How to Get From Upset to Calm in 5 Steps
(with FREE Worksheet!)
Last week we got bad news.
Our drug plan was cut off. No warning. Now, everyone would get upset by the potential financial implications and by having been lied to for years by the administrators.
So yes, I was very upset. So was my husband.
Do you know what I mean?
Then reason kicked in. Frontal brain. Now here is what I did:
I took 5 slow, deep breaths like I always recommend to my clients. I felt calmer already.
Then I started to think how grateful I am to live in Canada, where at least hospital and doctor visits are paid. How grateful I am to be safe and not threatened by bombs falling on my head. How fortunate we are to have enough food, water and shelter. How bright sunshine is in the sky today.
How lucky I am to be able to help so many people feel better fast.
And how, in 10 years or so, when I look back, I'll probably just laugh about it...
I felt better then.
