Manage anxiety : By learning relaxation skills & learning to modify the thoughts, perceptions & beliefs that trigger your anxiety. Learning to calm your body & your mind is the key. You can learn these skills on your own, but having a mental health professional "coach" you is quicker & more effective. Biofeedback helps learn relaxation skills (www.Bcia.Org & www.Aapb.Org). Entrenched anxiety may require meds.

See Below: There are no "best way"; it's all very person-specific. You need to try different things to see what works or maybe a combination of different things might work. You might want to re-evaluate things you can/cannot control and accept the one that you cannot control; practice stress management: exercise, relaxation, sleep hygiene, creating a routine to make your environment more predictable.
