy and chocolate is good it is not the way I like to relax. I would WAY rather chill in the sun and get a good tan than have a candy bar. I also do sports and just hang with my friends to chill.

    April 1, 2009 at 1:29 pm |

    I usually go on the computer and watch the latest episode of cnn student news if I missed it at school.

    April 1, 2009 at 2:56 pm |
  186. Daniel

    Hey Carl I know it a little late but my journalism class just pulled the best prank on our school. We made an entirely fake newspaper with fake articles and things like word searches with no words in it. The entire school was pranked. We all managed to keep it under raps for 2 weeks and it all came together. It was definitely one of the best pranks ever pulled off by journalist. Just wondering if you could shout that out on CNN because we think the whole thing was pretty great.

    April 1, 2009 at 3:58 pm |
  187. Jessie

    I either hang out with my friends or go for a relaxing bike ride through my neighborhood.

  188. Herbert

    I would so chill by watching tv and going on the computer and playing online games and watching cnn news and stuff like that. Also i love pepermints there tasty like a lifesaver.

    April 1, 2009 at 4:28 pm |
  189. Kari

    This may sound crazy but anything to do with history can take my mind off the days troubles and just help me relax. There is something about studying how people used to live and comparing it with how live now that I just can't get enough of. It makes me happy that I got to go and take that final instead of putting in a 10 hour work day for less than one buck a day like kids used to back before there where labor laws.

    April 1, 2009 at 6:34 pm |

  193. Benjamin

    I think that when people feel stressed, they could use some sweet treats to calm down and unwind. But, if you get worked up a lot, then it's time to hit the gym!

    April 1, 2009 at 7:12 pm |
  194. Haena

    Well, Carl, if you want to relax... just take a nap. Just lay down and think about something great. Don't do something that needs hard thinking and lots and lots of energy. What do you do, Carl?

    April 1, 2009 at 8:21 pm |
  195. Utau

    I go home and I write. I could also just go and lay on my bed, (My bed's comfortable I like lieing on it!) and if I've just finished exams? Most likely i won't relax, I go home and do homework... *Sigh*

    April 1, 2009 at 8:31 pm |
  196. Dezy

    The way I "chill" is with my friends usualy at my house, their house, or maybe even at school. But at our houses we watch happy movies (and eat chocolate!).

    April 1, 2009 at 9:20 pm |
  197. Destiny

    I either eat chocolate or watch happy movies with my friends. My advice for anyone would be......... hang out with people who loves to be around you. And don't forget to eat chocolate!

    April 1, 2009 at 9:25 pm |
  198. Chantelle

    I like to chill by watching TV, sometimes for 3 to 4 hours! Talking to friends, dancing, pigging out on food, watching movies, hanging out with family, music, and my hamster all get me out of my stressed mood!

    April 1, 2009 at 9:48 pm |
  199. Kaitlin

    Well as much fun as going to the mall and hanging with friends is, we don't have any good stores in our teensy little town so i am forced to read, watch tv, play bball, and all that stuff that kid's don't do.

    April 1, 2009 at 11:40 pm |
  200. jeff

    When i want to unwind and get unstressed i go and hangout with my friends. We either go outside and be active or chill in the house and play video games. Either one of these things really help me forget about the stress because im to bust having a good time.

    April 2, 2009 at 2:05 am |
  201. Cheyanne

    What I do to make stress go away is get my animals in my room an get them ready for a long walk an get their things around an ask me mom an then go to the lake for a long walk for about two hours to the lake an spend time around the lake an then walk home a give them a bath an then eat dinner an then go to bed if I don't have any home work....

  205. Brielle

    When I relax and relieve stress I write. I write poetry or how I feel. When I write how I feel I only write the first letter of each word. I do that so that when I read it over I don't remember what I was mad about. For example, if I was mad about how much homework I had I would write I H T M H W! That means I had too much homework. I also relax by listening to music. My music is my life. I turn on my pink Mp3 player and think. I also watch television, mostly comedy because I love to laugh and also make others laugh. I believe that laughter is the best medicine.

    April 2, 2009 at 10:45 am |
  206. Cecilia

    Pasta helps relieve stress. I read about it in a book for all girls, saying how pasta contains, I think it was enzymes that help you feel better and not stressed.

    The way I chill is I read, draw, or just sit and think.

    Alice- I love to call up some friends maybe hang out. I also love to read because it takes me to a totally different planet that lets me forget all of my worries and troubles. Sometimes I will go outside but I have to say my major stress reliever is definetly reading!

    Hannah- I am involved in alot of sports/activities.....Karate, Gymnastics, Volleyball, etc. I also play the trombone! Alice and I always hang out and that is my anti stress reliever.

    XP

    April 3, 2009 at 2:48 pm |
  223. Andrew

    Well, to chill out for me, I normally call a friend, play some video games, or shoot some hoops. The stresses of the week can really get to me sometimes and those three things really seem to help me chill.

    April 3, 2009 at 2:54 pm |
  224. Cloe

    I sit down in my big brown chair and switch on my Wii. Now THAT'S relaxing!

    Sleeping, and eating sweet things for relieve the stress. I always sleep when I am furious. And I eat a lot of sweet things when I prieview the test. Test always makes me ill humor so I want eat sweet things.

  229. minjae

    I usually sleep for many hours instead of hanging out with friends. I think it is not late to go to a mall or theater after having my own break time.

    April 5, 2009 at 4:46 am |

    My way to chill is by reading a good book on the couch. You can leave without going anywhere.

  232. steven

    After my exams, I usually do many things. Sometimes I'll go home and turn on the T.V..(Which my mom might not like). Other times I go home and ride my bike. Or I'll go and play soccer with friends. Anything to keep me from bickering with siblings!

    April 6, 2009 at 8:45 am |
  233. Cody

    I listen to music and ride my bike alot. But most of the time i sleep. I dont know, I'll roam around my neighborhood too when im bored.

  234. Jeremiah

    To "chill" I like to sit down and read a good book. Two good books I just read were "Tunnels" and the following book "Deeper". Either that or I play online games. It's really fun to play Fantastic Contraption, and the Powder Game online.

    April 6, 2009 at 8:55 am |
  235. Jess

    Sitting in the fridge sounds cool "Ha ha". But really a great way to relax for me would be to curl up with a great book. Also sitting up on the roof of my house watching the clouds go by is very relaxing (as long as you don't fall off! )

    I chill by sitting back remote, drink, and laptop in hand playing some video games. Just laying back on my bed with some cartoons, Kool-aid, and the internet. I usually end up watching something that'll give me a good laugh. Also Watermelon-Kiwi is the BEST Kool-aid.

    To chill after finals I would probably relax and listen to music. As long as it's not quiet, because I dont think I'd be able to stand any more silence then we already have while we are taking finals. Either that or I would hang out with some friends at the mall.

    To unwind, I'd do something fun, but relaxing. After an exam or test, I'd probably head over to the beach with some friends, or see a movie. I would make sure i do something to get my mind off of school so i could just have a good time.

    For me chilling is clean and simple. I take a nap. I have very busy days and nights that seem to leave me tired all the time, so whenever i have a good 30 minutes to myself i take a nap to gain back my energy for a more productive day.

    I like to hang out with my friends by either reading or playing outside.Playing with friends, throwing rocks, playing baseball, watching movies, hanging out with family, listening to music, and my goldfish all get me out of my stressed mood!

    I usually just chat with friends online or listen to music. Either that or a practical joke on someone is always good and hilarious! Or i just call up friends and go hang out. Watching my dog chase anything that moves is hilarious too!

    i'd probably draw while listening to "Poker Face" by Lady Gaga and "Viva La Vida" by Coldplay while drawing anime and cartoons and stuff. The tunes just seem to improve my drawing. It's so soothing and peaceful.

    Most people would say that they would go home and sleep, but i would go home and play my mmorpg (massive multiplayer online role playing game) with my friends. Either that or i would go somewhere with my friends because your friends are the people that make you the happiest (besides your family). Or if you don't feel like doing anything with people then take a walk and clear your mind (only if the weather is nice).
