I usually listen to music. Different genres of music can help me through certain things. I also try to write about it. Just writing everything down helps me get it out of my mind and try to find a conclusion for it. When I am really stuck in a problem or super anxious about something I try to see it in a positive light and write about what lessons I am learning from it. How is this event or issue shaping me? How am I handling it, is there a better way, are there certain things that trigger specific emotions? I also take long walks. Solitude often helps me soothe myself and just stay in silence for a little while. Leaving behind your phone and people can help you focus on what is really important to you and help you get a better grip on your thoughts.
