Being in a hurry all the time drains your energy. Getting caught up in things beyond your control stresses you out. If you’d like to reduce stress and become calm and cool and wanted to compose yourself, put the following 12 steps into practice will surely help you but you need to be little more patient.

1. Let it go.
This thing that seems like the end of the world right now? Stressing out about the situation you’re in won’t do any good because you’re already in it, so just let it go.Keep calm and carry on.
keep calm and carry on

2. Breathe.
The next time you’re faced with a stressful situation that makes you want to hurry, stop what you’re doing for one minute and perform the following steps:

I.        Take five deep breaths in and out (your belly should come forward with each inhale).
II.     Imagine all that stress leaving your body with each exhale.
III. Smile. Fake it if you have to. It’s pretty hard to stay grumpy with goofy grin on your face.
IV.Feel free to repeat the above steps every few hours at work or home if you need to.

3. Loosen up.
After your breathing session, perform a quick body scan to identify any areas that are tight or tense (Clenched jaw? Rounded shoulders? Anything else that isn’t at ease?). Gently touch or massage any of your body parts that are under tension to encourage total relaxation (it might help to imagine you’re in a place that calms you: a beach, hot tub, or nature trail, for example).

4. Chew slowly.
Slow down at the dinner table if you want to learn to be patient and lose weight. Be a mindful eater who pays attention to the taste, texture, and aroma of every dish. Chew slowly while you try to guess all of the ingredients that were used to prepare your dish. Chewing slowly will also reduce those dreadful late-night cravings that sneak up on you after work.

5. Enjoy the journey.
Focusing on the end result can quickly become exhausting. Chasing a big, bold and audacious goal that’s going to require a lot of time and patience? Split it into several mini-goals so you’ll have several causes for celebration. Giving yourself consistent positive feedback will help you grow patience, stay encouraged, and find more joy in the process of achieving your goals.

6. Look at the big picture.
The next time you find your stress level skyrocketing, take a deep breath, and ask yourself:
Will this matter to me…
Next week?
Next month?
Next year?
In 10 years?
Hint: No, it won’t. I bet most of the stuff that stresses you wouldn’t matter the next week (maybe not even the next day). Stop agonizing over things you can’t control, because you’re only hurting yourself.

7. Practice patience every day.
Below are a few easy ways you can practice patience every day, increasing your ability to remain calm and cool in the face of stress.

8. COUNT TO 10
When I feel like I am getting bombarded from every angle, I take a short break and then look at the situation with a fresh pair of eyes. Just taking those few seconds to count to 10 gives me the distance I need for a new perspective. It makes me realize, for instance, that the problem I am attacking isn't the primary issue after all.

There are sometimes good reasons to change our plans, such as a new set of circumstances arising or receiving new information about a situation. In the absence of a compelling reason, however, stick to the plans we have outlined for ourselves. Random changes will only confuse us and put us behind schedule.

Scolding ourselves for all we didn't get done does not help. Instead we are far better off being grateful for all that we did do. The more we practice looking on the bright side of things, the less frightening and grim a stressful situation seems.

No need to go on a retreat to the mountains—five minutes of peace is all it takes to reap the benefits of meditation. There’s evidence that just two quick bouts of silent meditation per day can relieve stress and depression . Find a comfortable spot in a quiet place, concentrate on your breath, and feel those anxieties start to disappear.

12.Listen to Your Favorite Song
Sometimes listening to song with close attention on the lyrics to a favorite tune makes everything seem all right. If you’re in a public place (that isn’t the opera), just listening to music can be a quick fix for a bad mood. Classical music can be especially relaxing right before bedtime.
