I listen to talking books, humorous ones. I listen to radio plays and sit-coms on the radio too. Older comedy like Parsley Sidings, Dad's Army, Yes Minister and more modern ones like Clare in the community and hut 33 work for me.
Find them on the BBC Radio player App. :idea:
Best Regards
B

Music is my main "go to" calmer, I enjoy a variety of kinds including symphonic metal, relaxational and meditational "world music," Reggae, Goth and Indie to name but a few. My favourite band are Foo Fighters.... but I love so many others too, from Abba to ZZ Top, it's impossible to list them all... I listen via Spotify or You Tube mostly these days. Before I got agoraphobic I used to love going to gigs and festivals, I also play harps for weddings and attend open mic sessions in pubs and clubs, etc, but sadly can't do that at present but I live in hope I can return to them one day in the not too distant future.

I also do a little art and craft including sketching still life, portraits and landscapes... I am into Calligraphy, and scrapbooking, I knit, I crochet and I sew beaded embroideries, I do cross stitch, macrame, and have worked in theatres making costumes for pantomimes and dancewear.

I like to cook and still feed both my Sons on a regular basis even though they can do for themselves!

Other than that I love to spend time at the beach, or in the forest.
