This is one of the things I think I can gladly say I do best. If I need to relax, my order of operation is usually as follows:
shower (if after work)
When the rest of that is all taken care of, sometimes I’ll read on my 10 year old stack of guitar player magazines, or just fashion a pillow-chair on my bed and play guitar til I get sleepy. It’s really easy to chill myself out just by playing open, airy sounding chord progressions by fingerpicking and using as many open strings as possible. Sometimes I think that I don’t worry enough when it comes to my responsibilities at college; that I spend too much time chilling. I hear a lot of people stress out about the things that theywill end up doing eventually. In the long run, I think it pays off to keep a level head and a relaxed position. I may think differently in the years to come, but for now I won’t fix what isn’t broken.
