Try to think of things that involved both sides of your body - which is why exercise is such a great idea. Making bread - rolling the dough, etc. works - playing with playdoh should work too.

I like puzzles - and I totally agree about the loud music. Anything that invades the body and brain and pushes out the running thoughts. I think that is why many typical decompression techniques don't work for me, they leave too much quiet and too much space for thinking.

As far as a relaxation technique, I really like the tense and relax style. Start with your toes - and curl them and then relax. Do this all the way up your body, tensing muscles completely and then letting go.

My middle son, who is Mr. High Energy, uses hot foods (spicy) to calm down. Go figure...
