    No rituals really, but at this time of the year a pub garden with a few mates is fantastic.

    I brew my own craft beer. then every 3-8 weeks I sample my brew... many times in a night...sometimes its autonomous..i dont even know im sampling it anymore.. cos you know..automated testing is part of my cognitive processes now

    I play video games to calm the nerves. I rage enough in multi-player games to let go of all my frustration.

    Long walks. Helps me every time.

    Hitting the gym (if not at work) or taking a walk break (at work). It helps to turn off the brain just for a little while.

    Always found going for a run helped me clear my mind. That was until my knee screwed up! Doh!

    Are we not allowed to say we smoke weed or all of you just a better person than me?

    If I have had a rough day I'll either fight with my two boxers, annoy my wife, drink my brew, listen to an audio book, or go bowling. If it has been a rough week, I'll either brew beer, go camping, go to the dunes, or get stupid drunk and chill with my wife.

    Gym during lunch and side projects. I find that when I'm stressed at work, often it's cause I want to code something more fun or just something for me.

    @Livewire1407 of course, weed is clearly the best way to unwind

    I sacrifice women and children. Then I go back to coding. Usually I just go back to coding though

    I mean I knit to calm down, not even embarrassed it's really nice to sit down and do something, just like autonomous, no thought or anything and you can just let your mind wander
