Great topic. I can only think of a few things I do

- for general anxiety, I usually distract myself by watching movies, reading, or web-surfing. This isn't really the best thing, since I end up procrastinating things I need to do. But otherwise it's relatively harmless

- for anger, I'll take a walk to work it off physically.

- for everything else, I guess what I do comes under mindfulness. I just go inward and notice the components of it-- the physical sensations, the thoughts. I find this really comforting since it immediately breaks it down into harmless components. Sometimes this will stop it, or sometimes it just keeps coming back together, and I repeat. I do this a lot during the work day when things are winding me up.
