Re: How to de-stress / relax in the moment?

A lot of these stressors I can't avoid so I need a way to relax in that very moment when I can feel that my blood is starting to boil. Trying to reason with myself or telling myself it's no big deal doesn't work. I've tried breathing exercises but they don't really seem to help for some reason. Is there anything else I could try?

The only constraint is that it has to be something that I am able to do alongside something else (eg while.im driving) so things like "taking a bath" won't work.
I get stressed while driving sometimes, and sometimes it helps to pop in the 10% happier app I use and use one of the on-the-go meditations; there's a good one for driving, one for commuting, and one for on the way to work.

They chill me out pretty good.
