Breathe. Check out this amazing guide for anxiety by 7 cups: http://www.7cups.com/anxiety-help/
There's a part in there that talks about diaphragmatic breathing. THIS WORKS. It helps.
It's going to be okay. You will get through this. Take a slow deep breath into you stomach. Hold it for a second. Then just lightly let it go.
You will be okay.
Take deep breaths, do something relaxing. When you're not in a position to completely change what it is that you're doing, then find little distractions to think about instead. Like the good things that have happened that day or previously, or even just thinking about little songs that cheer you up or something. Just to get you through that current moment of stress or nervousness.
The common remedy of counting to ten really does work, though some upsets might find me counting as high as 50 or 75! The point is to put some distance between yourself and the uncalming event or thoughts. Creating literal distance is best in some instances, walking away to compose oneself/regroup (even if you merely visit the lavatory. Actually, the sound of running water can be calming and as warmth is soothing, running warm water over your hands while you're in there provides an added calmative.) In a spot where you can't just walk away? Turn your attention inward and tske about 20 deep breaths to center yourself. /__\
First of all Just seat down and take deep breath. It seems you are very frustrated. I can understand what you are feeling. You are strong enough to fight these small problem. Don't worry we are with you. You have to refer any professional help or refer 7CupOfTeas guide.
The quickest way to calm yourself down is to focus your attention as much as you can on what is happening around and within you right now in the present moment you are experiencing. Try to focus on your body, the sensations you feel in your muscles, your lungs, your heart. The subtle sensations we take for granted every day. Try to watch your breath, but without trying to control it. See if you can witness yourself breathing without consciously breathing in and out yourself. The breath is automatic, but to be able to witness it really takes the mind away from stress and into a feeling of calm.
Try to control your breathing as much as you can, isolate yourself from whatever stress or distraction that may be around you, and clear you head from all the negative thoughts, keep yourself focused on one thing: No situation lasts forever, everything will be okay, even the worst things come to an end.

Breath deeply, count to 10, write down how you feel. Scream in a pillow. Do so exercise, all these things can help calm you down, keeping your mind active is a very good way to stay calm.
It might depend on your certain situation. Maybe finding free time to enjoy life can help or try to focus on peaceful thoughts like thinking about the good times in your life. Eating and drinking certain foods and drinks might help. Or if it's a big problem, then maybe make a list of things you can do to both relax and reduce certain problems you may be having. Everyone might have a different way, try to think of a way that you think will clam you down.
There are some coping skills to calm yourself down. As for one that I use a lot: I like to pretend there are lemons in my hands and squeeze them as hard as I can with my eyes closed and taking a deep breath at the same time. It usually can help, but it's different with everyone.
Bring your focus to something else, whether that be your breath, something you can see/hear around you, the texture of something you can touch. Go for a walk or a run, let go of everything you're thinking about.
