How do you calm down?
What works for you?
im not doing anything to be honest. its the age. the older i get the less i get upset about anything ...with exceptions. back the days i could of reach through my monitor and choke some guys, but now.. aging is like smoking every day a big joint one day, when you get alzheimer disease, you wont be angry about anything, or at least you will forget it very quickly
ok it doenst work all the time, so i just distracct my self from poker by watching something funny on TV or by doing something else.
ohh i combo everything i can and plus weed is no drug and it might b a cure for lots o sht-o-rama when doctor finds out some stain in ur system, and its hard to let go Southern Comfort and Jack Daniels once in my hand. Simply mission impossible for me. P.s. earth is flat - its just me thats spininig
Well, nothing can calm us instantly when we're really frustrated. Sometimes you just have to do some boxing training or hit a pillow or something, let that frustration out. It's really a healthy thing (some may disagree though), as long as you don't let it out on other people
I think breathing exercises, physical exercise and changing activity are the best tricks though. Basically, focus on something else, not the thing that made you frustrated in the first place because it will most likely frustrate you more to think about it over and over. Otherwise, time is the cure for almost everything.

The one thing that calms me down is to deeply focus on the game I am playing. Remembering of course that it is merely as a result of probability that the unfortunate event took place. There's not much you can do about probability and especially when you add it to moronic donkeys who don't understand the associated odds! LOL
I cannot - even for the sake of my life - tell you how do I calm down or what calms me down but I could immediatly throw at you two dozen situations/things that pisses me off beyond belief. LIFE, amiright?!
