Reduce stress or anxiety. Try relaxation techniques, such as meditation, yoga, or deep breathing or aromatherapy. Avoid stimulants. Stimulants, including caffeine, nicotine, some cold medicines and energy drinks, can make your heart beat quickly or irregularly. Avoid illegal drugs. Certain drugs, such as cocaine and amphetamines, can bring on heart palpitations.
