When I need to calm down or just relax I fix a hot cup of caffeine free tea in the biggest cup that I can find. Then I grab a candle and go take a hot bath with my tea and nothing but candle light in the bath room. Sometimes I put epsom salt in the tub or a bath balm. It's very relaxing, I always get out feeling much better.

Love that idea!

What I do is put one of my favorite funny TV shows on, I grab a craft (models, crocheting, etc.), surround myself with familiar smells, like a perfume I wore at a good time in my life or a spray that reminds me of someone, I get in my comfiest PJs, make sure I have plenty of water and just craft for hours until the bad anxiety passes

Oh yes the idea to spray on a scent that you enjoy works great also. I use that trick a lot. It's weird how sometimes just a smell or the feel of a cool breeze on a hot day can be so uplifting.
