    Started NoFap sometime in August of 2017. One Whole year porn free and masturbation free. I learned so many things through noFap.

    Now my problem. Stress.

    I remember that masturbation used to alleviate my stress.


    But lately the stress has been building up. I need to figure out a healthy way to manage it. Without going back to masturbating.

    *there are things I will allow that may be considered unhealthy that I may consider to do in moderation to relieve stress, but I don’t want masturbation to be one of them*

    How do you relieve your stress?

    Congratulations! A one-year streak is a really great achievement, well done!

    I personally deal with stress in two ways, depending on the kind of stress.

    If it's that really intense stress, that you can physically feel; the sort that makes you pace up-and-down and want to scream; I exercise, until I collapse! Such a great way to get all that pent-up energy out.

    If it's that little stress in the back of your mind, that just hums quietly in the background; I meditate, I'll put on a Solfeggio (like the one I've linked below), I'll count as I breathe, I'll force myself to be hyper-aware of the feeling and sounds and smells around me, and once I'm in the moment I'll list in my head all the positive things I've achieved today or this week and all the things I am thankful for.



    Hope this helps!
