Observe your breathing and detect any tension in your body at these moments. Relax your shoulders and take deep relaxing breaths. View the anxiety you're feeling as some negative energy temporarily occupying your body. It will only stay there if you allow it, by feeding it your attention. Easier said than done, I know, but at least try, and who knows, maybe you'll see some positive results. Good luck!
