Try smaller portions. Many of the foods that can cause gas are part of a healthy diet. So, try eating smaller portions of problem foods to see if your body can handle a smaller portion without creating excess gas.
Eat slowly, chew your food thoroughly and don't gulp. If you have a hard time slowing down, put down your fork between each bite.
Avoid chewing gum, sucking on hard candies and drinking through a straw. These activities can cause you to swallow more air.
Check your dentures. Poorly fitting dentures can cause you to swallow excess air when you eat and drink.
Don't smoke. Cigarette smoking can increase the amount of air you swallow.
Exercise. Physical activity may help move gas through the digestive tract.
If the odor from passing gas concerns you, limiting foods high in sulfur-containing compounds — such as broccoli, Brussels sprouts or other cruciferous vegetables, beer, and foods high in protein — may reduce distinctive odors. Pads, underwear and cushions containing charcoal also may help absorb unpleasant odors from passing gas.

If you've ever wanted to just smash things to release stress, then you're in luck! In case you missed it, the "rage cage" is a new place you can go to smash stuff when you're mad.
The concept is simple: pay $44.50 and take 20 minutes to just smash a bunch of stuff in a room to get your anger out. You can use bats, hammers, and even a crowbar. Your "weapon" of choice is totally up to you.
One option allows you to break all your own junk, while the next option allows couples to tag team stuff in a room including two printers, because who doesn't love to smash something that never works in the first place anyway?
Another idea? Get a bunch of stuff you don't want and can't donate and a bat and go to town in your basement. It's free, you just have to cleanup afterward and run the risk of your neighbors calling the police.
