Help Stress-Relief Techniques

This is my first productive post after a long time... as far as I know (I've been through allot, too much to describe. Apologies for how I've been through all this time. It's been extremely painful for me)

How do I relief stress?
I know I need to consume lots of liquids. I keep it in check as much as possible.
I play video games, I have a hard time meditating on my own (I don't know what kind of music (I hate the silent innocent peaceful music)

I noticed dry food such as fries and even rice do no good for me. Even dry meat sources are bad. I do not consume vegetables since they have a low caloric value. Steak has been a great meal, since its juicy components and high caloric value has been a perfect combination for what I need! However it's generally not cheap, so I am wondering what other options are there...

That is regarding food. I would LOVE to hear of other techniques. If music, I would like to hear of good genres to listen to, and producers if going more specific

Exercise for me. A good, brisk walk.

I heard coloring was really good for stress, compared to meditation. I did have a great experience using one of those adult coloring books once, but I'd actually rather use a kid's one, they're more fun to me.

Yes, walking for me too. Long walks. It's healthy in a number of ways.

Music sometimes works for me, been listening to NF (rap) lately, but other times I can't stand any noise at all cause of serious sensory issues, for me any 'meditating' kind of music mostly has the opposite effect and makes me very irritated. When stressed I try to write down stuff/make poems. Best way to relief stress for me though is deep pressure, basically wrapping something around me as tight as possible.

What is this “deep pressure”?
