The quickest and easiest way for most people to calm down is to escape any and all noise. Being in a quiet place helps most of us to hear what’s actually going on inside our head without any competing distractions.
Being in a quiet room at a spa is a very good start, but it’s even better to find somewhere private, where you can let worries about what anyone else thinks fall by the wayside.
Even at work, I will find a place to rest my eyes and take deep breaths for at least a minute, noticing any thoughts that come and letting them pass.
I’m putting effort into turning my bedroom into a quiet oasis. Drinking tea or a hot chocolate on a cold winter day, can also be very helpful.
