    Bachs rescue remedy. I use lots of this stuff as I can get quite stressed and panicky at times.

    I'm not suprised you're stressing with all that going on! With any luck, the WI in go well tonight and will make you feel a million times better about everything else!

    Failing that, I always find putting some lavender oil on a tissue and keeping it close by helps. Is there anything you can do to distract yourself from thinking about it all? Go for a walk? Phone a friend?

    there are some good breathing techniques that you can practice....

    Diaphragmatic Breathing Technique for Anxiety Sufferers - HealthyPlace

    relax your muscles by thinking through every area of your body. sometimes we think we're relaxed when we're actually tensing our shoulders for example. when muscles are tensed the body creates more adrenalin which leads to anxiety if you're not burning the adrenal off.

    maybe take a nice bubble bath.

    reading a book, playing a nintendo DS or doing a crossword will help as your mind will be absorbed in something other than your worries.

    hope that helps... talking from experience here! ;) x

    rescue remedy and Kalms both work but don't take too much as it can make you drowsy.

    My favourite is go for a walk, always calms me down and helps me think, even if its just for 5 minutes the fresh air helps. Its a bit of an OCD for me but writing lists calms me down lol :)

    Just wanted to say good luck for your driving test! I had mine last month, the best advice i got is dont go expecting to pass but dont convince yourself your going to fail.

    Yep, I go for a walk & listen to my music, usually something loud like Nirvana. Or I lock myself away in a room with a glass of wine & a good book.

    Good luck with the driving test, don't forget to let us know how you get on :D

    Congratulations on your loss and good luck for your test. A good massage may help relax you a bit, an early night with a good book and some TLC.
