What are some unhelpful ways to deal with stress?

UNhelpful? many! There are countless ways people try to deal with stress that are unhelpful. Picking fights, drinking too much, zoning out in front of a tv or computer screen, denying the problem, taking it out on one's spouse, kids, employees, or pets, hoping it will go away by itself, engaging in distracting risk-taking behavior, banging your head against a wall... The list is nearly endless.
Stress. Using alcohol or other drugs to cope, eating too much or too little, no exercise, isolating, being temperamental rather than sharing with close friends. Best.
