Easy Self-Care Tip #6:

Take a deep breath today, every time you find yourself becoming anxious or stressed.

Taking a second to yourself, to breathe deeply, helps you disconnect from the stressful situation at hand.  You give yourself a few extra seconds to contemplate and readjust before diving back in.  Whether you’re about to call your insurance company, stressed by a badly behaving friend, caring for a fast-moving child, you name it, closing your eyes and taking a deep breath can make all the difference.
