I like watching aquarium fish, there is just something very soothing and relaxing in watching them swim around for a few minutes. It is close to meditating I guess, it frees my mind from everything else. Also, it seems to calm down hyper kids if I place them in front of aquarium to watch the fish (eat) for a bit.

ps. This is just my opinion in the matter.
A great big refill of my benzo of the week.
I love to take a very hot bath (one of the ones that take you 5 minutes just to get in and all of your veins come to the surface of your skin) with candles and soothing music and a great big glass of ice cold chocolate milk. Something about the contrast between the steamy bath and the freezing milk is so relaxing to me. Aaaahhhh!

Video games. Though sometimes that's hardly therapeutic, as I usually end up throwing my controller and screaming obsenities when my team gives up a goal in injury time or a 4th quarter TD to lose the game.

Someone else mentioned GTA Vice City, I LOVE that game... what's better than to steal fancy cars, drive around the streets like a maniac and get away with it
Haven't tried FFXI yet, I'm sure it's addicting.... I'm afraid to go down that road

Another thing I do to relax is get a pile of all the magazines I haven't read, kick back on the sofa and just browse through them at a liesurely pace while sipping a hot cup of tea.
