Take a Breathe

We all have moments of overwhelming frustration. Those times when we feel like we've just run into a brick wall. When you feel yourself tensing up, and the feeling of anxiety starts to take over. These are all signs that it is time to walk away for a moment. Stay calm and take a deep breath. Breathe in nice and deep and then slowly release that breathe. Remember that happiness is not having any problems at all, rather it is how we solve those problems.

Remember that you are strong enough to handle any situation. It is okay to seek guidance and help from others. Keep in mind that this situation will not last forever and it is not the end of the world. Even if a situation feels like it is life changing, stay calm. Return to the situation only when you are clear minded enough to address it.

Being able to identify what trigges your stress, anexity, impatience and anger can help alleviate your anxiety, calm you down and allow you to analyze the situation at hand. So when you realize that you are starting to feel the weight of the world on your shoulders, take a step back from the situation and take a deep breath before confronting the issue at hand.

You know yourself; do not allow a situation to escalate before excusing your self, do not force yourself to be uncomfortable. Take a deep breathe and collect your thoughts. Knowing when to excuse yourself can be a good tool to use when learning how to control your anger and help to reduce stress and anxiety. Practice deep breathing and utilize it often.

Remember that you are not alone! Even when you feel that you are fighting a battle by yourself, remember that there are others out here in the same situation. Pick up your phone or tablet or get on the computer and connect with others. Share your struggles with a friend, exchange stories and solutions. We can all benefit from one another. Just breathe through your difficult moments and they shall pass. Tomorrow is coming and you are the only one

who can decide to make it a better day.
