How do you deal with stress or a stressful situation?

This week we tackle how each of us deal with the different stresses we have in our lives.

That balance of just trying to get everything done in everyday life is stressful enough. Everyone's going a million miles an hour and doing the best they can. That's all anyone can do is the best they can. There's always something else which needs to be done, and sometimes that thing can be done tomorrow.

Everything from cheeky beers to meditation, exercise and journalling gets a mention as different ways we try or have tried to deal with stress.

I look at him and think, oh man, I just, I wish I could be doing that right now. But then I look around the house and go, bang, lawns, trees are down, all these other things. The guilt just kicks in and I go and get to work on those tasks rather than ... I'll put the feet up for an hour if I can."

Daddy Eats Last is where we discuss the challenges of being a man in modern society....and whatever the hell that even means.
