Ability to keep your head cold in stressful situations and not letting your emotions to pop in not only will help to dramatically increase quality of your life but it’s also crucial in life or death situations (of course I hope you’ll never get yourself into one).
Plus stress is bad for your health especially for your heart so you should stay away from it as much as possible.
Here's how to do it:
- When you're in a stressful scenario and begin to hyperventilate and feel your heart pounding, begin by taking in a deep breath over a 4 count
- Hold it for a 4 count, and
- Exhale through pursed lips for a 4 count.
- Repeat until calm(er)
