1) Do aerobic exercise which increases the oxygen flow to the brain. If you do not have time to go to the gym you can get up and walk around your office or do deep breathing exercises which in turn helps reduce stress by sending more oxygen to the brain.
2) Prioritize and do only what is most important. When you prioritize you will generally find some or a lot of what you do that causes you stress does not require doing.
3) Make a change for a few minutes and do something different when you are really stressed even if it means leaving your office and sometimes especially if it means leaving you office and changing your setting for a few minutes.
For example, I ride my motorcycle when I am really stressed. A good thirty minutes riding out in the open away from the office can reduce a lot of stress and help me focus my efforts.

My nephew swears by his motorcycle and stress relief. It makes him happy to just talk about riding, and ecstatic when he comes back from a ride.
