When you realize you are annoyed or angry, try doing some deep-breathing: take 5 to 10 slow, deep, abdominal breaths. This delivers more oxygen to your brain and helps trigger your body’s relaxation response. Talk through why you are upset, which can move your response from emotion to logic. If another person is involved try to see the situation from their perspective and seek to understand. Model grace; think beyond the situation to focus on how you can be a role model for grace under pressure. Remember, this too shall pass. Try to see humor in the situation. Focus on what really matters in the grand scheme of life.
