Title explains it all. How do you relax/calm yourself, in any situation? Or do you just not care about being calm, and just destroy everything in your path?

I really don't have on technique for all situations, but my most common technique is realizing I'm agitated in the first place. When I fail to calm myself, it's usually because I failed that bit of self-awareness that's necessary to talk myself down (stepping outside of yourself or some metaphysical rubbish).

Sometimes that awareness is too late or never comes, but if it does, then self coaching usually does the trick for most situations that don't involve guns.

My dogs. They are pure and sweet, and no matter how upset I am, they are such beautiful creatures that they calm me in an instant.

For me two sounds help me calm down, the two best sounds being the sound of the woods and the sound of bustling city street life. They are on the two ends of the spectrum for me, but I find them both calming.

Music and reading usually calm me down the most, though sometimes just crying helps me to let out all my stress and then I'm fine again

Walking. If I can I'll take a walk. If I already know in advance that I'm going to be dealing with a stressful issue or time or circumstance then I'll take my walk before it's time to deal with that.

Different things relax me like, Hiking, Looking at the stars and moon at night, music, etc... What I usually do, though is this

Drink a beer or two (on the weekends)


Listen to some chill relaxing music like:

Goodnight Julia

Kimi ga Yobu Namae

OR

drink beer and watch a relaxing type of show

everyone has to sleep sometime .... just making a point that everyone has to calm down at some point they can't just keep destroying xD

anyways for me, a nice good ole cup of tea and some anime helps me relax. depending on the game i can relax.
couple beers on the weekend is always nice basically as another had stated some music can help me relax depending on what it is and staring up at the stars or nice blue sky since we can't see stars all to much in the summer time in Alaska.
fishing is releasing until you hook one xD
