My favorite thing to do is to stay up late and listen to the radio.
The black, and the music... it's a truly calming effect. It's my favorite part of life besides soda. Or my two best friends. Oh gosh. I have no life.
Whats your favorite thing to do?

I have other people's signatures stuck off, so I can't ever seem them. Oh well.
It's rare in my house for there to be no one but me home, and thus, no noise. I like it when there's no background tv or background voices and I can sit here and do my thing with the window open and the sound of the birds on our feeders outside keeping me company. It's very calming.
Before I moved back to a suburban home, my house had a lot of empty land & empty woods behind it, so back then I enjoyed taking long walks to clear my head.
I live in a rather rural spot in my state fortunately, so I get to enjoy solitude and quite.
I have a few things I enjoy.
As of this year I started listening to a chillout radio channel, as I read it helps relieve anxiety and tensions. I had troubles where my mind would flare up just as I was trying to sleep, causing me to be up for hours at times. This fixed that.
The station is one of several stations by a host that deals in various genres of electronic music tastes, including D&B, Liquid D&B, chiptune, and such. I love to lay back and just listen to music, but I don't always do so. I've gone to sleep a few times imagining a sort of Halo 1 menu music chanting song. Was very relaxing. Only every so often do i need to.
I also enjoy Jersey Cotton bed sheets. I typically have the one sheet and a comforter on top of that, and if left alone, the sheets have a nice breezy cool temperature between them, yet still just warm enough, and I will spend hours oversleeping and just letting the whatever dreams that want to flow, flow. Its typically hard for me to find them, and sets run about $20~$30, 3-piece. Worth it.
Used to enjoy a futon, but if it is not supported by a flat, firm surface, you typically feel the bars supporting it. Got rid of it after a few years. I had trouble getting out of it, as in I'd wake up, hit my alarms, crawl back into bed, and be back asleep within a minute. Too much comfort at times.
I've also had the pleasure of birds at my windows a few times. Very interesting to be sleeping eyes closed and hear everything for miles, and notice how the clock and time has slowed to a crawl.
Otherwise, I weened off soda/caffeine as best I could, started trying to keep up with proper breathing (you would be surprised how hard stress and anxiety can make it to keep up with breathing properly), and trying to focus off negativity/pessimism/down thoughts/over thinking. Helped a lot. So does simple stretching, not sitting in chairs all the time (bad for blood flow in your legs; office workers find out the hard way), and simply walking (though getting cardio and full exercise is far better for you, even if it is once a week, better than nothing).
