Christmas is coming. A happy time for you? A stressful time? Feeling the pressure of family and friends wanting or needing too much of you? Here is a quick fix that can help you. When times get bad, take a deep breath in but pause before breathing out. Breathe out and pause again before breathing in. Do this several times. It is the pause that makes difference. It gives the brain time to think “I will remain calm.” If it helps, print this picture and stick it on your fridge.
