|So, you're experiencing some pain and
frustration, huh? Well, sometimes we just need a break. I don't
have any tips that will take the pain away, but do have some suggestions
that will help take your mind off it for a while. So, sit back, have your
favorite drink near by, and prepare to forget why you're here.
Here are a few sites
I've found that have games you can play online for free. In fact,
you can play some of them right here from my site!
Blitz - General free-for-all
Blitz Sports - For you sports nuts out there
Blitz Entertainment - Couch potatoes, this is for you!
Uproar.com has several
online games and you can earn cash by playing! Better yet, you can
enter to win a computer just by registering with them! And as Tom
Peterson of Portland, OR says, "Free is a very good price!" (If you've
seen Mr. Holland's Opus, Tom is the announcer at the parade with
a buzz cut. He owns furniture and electronics stores and is a local
icon.) To get a taste of just one of Uproar's games, Trivia
Blitz, go to one of these games:
Do you watch Jeopardy
of Fortune and think, "I can do better than that!"? Prove
it! You can play these games online, either in a private game or
against an online opponent. No cash prizes here, but it is fun.
Get out some coloring books, some crayons and color! It doesn't matter
what age you are, this is a great way to get your feelings out. Nice
long strokes with pastel colors might help relax you, or, scribbling violently
outside of the lines might help release some of the frustration you're
feeling. Either way, you'll probably feel better when you're done.

drew for me. Click on it to access the full image. Then print
Buy some of those bubbles that you can get at the dime store, find a pleasant
spot outside on a sunny day and blow those bubbles! There's just
something peaceful about watching those bubbles float around.
only is it nice to mush this stuff around on a table or create little critters
with it, but it's a nice thing to squeeze in your fist when you're in pain
or very upset. Sure, you might get some under your fingernails, but
it's better than your fingernails digging into the palm of your hand!
Play an instrument
this might not work if you don't play one. I play the piano and I
find it to be excellent therapy (as long as I can sit on the bench).
If you don't play, find one of those Nature or Solitudes CDs. Have
them play while reading a favorite book.
