Just an odd little piece of advice, but one I find useful, if you're getting stressed (more importantly, if you find yourself losing focus), and if you can find a couple minutes spare I find a very quick work out before jumping back on your gaming chair (or couch, or stool, or whatever you play on) can genuinely get your focus back.I tend to find doing 30+ or so press ups (mileage may vary, after 30 press-ups I'm a lil bit knackered, couldnt do many more, but most people will be athletically fitter than me) before getting back to the game helps me chill amid wiping, and refocuses me :)Your mileage may vary though, for a lot of different reasons. Just saying it helps me out sometimes, and thought it's worth posting in case even one person gives it a try and finds it helps them relax ^_^

"EDIT": Sorry that post was so badly written, haven't slept for a couple days.

A mental break of any sort is wonderful. Physical activity works, mental activity works. I keep my favorite novels by the computer for a quick reading snippet during our called breaks. One of our raid members will play 'inspirational' clips for us when we come back from breaks - we never know whether it's going to be sublime or ridiculous. I've also been known to swap computers, turn on the screen saver, and stare at random patterns for a few minutes to clear my head.
