    You need another point of view outside of the situation..just like you are watching a film...

    Always remember to take deep breaths. Never be alone with your problems. Share your thoughts with people you care about, that will make the situation less tough.

    Ignore what ever dumb person and the dumb things that they are saying.  Although it comes of rude you will maintain your attitude

    I know it is tough to try to calm yourself down during certain situations.  The best thing to do is to take some deep breaths and try to think about good things as you go into a situation that makes you upset or irked.  If it helps, you can even try to make a joke about it, even though it may not be a laughing matter.  Good luck!

    Calm is what you have to be when people look up to you, and all you can be when things are out of your hands

    Tell yourself to stay calm, and try to listen to yourself. All that internal conversation will distract you from whatever is tough and give your subconscious some time to work it out. Deep breaths help too, as does confidence in yourself or in the success of the situation.

    Have you ever heard of "mindfulness"? It is a wonderful practice, and if you are going through a continuously tough time, you might want to look into it. It is like the white collar American's version of Buddhism.
