being around people of high consciousness, and occassionally reading there work (i try to read 15 minutes a day of their work) can help you feel better in my opinion

from Yogananda on this topic:

"Associating with strong, serene, kind, spiritual people is of great benefit to the nervous person. Even a few moments in the company of a saint can work wonders in producing calmness and quiet."
