# Don’t reply to anyone who tells you to calm down, you won’t
# Physically distance yourself from the situation
# Create a mental diversion by counting to 10 SLOWLY and deeply
# Tighten the muscles in your body and then gently release them
# Try to rationalise the situation at hand AFTER following these steps.
You will not be able to do so during them
If you still struggle with calming yourself, you may have underlying/unresolved issues that need attention. Be kind to yourself and seek professional help.
