If diarrhea and vomiting is because of anxiety you should get treatment.
At home try the following,
Breathe deep. Close your eyes and take a deep breath, then another. Let each breath out slowly. Repeat as needed.
Light exercise. Walking and stretching can soothe a stressed-out body or an over-excited mind.
Meditate. Focus on your breathing and what’s happening around you right now.
Take a time out. Distract yourself with something you enjoy, like TV, gardening, playing with pets, or a visit with friends.
Visualize. Picture yourself facing and conquering fears. For example, see yourself succeeding in that meeting.
Get support. Call up a sympathetic friend or family member and talk.
Make a plan. Just thinking about how you’ll handle a problem can help you begin to feel in control.
Eat and drink right. Alcohol can make stress and anxiety worse. Overeating can pile guilt and nausea onto an already overwrought situation.
Rest up. Whether it’s stress, anxiety, or excitement taking your body on a roller-coaster ride, the unchangeable fact is you need to rest and recharge. So daydream. Take naps. And, always get a good night’s sleep.
