Something hot and warm to drink usually does the trick for me

Sleep over it, do something that makes me happy and forget that I've ever felt that way.

For getting rid of anger, punching pillows, crying it out, and meditation always helps.
For stress, a nice hot bath and watching a good anime or sitcom does the work.

Watch anime, play games. Take your mind off things before you start overthinking.

These are all good advice on how each person distracts themselves, and please do not take this as an attack on your method of coping with the vulgarities of life. Coping methods can work to remove yourself from the issue, but they are not dealing with the issue. Coping methods should be used to remove yourself from the issue so you can deal with it once you can control yourself.

You really need to figure out what has you so upset and angry. Without being able to identify what has you upset then it is impossible to deal with it. If it is with a person, then look at it simply as is it their actions? What they say or how they say stuff? Is it a situation that you do not have the ability to control or it is out of your hands and am not able to enact control?

Once you know what is causing your upset you can seek a solution: do I have to interact with this person? if no then don’t, if yes (co-worker, fellow student, other person in authority) then you can limit the interaction, pull them aside and explain your issue with them privately (this may require a third party be involved to mediate as this method can escalate the issue depending on personality types (especially in a public school of juveniles). Most the time you can simply ignore the person to the point of their annoyance. If it is a situation, you will have to learn that there is stuff I can control, stuff I need to control and stuff I cannot control. Of the 'can' type, doesn’t mean you have to, just that if it comes to it you can. Of the 'need' type, these are things like getting your butt out of bed in the morning, you know what you need to do and how it needs to be done. Of the 'cannot', this comprises of most your life, you will have to learn to relax, sit back and watch. Some times by watching you can learn how to control those situations, just remember even though you are helpless in these situations doesn’t mean others are as well, ASK FOR HELP! It is a fool that ignores help to save vanity.

If you find that everything is making you angry, then maybe an anger management program may be able to give you the tools to cope with your issues. Talk to your school counselor, if you are a young adult then talk to your doctor about seeking counseling. There are many types of councilors and not all of them need to have you go to their office to talk.

The best advice anyone could give you is to try and take your own emotions out of the picture before you try to deal with it. If you know your upset then you can still deal with it, but only if you are not at the mercy of your emotions. Be guided by them, not ruled by them.

If I am stressed or upset, I have a tendency to clean things. Which anyone who knows me, knows I hate cleaning. But there is something methodical and inane with washing dishes or dusting - it is motion which doesn't take much thought and it allows me to clear my mind and hopefully look at things more objectively.
That, and it gets the house spic 'n' span. And I guess we all do our best in a clean environment.

Unfortunately, we can't always get rid of the stress or dysfunction in our lives even if we can identify the problem. Right now, the most I can do is suck it up, realize life doesn't revolve around this one problem, and keep moving forward. It doesn't always help, but I tend to be more optimistic in my outlook on things overall...so maybe that helps too.
My husband on the other hand is a pessimist, so a lot of the stress is from having to boost him emotionally. /sigh

Oh well, back to vacuuming the living room...

Exercise helps me. And listening to music.

If I can, watch Anime. If I'm at work, I try to breathe (take deep breaths) to calm myself down. But the best thing is watching Anime for me. It's really my "miracle drug." And it doesn't have negative side effects! Exercise is also helpful.

I play video games to distract myself.

And if I can't distract myself then I just bottle up all the stress and let it slowly degrade my mind...
