Walking for miles, time with the other half of me, or music of any kind. Or all together.

I find that lighting up usually helps me calm down... Also music, swimming and going for a drive tend to help.

Listen to classical music like Schuberts Ave Maria or Delibes Duo des fleurs. Or run. Running releases endorfins(not sure if its an english word) which makes you happy.

Music lightens me up best. Or Star Trek, even better. Not many other things can. Socially, in real life, I rarely talk, people consider me to be strict, stiff and cold to a certain level. But I'm not the one for chatter normally and it's hard to say that to someone in their face.

I understand . Well I do enjoy watching movies, and listening to music, and working out . That is all I do so far.

I used to be quiet, and uptight. Until I really got into Sales.

Once I made a point of putting a smile on my face, and greeting everybody I met, things began to change.

Once I started to hang around new people, and listen to their stories, I began to feel less uptight, and more content. Plus, I was really tired of being uptight, and depressed all the time.

Finally, once I started making an effort to appear "happy", or "upbeat" for the customers, and co-workers, I forgot that it was an act... I started cracking jokes, and just having fun. I put a grin on my face, and just acted the fool. I threw some one liners...

I told this one girl to give me a few days to breathe, before she started singing. Then I threw in a snazzy comeback, "'Cause I know that once you do, you'll take my breath away."

There I found the answer. Be an upbeat friend, and find some upbeat friends. Just some buddies to hang out with, and have a good time.

Force yourself to loosen up, and in time you will. The more you try, the sooner you will loosen up. A job in sales/retail will help, especially if you have somebody you can learn from. Also, Don't be afraid to practice in front of a mirror. You develop a good smile, and people will notice...

When I started, I was Joe Somebody. Just a fat kid, with too much hair. Quiet, uptight,... Now? Well, now I'm Mr. Charisma.

Whatever you do, its all about Repetition, Consistency, and a "Can Do Attitude". You can DO it!

I either play a game, go for a walk (granted the weather isn't bad), or just call up a friend.

Some soda seems to help too.
