One of the other thing that I find really calming is yoga. The power to align your body absolutely perfectly and to be at peace while doing it. I am not very flexible, but at the same time, I still try because I love it. If you are interested in yoga, go for it! If your not flexible then yoga is even more suited for you because it help to increase your flexibility. My advice is just keep trying and stick with it. I will make some notes about good yoga books later.
