Warning: This is may sound a bit weird but it sometimes works for some people! Take a coin sized dot of toothpaste and apple the back of your neck, while in the shower. Now after a couple of minutes, wash it off and step out. You will instantly feel a cool rush and that should keep you calm for a while. Or else, switch to cool menthol shower gel!

5. Tip your hat
