    :smile: Hold an ice-cube in each hand and let them melt
    :smile: Snap an elastic band around your wrist

    :smile: Take all your anger out on a pillow
    :smile: Cut up a plastic bottle or candle with a knife or razor

    I find the 'elastic band' works. Infact, I constantly have an elastic band on my wrist. It's good for if youre out and you feel anxious or anything.

    One that i've found that works for me is to run your wrists under extremely cold water until the wrist goes numb and you cant take the coldness anymore.
