Health Tip: Stop Stress
Take several deep breaths to help you calm down

By Diana Kohnle

(HealthDay News) -- The next time you feel you're under too much stress, the American Heart Association offers these "emergency stress stoppers" to help calm you down:

  • Before you begin to speak, count to 10 and take several deep breaths.
  • Walk away from whatever is stressful, and decide to come back to it later. If there's a big problem, break it down into smaller problems that are easier to address individually.
  • Take a walk. If you're driving, stay in the slow lane, away from heavy traffic.
  • If you've made a mistake, say you're sorry.
  • If you're repeatedly stressed about being late, set your watch five to 10 minutes ahead.
  • Do something to make yourself happy and relaxed, such as hugging a loved one, smelling a flower or giving someone a smile.
