Listening to music, reading a book, and write write write. I find that when I'm writing, I don't think of anything else except what I'm writing about. Also it helps that you write down what is troubling you and then put it away... experts say it releases anxiety. It might make you cry.. then cry. It might make you angry.. then get angry and write down how angry you are. Experts say that when we write down how we feel when we are sad or angry, the healing begins. I hope I help a little.
Happy New Year,
