When you have to deal with the ups and downs of life as a reality star, it helps to have a few tricks to keep yourself calm. Luckily, Dina Manzo has some.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey star revealed her method of finding serenity by posting a photo on Instagram of her desk. 

"A little crystal love on my desk is keeping me calm: PMS'ing before a big event is never a good thing," Dina captions the shot.

Okay, so that caption is kinda bordering on TMI. Still, we respect Dina for being so open, and we're glad she has a way of staying stress-free. 

We can all get ready to seeing a lot more of Dina soon. She is officially returning to RHoNJ for Season 9, with her sister Caroline Manzo leaving the show and Jacqueline Laurita rumored to be departing as well.

Are you surprised by Dina's crystal figurines? She actually has numerous Buddha statues throughout her home, and she often posts pics of them on Instagram.

We're wondering what event Dina was attending, but we're thinking it might have had something do with her Project Ladybug cancer foundation. Whatever the event was, we hope it went well and that the figurines paid off!
