Something I used to do a long time ago was pray the rosary. Some might think it boring, but it does have a calming effect. Now that I am not religious, I don't do so now. That and my Protestant wife tossed out my small number of rosaries after we got married. Most were el cheapos, though I had a nice onyx one my late grandmother gave me. Is this something you do? In what tradition (Catholic, Orthodox, Anglican, etc.)? Thanks for sharing.
