One of the quickest and easiest ways to relieve stress, high blood pressure, rapid pulse, and other physical effects of stress, is to stop what you're doing and breathe. Not just breathe, but B R E A T H E . Close your eyes, concentrate on what you're doing, and deliberately attempt to slow your heart rate and breathing.
Relaxation breathing is a stress reducer that can be done just about any time, any where. It will only take about 2 minutes, but can have a profound effect on your body and mind the better you get at it. The more you do it, the quicker your body will respond to it. Like training for anything, it's going to take some practice, so don't just try it once or twice and decide that "it doesn't work".
In the beginning, it may be necessary to spend a little more time on this (and I mean like maybe a whole whopping *4* minutes, instead of 2 ), but as you become familiar with the relaxation breathing technique and your body becomes trained to slow down to this cue, your time will decrease.
