Another great way to calm the mind and pull yourself out of an emotional spiral is using numbers. Numbers are left brain activity. When you activate the left hemisphere of your brain, you pull the energy out of the right side which is your emotional side.
* Counting down from 20 or 50 or 100 and actually seeing the numbers in your mind is a great way to calm yourself down.
* Try doing some basic math: 2+2=4, 4+4=8, or just say one of the calculations over and over again.
* Sudoku puzzles are also very good. Start with the easy ones.
