Everyone worries about something or another in life. The rule of thumb is this: The more you have in the way of family and material objects, the more you tend to worry.   You cannot avoid problems in life; they are inevitable. However, you can deal with them effectively so that they do not overwhelm you.
Here are some ways in which you can become calmer.
Start your day early with meditation. This will set the pace for the rest of your day.
Avoid tea, coffee, alcohol, soft drinks, processed and spicy food. These agitate the body and the mind.
Listen to soothing music.
Unless it is urgent, do not react immediately to what others are saying. Think about it and reflect upon it. Give it some time before replying.
As much as possible, eat quietly in a calm atmosphere. Put away the cellphone while you eat.
Feel good about a job well done.
When things do not go as expected, do not fret and knit your brows. It is not the end of the world.
Even if it is the end of the world, enjoy the remaining moments rather than worry about them.
Accept that things will go wrong from time to time.
Actively think about all the good that has come your way in life so far.
Try to do some good to someone every single day through words, actions and thoughts.
