..you've got a really bad urge to hurt yourself and you'll all worked up and stressed, what do you do to calm yourself down?

Personally, I have to listen to the sound of rain. I have a CD which is just the sound of rain, I listen to it all the time, helps relax me.

What about you guys?

When I feel a urge, I tell myself to take 5 minutes out and just lie down on my bed or sit down. I try to go work through the urge and find out what's causing it and think of ways to distract myself. I have a list of alternatives on paper that I find help me and I do one of them and I try to focus all my negative energy into something healthy and won't cause any damage.

I like to sing and dance to get out that negative energy. I love turning up the music full blast (probably annoying neighbours in the process ) and just listening to the lyrics in the song and think about them. I also like to write my feelings down in a journal. I try to do something I enjoy. Talking to someone helps me get through the urge and takes my mind off the urge.

I talk(rant/yell/cry) to a friend, or play Fable on the 360- killing bandits and pixies always helps me calm down
