Waiting puts a Weight on my Mind

I just mailed off a Very Important Application. How do I remain calm in the weeks or months before I hear back?

The results of this application will seriously impact the next few years of my life. The application is done and sent off (yay!), so there's nothing more I can do about it now. But still, worries creep into my mind and I start feeling anxious about it. I won't be hearing back for at least a month, if not longer.
I'm trying to keep myself busy, which is helping, but it's the quiet moments when I'm on the bus or about to fall asleep when my mind wanders and my heart starts to race. How can I convince my brain to forget about this until I get the results?
