Go do something physical
Get moving to release endorphins, the “happy drug” produced in your brain which gives you a natural euphoric high. (Exercise is also proven to ward off A Guy’s Guide to Mental Health)
Recharge the batteries for a couple of minutes. Whatever the situation is just walk away and shut the door (don’t slam it), once you’re alone take a couple deep breaths.
Play some of your favourite music. Music is an emotional trigger and can be a good way to clear your mind, allowing you to put the issue into perspective.
You’re stuck in traffic, your boss is getting on your nerves or your wife’s been on your case lately? Think of something you’re grateful for and take a moment to realize just how lucky you are.
