There are a variety of tips to help ourselves cope with stress and anxiety, so here are some useful ways to calm down …
1. Deep Breathing
Trying some deep breathing really is one of the most effective ways to calm down.

So take some deep, slow breaths, and you should find that you start to feel less stressed.
Focus your breathing in your abdomen (most people push their chest out) - the correct way of breathing is to push your stomach out as you breathe in, and in as you breathe out.
