I often feel really anxious and overwhelmed by my emotions. Here are some tips which I use to calm me down in these situations.

Talk

Do something you like
After you did everything, you have to relax. Don't keep busy with it or the feelings will return. Do some things that makes you feel comfortable and calm. Watch a movie or series, drink tea, make art, read a book, go outside for a walk, meet some friends,...
