In DBT, a big part of learning distress tolerance is through the practice of mindfulness. This can be as simple as sitting still and focussing all your attention on the sounds you hear, without judging or reacting, or washing the dishes and focusing solely on the feel and sound of the soap, water, dishes.

I find I need to practice doing this all the time, so that when I am distressed, I can easily call up the skills.

Mindfulness can also include meditation and deep-breathing, self-soothing techniques, which, again, should be practiced regularly.
