No matter who you speak for, you will help more if you speak calmly and politely. That means not speaking in anger, but calming down. Calming Breaths help.
How to take a Calming Breath:
1. Breathe in slowly to a count of five. It is helpful to tighten all your muscles beginning at your toes and moving up through your body while you breathe in. If for some reasons you do not want to tense your muscles, it still helps to imagine tensing and then releasing them
2. Hold your breath and the tension for another count of five.
3. Breathe out slowly for another count of five, and as you a breathe out slowly release the tension starting at your head and moving down to your toes.
4. Breathe normally, smile gently, and say a silent “Thank you.”
Warning: When learning Calming Breath, start when you are already relaxed. This insures stress will not interfere with its effectiveness.
Once you learn Calming Breath add other Self-Soothing exercises. Buy my book “Self-soothing To Stay Calm In Your Life.”
Thank you and stay strong.
