You’re sitting at your cubicle. Your co-workers see someone focused intently on the computer in front of them. YOU, on the other hand, see nothing but a blur. Your jaw is so tight that you are grinding your teeth. Your blood pressure is rising. Your temples are pounding. And if you type any harder, your fingers are going to break the keys.
The Spa- How about a little splurge? Head over to the spa for a little pampering. Shear Artistry in Avon will pleasure the ladies with everything from a deep sea detox to mud wraps. And guys can take a little weight off their backs with a good waxing. Oh, give me a break... you know it's time for some manscaping.
Jump- Launching yourself off a bridge isn't the way to go. Skydiving is. It's the kind of stress relief where it's okay to change your mind during the fall... you'll make it out okay. Nothing makes your worries go away like plunging towards the earth really, really fast. Suddenly that TPS report doesn't seem like such a big deal. We found a place to dive in Ellington.
Move It- Shake the stress out. Move your booty in a Zumba class like those we found in Milford or New Haven. It's a hot and spicy dance workout that will burn off frustration and calories. The music will keep your energy cranked all day. Guys, don't give me that look. You'll meet some good looking ladies there. Give it a shot.
Wam, Bam, Slam- Women's Roller Derby. You don't even have to play, you can just watch and your stress will melt away. The game involves a bunch of women on skates essentially beating the crap out of each other. They sure love it... and you will too. They play all over the state and tickets are pretty cheap.
Karaoke- Whether you've been "Shot through the heart", or you "Wanna be sedated", perhaps there's no better way to blow off steam than to throw back a few beers and make a complete fool out of yourself. They've got karaoke all over the state, such as Gotham Citi Cafe in New Haven. But listen, Bon Jovi Jr., keep in mind that the video of your drunken performance WILL end up on YouTube. And your coworkers WILL mock you mercilessly on Monday.
