You make sure to have some good enough options that you like easily available. To some people a trip to the gym will be great stress relief. If going to the gym feels like an insurmountable obstacle, have a list of some workouts that you can do from home. Having some meals that you have cooked and frozen makes an easy option. Having ingredients on hand for a simple meal makes it easier. If you want pizza, keep a pizza on hand, but perhaps a single serving pizza instead of a giant one and have a box or mix of frozen vegetables right with it. Heat and eat. You have other coping and relaxing mechanisms available.

-google first. ask questions later.

In an intense crisis, I pray. In day-to-day depression, I overeat and pray.

I just take a deep breath and tell myself that I am not going to be a reactor to an unpleasant situation. I prefer to operate with logic.

In order to answer your question, I have to decide: what would a "moment of crisis" be for me nowadays?

Every now and then, these days, I have a nasty interaction with someone which leads me into feelings of anger and depression. It reminds me of clashes with my father when I was little.

The following things help some:
• taking a nap: my body gets to slow down and relax and my subconscious can handle the issues better with ME out of the way.
• telling my wife about it. sometimes she doesn't have any insight or solution to offer, sometimes she does. but just sharing it with her lightens the load some.
• exercise. nothing like those exercise endorphins!

Discipline...yes, I think Niteman has it. I maintain a regular schedule of exercise, which helps me destress when needed. I also don't keep binge foods (salty snacks, candy, etc) in the house.

Resisting temptation to overeat or slack off on exercise, or for that matter, anything you know to be wrong can be turned around with training and discipline. Build habits and rely on them, especially when you don't want to. I find that rather than waiting for motivation to strike I'm much better off doing (or not doing) whatever it is because it's right and it's what I've been fighting and training for. I also find that beating temptation head to head actually provides that elusive motivation I was looking for. So..., My answer is rely on discipline.
