I take deep, and I mean deep, breaths. I haven't taken any kind of medication for the stress so right now I try and surround myself by things that are soothing or light e.g. as in books, movies, music, etc. To help keep me a little less on edge for when I am away from anything that might be comforting.
And sometimes I just bawl my eyes out. It makes me feel better mentally though I do notice some stomach upset after severely crying hah..
