Picoblog Question – 2020 – Post #34

What is your best tip for handling unexpected stress?

My two cents, but please share yours:

Every time I get an unwelcome surprise, I stop and take several deep breaths, inhaling for four counts, holding for four counts, and exhaling for eight counts.

If I’m alone where no one can hear me, I also yell my frustrations at the top of my lungs, until I feel silly. At this point, I’m ready to deal with the source of the stress.

How about you?
